Hasbunallahu Wa Ni Mal Wakeel Meaning In English
Hasbunallahu wa ni mal Wakeel means Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs.
Hasbiyyallahu Wa Ni Mal Wakeel
Hasbiyyallahu wa ni’imal wakeel means Allah (Alone) is sufficient for me and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs.
Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us: that is, He is enough for us in our affairs and difficulties.“
And He is the best disposer of affairs (for us) meaning that, He – the Mighty and Sublime – is Sufficient for us because He is surely the best Master and the best Helper.
However, He is the Helper for the one who seeks Him as Helper and who looks for assistance from Him.
Allah – the Mighty and Sublime – is the Most Honorable of the honorable and the Most Generous of the generous.
Thus, when the individual places his trust in Him, He assists him, supports him, and disposes his affairs for him.
However, the problem emanates when the individual turns away largely from Him and depends on material resources and not divine means.

Hasbi Allahu wa nimal wakeel was the dhikr Ibrahim عليه السلام made when he was being thrown into fire. A fire that was build up and lit for a month according to some narrations. A fire that his family approved of and gathered to witness him burn in.
If you are burning through the fires of this life and your family is just a spectator to it remember to make the dhikr of Hasbi Allahu wa nimal wakeel – Allah is with me and He is the best disposer of affairs.
Allah is sufficient for me – I don’t need anyone else.
If this dhikr was good enough for Ibrahim alaihis salam abul ambiya, it should be good enough for the followers of Ibrahim alaihs salam.
Allah cooled down the fire to grant Ibrahim alaihi salam ease and safety. Allah will grant you similar ease and safety.
You don’t need anyone save Allah to control your circumstances. Flee to Allah – He will protect, honour and safeguard.
