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.

Hasbunallahu Wa Ni Mal Wakeel

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.

Hasbunallahu wa ni’mal Wakeel is in surah Al Imran, second longest surah in the Quran, verse 173. The full ayat is:

“Those (i.e., believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, “verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore fear them, but it (only) increased them in faith, and they said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the best disposer of affairs (for us).” Surah Al Imran verse 173

This verse was revealed regarding the Companions of the Prophet (may Allah be pleased with them) when they suffered injuries, bruises and death during the Battle of Uhud.

Thereafter, they were informed that Abu Sufyan had decided to return and has gathered people against them.

So, the Prophet (SAW) encouraged them to face him. They responded positively to Allah and His Messenger after they had sustained injuries and had been afflicted with this great misfortune.

Seventy of them had been killed as martyrs in the cause of Allah. The Prophet (SAW) and others had undergone untold hardship but they still responded to Allah and His Messenger.

  • they gained them pleasure of Allah Azzawajal.

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.

Hadith On Hasbunallahu wa Ni’mal Wakeel

Some of the authentic Hadith about these four beautiful words are from Sahih al-Bukhari and Riyadus Saliheen:

1. Hadith

Narrated Ibn `Abbas: ‘Allah is Sufficient for us and He Is the Best Disposer of affairs,” was said by Abraham when he was thrown into the fire; and it was said by Muhammad when they (i.e. hypocrites) said, “A great army is gathering against you, therefore, fear them,” but it only increased their faith and they said: “Allah is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer (of affairs, for us).”

Sahih al-Bukhari 4563

2. Hadith

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “How can I feel at ease when the Angel of the Trumpet, (Israfil) has put his lips to the Trumpet and is waiting for the order to blow it”. He (ﷺ) perceived as if this had shocked his Companions, so he (ﷺ) told them to seek comfort through reciting: ‘Hasbunallah wa ni’mal-Wakil [Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)]”.

Riyad as-Salihin 409 At-Tirmidhi, who classified it as Hadith Hasan

Prophet Ibraaheem AS uttered this statement: “Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs” when he was thrown into fire.

That was because Ibraaheem AS called his people to the worship of Allah alone without associating a partner with Him. 

But they refused, and remained unnecessarily obstinate upon disbelief and joining partners with Allah.

One day, he smashed their idols into rubbles leaving the biggest among them. When they returned, they found their idols broken. 

So they sought to revenge for them – and the refuge is with Allah. They wondered what they’ll do to Ibraaheem. 

“They said, ‘Burn him’” to support of their idols “…and assist your gods- if you are to act.” 

Consequently, they kindled a huge fire and then threw Ibraaheem into it! It was said that the intensity of the heat from the fire would not allow them move near it. 

So they flung Ibraaheem into it with a ballista.When they hurled him he said, “Hasbunallahu wani’ma al- Wakeel”: And what followed after that? Allah – the Exalted – says,“We (Allah) said: 

‘O fire! Be you coolness and safety for Ibraaheem.’” (Surah Al-Anbiyaa: 69)

Coolness is the opposite of hotness, and safety refers to the opposite of destruction. This is because the fire is hot, scorching, and destructive but Allah commanded this fire to be cool and safe, and so, it became cool and safe. 

The second intimate friend of Allah who said, “Hasbunallahu wa ni’ma al- Wakeel” was the Prophet SAW. 

While returning from the Battle of Uhud along with his Companions – may Allah be pleased with them – it was said to them that, 

“People have gathered against you; they plan to invade Madeenah and exterminate you.” Yet, they said, “Hasbunallahu wan’ma al-Wakeel.” Allah – the Exalted – says: 

“So they returned with Grace and Bounty from Allah. No harm touched them; and they followed the good Pleasure of Allah, and Allah is Owner of Great Bounty.” (Al-lmraan: 174)

So it is necessary for everyone who sees people gathered against him or in transgression against him to say “Hasbunallahu wan’ma al-Wakeel.” 

Allah will suffice him from their evil as He sufficed prophets Ibraaheem AS and Muhammad SAW.

Therefore, this statement should be in your mind at all times; whenever you observe hostility from people towards you.

Allah alone grants success.

Adopted from explanation of Riyadus Saliheen by Sheikh ibn Uthaimeen.
