Enough is Allah for Me

bismillah1114444

Imam al-Ghazali (r.a.) wrote in The Revival of the Religious Sciences: Invocations & Supplications: “Allah is enough for me in my religion.  Allah is enough for me in my mundane life.  Allah, the Generous, is enough for me in what distresses me.  Allah, the Affectionate, is enough for me against him who oppresses me.  Allah, the Stern, is enough for me against him who hurts me by evil.  Allah, the Compassionate, is enough for me at death.  Allah, the Merciful, is enough for me at the Inquisition in the Grave.  Allah, the Generous, is enough for me at the Reckoning.  Allah, the Beneficent, is enough for me at the Scales.  Allah, the Powerful, is enough for me at the crossing of the Traverse.”

But if they turn away, Say: “Allah sufficeth me: there is no god but He: On Him is my trust,- He the Lord of the Throne (of Glory) Supreme!” [Qur’an 9.129]
