17. AL-WAHHAAB – THE ALL-GIVING BESTOWER

The Most Generous in giving abundant blessings perpetually, to all who are in need, to the deserving and undeserving, without expecting or needing any returns. Thus, He is the Only One we may petition and expect good from.

The most beautiful thing about getting a ‘hiba’ (gift) from al-Wahhaab is that it is the kind of giving that does not expect anything in return. Therefore, He gives and continues to give whether you obey Him or not, whether you appreciate Him or not, whether you acknowledge that He is al-Wahhaab or not! Despite our disobedience of Him day and night, He gives us the hiba of health, wealth, family, and countless other things!

And the most precious hiba that Allah can give anyone is the gift of guidance, and keeping us firm upon that guidance. A beautiful dua’ in the Qur’an states:

“Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and give us mercy from You. Truly, You are Al-Wahhab (the All-Giver)” (Aal-Imran, 3:8)
