HasbunAllaahu wa ni’mal Wakeel – Allaah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu ‘ala rasulullaah

Amma ba’d

Narrated ibn Abbas radi Allaahu `anhuma:

(The saying) “Allaah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)” was said by Ibraahiim `alehi wa salaam when he was thrown into the fire; and it was said by Muhammad sala Allahu `alehi wa salaam when they (the 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 “Allaah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).” 

[Sahih al-Bukhari Vol 6. hadith No. 86; see also Qur’an sura Al-`Imraan (3) verse 173. From the Qur’an translation of Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilaalii and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khaan]

Shaykh Badiudeen (rahimahullaah): When I went to see Allamah Ehsan Elahi Zaheer on his death bed,
he kept saying

حَسْبُنَا اللَّـهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ 3:173

Related by Imaam ad-Daarimee in his Sunan as #3382 and #3383 from ‘Abdullah bin Mas’ood-may Allah be pleased with him-and it has been ruled as being marfu’oo(#1) that he said: “Whoever recites ten verses from Soorat-ul-Baqarah at night time the shaytaan will not enter the house that evening until the morning, (also) the first four verses of Soorat-ul-Baqarah, Aayat-ul-Kursee and the two verses after it, in addition to the three last verses of Soorat-ul-Baqarah beginning with: {…To Allah belongs what is in the heavens…}

And in another narration: “…shaytaan or anything he dislikes will not come near him nor his family that day, and it is not recited over a mentally ill person except that he will recover from his illness.” At-Tabaraanee related it in his Kabeer as #8673, and al-Haythamee said in his Majma’ (#17014): “The men of this narration are the narrators of the Saheeh except that ash-Sha’bee did not hear directly from Ibn Mas’oud.”

(#1) T.N. Al-Khateeb (rahimahullah) said: “It is what has been narrated by a companion directly from the Messenger (may the peace & blessings of Allah be upon him)”. Al-Baa’eeth-ul-Hatheeth Page 54.
