              Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel
                  By Muqeet Mujtaba Ali
Who doesn’t need help, care, protection and victory?
Who doesn’t feel weak, over-powered by difficulties, stress
and worries?
In their quest for peace and tranquility, some affluent
sections of society resort to sleeping pills, drugs and what
not.
Poor curse their miseries and desire that they become rich.
They say grass appears greener on the other side!
But strange is the way of a true Muslim!
Here there is no question of the grass getting dry. His side
of the grass is always greener. Subhaanallah!
The roots of this amazing grass are strong and deep. They
are being continuously fed with the waters of Imaan.
Willing submission to the Master, the very Controller of all
affairs, keeps the grass ever green.
Don’t you find the presence of amazing dew drops on this
amazing grass?

The dew drops of Contentment, Hope, Trust, Willingness
to submit to the decree of Almighty Lord?
These dew drops in the life a Muslim contain miraculous
elements to keep the grass greener even in the most
harshest and cruelest of life’s climates!
Read and reflect over this beautiful hadeeth:




    Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: When
    (Prophet) Ibraheem was thrown into the fire, he said:
    “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and, He is the Best
    Disposer of affairs.” So did Messenger of Allah,
    Muhammad (sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam), when he was
    told: “A great army of the pagans had gathered against
    him, so fear them”. But this (warning) only increased him
    and the Muslims in Faith and they said: “Allah (Alone) is
    sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs
    (for us)”.[Al-Bukhari].
When Ibraheem alaihis salam was thrown in the fire by
those who thought that they had power over all things, he
made a supplication the effect of which made the world sit
up and watch in amazement!
                                                      Page 2 of 12

Fire getting cool! It could not burn even a hair of Prophet
Ibraheem, Peace be upon him!
This is the effect of saying: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal
Wakeel!
Allah (alone) is Sufficient for us, and what an Excellent
Guardian He is! He is the Best Disposar of affairs!
In a seemingly overpowering situation, Prophet
Muhammad, sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, and his great
companions declared that Allah is Sufficient for Help and
Solace and that He is the Best Disposar of affairs for us!




    When people said to them: ‘Behold, a host has gathered
    around you and you should fear them’, it only increased
    their faith and they answered: ‘Allah is Sufficient for us;
    and what an excellent Guardian He is!’
    (Surah aal Imran: 173)

During the course of his Da’wah, when he encountered
rejection from some people, Prophet Muhammad, sal-lal-
laahu-alaihi-wasallam, was commanded by Allah to
say: Hasbiyaallahu laa ilaaha illa huw, ‘alayhi tawakkaltu
wa huwa rabbul ‘arshil adheem:




                                                        Page 3 of 12
www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
                          The Qur'an Blog




    Yet, if they should turn away, then tell them: “Allah is
    sufficient for me; there is no true god but He. In Him I
    have put my trust. He is the Lord of the Mighty
    Throne.”(Surah Tawbah: 129)

When his companions got scared of the coming of the Day
of Judgement, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-
wasallam instructed them to recite: Hasbunallahu Wa
Ni’mal Wakeel.
    Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him)
    reported: Messenger of Allah 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 (the Prophet) perceived as if this had shocked his
    Companions, so he told them to seek comfort through
    reciting:‘Hasbunallah wa ni’mal-Wakeel [Allah (Alone)
    is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of
    affairs (for us)]“. (For Arabic Text, read Hadeeth No.
    409 here )

In the event of fear and anxiety one should seek the help
of Allah and frequently recite this ayah of the glorious
Qur’an “Hasbunallahu wa ni’mal Wakeel” Allah (Alone) is
Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of
affairs (for us).” (3:173).




    If you ask them: “Who created the heavens and the
    earth?” they will surely answer: “Allah.” Tell them: “What
    do you think, then, of the deities whom you call upon
                                                       Page 4 of 12
www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
                           The Qur'an Blog




    instead of Allah? If Allah should will that an affliction
    befall me, will those deities remove the harm inflicted by
    Him? Or if Allah should will that I receive (His) Mercy, will
    they be able to withhold His Mercy from me?” Say: “Allah
    is sufficient for me; those who have to put their trust, let
    them put their trust in Him. (Surah Az Zumar: 38)

Reciting Hasbunallahu Wa Nimal Wakeel provides the
healing touch that is very much necessary in one’s life.
By putting one’s complete Trust in Allah, by leaving
matters unto Him, by seeking only His grace and mercy,
by accepting His decree, by submitting to His Will – a
Muslim can equip oneself to face the challenges of life.
And this one single verse Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal
Wakeel is a source of all strength, all comfort!
So let us make it a point to recite this morning and
evening. Day and night. On and off. Once. Twice. A
hundred times. As much as possible.
Let me conclude by quoting two inspiring verses from the
glorious Qur’an:
    He who fears Allah, He will find a way out for him, and
    will provide him sustenance from whence he never even
    imagined. Whoever puts his trust in Allah, He shall suffice
    him. Surely Allah brings about what He decrees; Allah
    has set a measure for everything.(Surah At-Talaaq: 2-3)

May Allah give us the guidance to follow His path until our
last breath. Aameen.
Jazakallah Khayr.

                        Reflections on
                ‫ﻧِﻌﻢ اﻟﻤﻮﻟَﻰ وﻧِﻌﻢ اﻟﻨﺼﯿﺮ‬
                ُ ِ ‫ْ َ ْ َ ْ ٰ َ ْ َ ﱠ‬
             Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer
                 By Muqeet Mujtaba Ali

Today (1st Muharram 1434), I would like to discuss on this
very popular statement: Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man
Naseer! T
his statement is generally said immediately after yet
another most inspiring statement: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal
Wakeel!
Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel, Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man
Naseer!
These two phrases/statements are mentioned separately in
different Surahs in the Qur’an. The meaning and the
context of these two statements are so striking that we
notice many among Muslims uttering and proclaiming
them together. While it is not ‘a must’ to say them
together, yet the miraculous beauty of the Qur’anic words
weaves a tapestry in the canvas of one’s mind!
Subhanallah!
The word ‫( ﻣﻮﻟﻰ‬Maula) comes from the Arabic root ‫و ل ي‬
(w-l-y) which means:



                                                      Page 6 of 12
www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
                              The Qur'an Blog




to be near, be close, lie next, to adjoin, be adjacent, to
border, to be a friend, to back up, to take control, helper,
backer, guardian, benefactor, patron, companion, partner.
From the same root comes the word ‫( وﻟﻲ‬waliyy) which
means:
near, adjacent, helper, supporter, benefactor, sponsor,
friend, close associate, relative, patron, protector, ally.
In Surah al An-aam, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon
him) is commanded to ask the unbelievers:
         ‫ﻓﺎطﺮ اﻟﺴﻤﺎواتِ واﻷَرض وﻟِﯿً ّﺎ ﻗُﻞ أَﻏَ ﯿﺮ اﻟﻠﱠـﻪ أَﺗﱠﺨﺬ‬
         ُ ِ ِ         َ ْ     ْ          َ ِ ْ ْ َ   َ َ ‫ﱠ‬  ِ ِ َ
‘Say: ‘Shall I take for my guardian anyone other than Allah
– the Originator of the heavens and earth…..” (Surah al
An-aam 6: 14; Read the full verse here)
In the verse next to the ayatul kursi in Surah al Baqarah,
Allah says that He is the Waliyy of those who believe in
Him:




“Allah is the Helper and Protector of those who believe in
Him: He brings them out of the depths of darkness into
the light. As for the disbelievers, they have taghut as their
patron, who drives them out of light into the depths of
darkness. These are the people who are doomed to the
Fire, wherein they shall live for ever.” (Surah al Baqarah 2:
257)

                                                                     Page 7 of 12
www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
                           The Qur'an Blog




Allah, therefore, is Al Waliyy, the Protector, the Ally, the
Helper:



“He is the One Who sends down the rain after they despair
of it, spreading out His Mercy. He is the Protector, the
Immensely Praiseworthy” (Surah Ash-Shura: 42: 28; Also
read ayah 9 here)
‫ واﻟﻲ‬is another word that comes from the same root as of
Waliyy and Maula. It means ‘protector, guardian,
supporter, ally’.
Allah says ‫“ وﻣﺎ ﻟَﮫﻢ ﻣﻦ دوﻧِﻪ ﻣﻦ وال‬Apart from Him, they
           ٍ َ  ِ ِ ُ ِّ    ُ َ َ
have no protector” (Surah Ar-Ra’d 13: 11)
In Surah Aal Imran, in addition to the word ‘Waliyy’, an
interesting word - ‫ – أَوﻟَﻰ‬which means‘more entitled,
                      ْ
worthier, more deserving, more appropriate, more
suitable, more adequate – coming from the same root as
of Maula and Waliyy, is used in the context of one’s close
relationship with Prophet Ibraheem, Alaihis Salam:




“Surely the people who have the best claim to a
relationship with Ibraheem are those who followed him in
the past, and presently this Prophet (Muhammad) and
those who believe in him; Allah is the Guardian of the Men
of Faith” (Surah Aal Imran 3: 68)


                                                       Page 8 of 12
www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
                           The Qur'an Blog




They say blood is thicker than water. We say: Faith is
thicker than blood!
Back to Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer.
Allah is Maula for those who believe in Him and for the
unbelievers there is no Maula!



“That is because Allah is the Protector of the believers
whereas the unbelievers have none to protect
them” (Surah Muhammad 47: 11)
Ni’ma means ‘what a perfect……!, wonderful…..!, truly, an
excellent…..!
As discussed before, Maula means:
“to be near, be close, lie next, to adjoin, be adjacent, to
border, to be a friend, to back up, to take control, helper,
backer, guardian, benefactor, patron, companion, partner”.
Allah is Near and close to us. He is adjacent to us. He is
our Friend. Allah is our Back up. He is our Controller. He is
our Helper.
Allah is our Guardian, our Benefactor, our Patron, our
Companion, our Partner! Subhanallah!
Ni’mal Maula = What an Excellent Protector! What an
Excellent Companion! What a perfect Controller! What a
wonderful Companion!
Naseer almost carries the similar meaning: ‘helper,
supporter, defender, ally, protector’.

                                                       Page 9 of 12
www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
                          The Qur'an Blog




Ni’man Naseer = What an Excellent Defender! What a
perfect Helper! What a wonderful Supporter!
Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer = What an Excellent
Protector! What a perfect Helper!
The amazing thing is that the noun ‘Maula’ is mentioned
with all pronouns in the Qur’an:
‫ – ﻣﻮﻻه‬His Protector. Read ayah 4 of Surah At-
Tahreem here
‫ – ﻣﻮﻻھﻢ‬Their Protector. Read ayah 62 of Surah al An-
aam here
‫ – ﻣﻮﻻﻧﺎ‬Our Protector. Recall the last part of the famous
du’aa ‫ أَﻧﺖ ﻣﻮﻻﻧَﺎ ﻓﺎﻧﺼﺮﻧَﺎ ﻋﻠَﻰ اﻟﻘﻮم اﻟﻜﺎﻓِﺮﻳﻦ‬Read the
       َ ِ َ ْ ِ ْ َ ْ   َ ُْ َ        َْ َ َ
details here
‫ – ﻣﻮﻻﻛﻢ‬Your Protector. Read ayah 8 of Surah al Anfaal
and 78 of Surah al Hajj mentioned below.
The phrase/statement “Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man
Naseer” comes twice in the Qur’an.
1. Read this beautiful ayah of Surah al Anfaal wherein
Allah, Maulakum, Ni’mal Maula, Ni’man Naseer are
mentioned one after the other. What a flawless flow,
Subhanallah!



“But if they turn away, then know well that Allah is your
Protector – an excellent Protector and an excellent
Helper” (Surah al Anfaal 8: 40)

                                                      Page 10 of 12
www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
                           The Qur'an Blog




2. In this ayah of Surah al Hajj, the words Allah, Huwa,
Maulakum, FaNi’mal Maula, wa Ni’man Naseer are
amazingly presented in the Qur’an’s unique inimitable
style:




“And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has
chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion
any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham.
Allah named you “Muslims” before [in former scriptures]
and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a
witness over you and you may be witnesses over the
people. So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to
Allah. He is your protector; and excellent is the protector,
and excellent is the helper” (Surah al Hajj 22: 78)
Please underline and underscore the fact that in both the
places in the Qur’an wherein the phrase/statement Ni’mal
Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer is mentioned, it is preceded by
the command to perform Jihad.
That is to say: if you struggle in the way of Allah with all
your might, then know that Allah is not only
your infinite Protector, He alone is the Best to Protect,
He alone is the Best to Help. And what an Excellent
Protector He is! What an Excellent Helper Allah is!!
Let me conclude by quoting an amazing ayah wherein the
word Nasir is used instead of Naseer:
                                                       Page 11 of 12
www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com
                           The Qur'an Blog




“But Allah is your Protector, and He is the Best of
helpers”. (Surah Aal Imran 3: 150)
O Allah! help us to overcome all satanic temptations.
Aameen. O Allah! guide us unto the Straight Path.
Aameen. O Allah! Make us live as Muslims and take our
souls in the state of Imaan. You are our Protector. Save us
from the torment of the Hell-fire. Aameen.


A Request:
1. Please remember me in your du’aa.

Jazakallah Khayr.

Reflections on Hasbunallahu wa Ni'mal Wakeel, Ni'mal Maula wa Ni'man Naseer

  • 1. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog Reflections on ُ ِ َ ْ َ ْ َ ُ ‫ﺣﺴﺒﻨﺎ اﻟﻠﱠـﻪ وﻧِﻌﻢ اﻟﻮﻛﯿﻞ‬ َُ ْ َ Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel By Muqeet Mujtaba Ali Who doesn’t need help, care, protection and victory? Who doesn’t feel weak, over-powered by difficulties, stress and worries? In their quest for peace and tranquility, some affluent sections of society resort to sleeping pills, drugs and what not. Poor curse their miseries and desire that they become rich. They say grass appears greener on the other side! But strange is the way of a true Muslim! Here there is no question of the grass getting dry. His side of the grass is always greener. Subhaanallah! The roots of this amazing grass are strong and deep. They are being continuously fed with the waters of Imaan. Willing submission to the Master, the very Controller of all affairs, keeps the grass ever green. Don’t you find the presence of amazing dew drops on this amazing grass? Page 1 of 12
  • 2. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog The dew drops of Contentment, Hope, Trust, Willingness to submit to the decree of Almighty Lord? These dew drops in the life a Muslim contain miraculous elements to keep the grass greener even in the most harshest and cruelest of life’s climates! Read and reflect over this beautiful hadeeth: Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: When (Prophet) Ibraheem was thrown into the fire, he said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and, He is the Best Disposer of affairs.” So did Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam), when he was told: “A great army of the pagans had gathered against him, so fear them”. But this (warning) only increased him and the Muslims in Faith and they said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)”.[Al-Bukhari]. When Ibraheem alaihis salam was thrown in the fire by those who thought that they had power over all things, he made a supplication the effect of which made the world sit up and watch in amazement! Page 2 of 12
  • 3. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog Fire getting cool! It could not burn even a hair of Prophet Ibraheem, Peace be upon him! This is the effect of saying: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel! Allah (alone) is Sufficient for us, and what an Excellent Guardian He is! He is the Best Disposar of affairs! In a seemingly overpowering situation, Prophet Muhammad, sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, and his great companions declared that Allah is Sufficient for Help and Solace and that He is the Best Disposar of affairs for us! When people said to them: ‘Behold, a host has gathered around you and you should fear them’, it only increased their faith and they answered: ‘Allah is Sufficient for us; and what an excellent Guardian He is!’ (Surah aal Imran: 173) During the course of his Da’wah, when he encountered rejection from some people, Prophet Muhammad, sal-lal- laahu-alaihi-wasallam, was commanded by Allah to say: Hasbiyaallahu laa ilaaha illa huw, ‘alayhi tawakkaltu wa huwa rabbul ‘arshil adheem: Page 3 of 12
  • 4. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog Yet, if they should turn away, then tell them: “Allah is sufficient for me; there is no true god but He. In Him I have put my trust. He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.”(Surah Tawbah: 129) When his companions got scared of the coming of the Day of Judgement, Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi- wasallam instructed them to recite: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel. Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah 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 (the Prophet) perceived as if this had shocked his Companions, so he told them to seek comfort through reciting:‘Hasbunallah wa ni’mal-Wakeel [Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)]“. (For Arabic Text, read Hadeeth No. 409 here ) In the event of fear and anxiety one should seek the help of Allah and frequently recite this ayah of the glorious Qur’an “Hasbunallahu wa ni’mal Wakeel” Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).” (3:173). If you ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will surely answer: “Allah.” Tell them: “What do you think, then, of the deities whom you call upon Page 4 of 12
  • 5. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog instead of Allah? If Allah should will that an affliction befall me, will those deities remove the harm inflicted by Him? Or if Allah should will that I receive (His) Mercy, will they be able to withhold His Mercy from me?” Say: “Allah is sufficient for me; those who have to put their trust, let them put their trust in Him. (Surah Az Zumar: 38) Reciting Hasbunallahu Wa Nimal Wakeel provides the healing touch that is very much necessary in one’s life. By putting one’s complete Trust in Allah, by leaving matters unto Him, by seeking only His grace and mercy, by accepting His decree, by submitting to His Will – a Muslim can equip oneself to face the challenges of life. And this one single verse Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel is a source of all strength, all comfort! So let us make it a point to recite this morning and evening. Day and night. On and off. Once. Twice. A hundred times. As much as possible. Let me conclude by quoting two inspiring verses from the glorious Qur’an: He who fears Allah, He will find a way out for him, and will provide him sustenance from whence he never even imagined. Whoever puts his trust in Allah, He shall suffice him. Surely Allah brings about what He decrees; Allah has set a measure for everything.(Surah At-Talaaq: 2-3) May Allah give us the guidance to follow His path until our last breath. Aameen. Jazakallah Khayr. Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer…….. Page 5 of 12
  • 6. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog Reflections on ‫ﻧِﻌﻢ اﻟﻤﻮﻟَﻰ وﻧِﻌﻢ اﻟﻨﺼﯿﺮ‬ ُ ِ ‫ْ َ ْ َ ْ ٰ َ ْ َ ﱠ‬ Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer By Muqeet Mujtaba Ali Today (1st Muharram 1434), I would like to discuss on this very popular statement: Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer! T his statement is generally said immediately after yet another most inspiring statement: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel! Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel, Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer! These two phrases/statements are mentioned separately in different Surahs in the Qur’an. The meaning and the context of these two statements are so striking that we notice many among Muslims uttering and proclaiming them together. While it is not ‘a must’ to say them together, yet the miraculous beauty of the Qur’anic words weaves a tapestry in the canvas of one’s mind! Subhanallah! The word ‫( ﻣﻮﻟﻰ‬Maula) comes from the Arabic root ‫و ل ي‬ (w-l-y) which means: Page 6 of 12

From the same root comes the word ‫( وﻟﻲ‬waliyy) which means: near, adjacent, helper, supporter, benefactor, sponsor, friend, close associate, relative, patron, protector, ally. In Surah al An-aam, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is commanded to ask the unbelievers: ‫ﻓﺎطﺮ اﻟﺴﻤﺎواتِ واﻷَرض وﻟِﯿً ّﺎ ﻗُﻞ أَﻏَ ﯿﺮ اﻟﻠﱠـﻪ أَﺗﱠﺨﺬ‬ ُ ِ ِ َ ْ ْ َ ِ ْ ْ َ َ َ ‫ﱠ‬ ِ ِ َ ‘Say: ‘Shall I take for my guardian anyone other than Allah – the Originator of the heavens and earth…..” (Surah al An-aam 6: 14; Read the full verse here) In the verse next to the ayatul kursi in Surah al Baqarah, Allah says that He is the Waliyy of those who believe in Him: “Allah is the Helper and Protector of those who believe in Him: He brings them out of the depths of darkness into the light. As for the disbelievers, they have taghut as their patron, who drives them out of light into the depths of darkness. These are the people who are doomed to the Fire, wherein they shall live for ever.” (Surah al Baqarah 2: 257) Page 7 of 12
  • 8. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog Allah, therefore, is Al Waliyy, the Protector, the Ally, the Helper: “He is the One Who sends down the rain after they despair of it, spreading out His Mercy. He is the Protector, the Immensely Praiseworthy” (Surah Ash-Shura: 42: 28; Also read ayah 9 here) ‫ واﻟﻲ‬is another word that comes from the same root as of Waliyy and Maula. It means ‘protector, guardian, supporter, ally’. Allah says ‫“ وﻣﺎ ﻟَﮫﻢ ﻣﻦ دوﻧِﻪ ﻣﻦ وال‬Apart from Him, they ٍ َ ِ ِ ُ ِّ ُ َ َ have no protector” (Surah Ar-Ra’d 13: 11) In Surah Aal Imran, in addition to the word ‘Waliyy’, an interesting word - ‫ – أَوﻟَﻰ‬which means‘more entitled, ْ worthier, more deserving, more appropriate, more suitable, more adequate – coming from the same root as of Maula and Waliyy, is used in the context of one’s close relationship with Prophet Ibraheem, Alaihis Salam: “Surely the people who have the best claim to a relationship with Ibraheem are those who followed him in the past, and presently this Prophet (Muhammad) and those who believe in him; Allah is the Guardian of the Men of Faith” (Surah Aal Imran 3: 68) Page 8 of 12
  • 9. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog They say blood is thicker than water. We say: Faith is thicker than blood! Back to Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer. Allah is Maula for those who believe in Him and for the unbelievers there is no Maula! “That is because Allah is the Protector of the believers whereas the unbelievers have none to protect them” (Surah Muhammad 47: 11) Ni’ma means ‘what a perfect……!, wonderful…..!, truly, an excellent…..! As discussed before, Maula means: “to be near, be close, lie next, to adjoin, be adjacent, to border, to be a friend, to back up, to take control, helper, backer, guardian, benefactor, patron, companion, partner”. Allah is Near and close to us. He is adjacent to us. He is our Friend. Allah is our Back up. He is our Controller. He is our Helper. Allah is our Guardian, our Benefactor, our Patron, our Companion, our Partner! Subhanallah! Ni’mal Maula = What an Excellent Protector! What an Excellent Companion! What a perfect Controller! What a wonderful Companion! Naseer almost carries the similar meaning: ‘helper, supporter, defender, ally, protector’. Page 9 of 12
  • 10. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog Ni’man Naseer = What an Excellent Defender! What a perfect Helper! What a wonderful Supporter! Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer = What an Excellent Protector! What a perfect Helper! The amazing thing is that the noun ‘Maula’ is mentioned with all pronouns in the Qur’an: ‫ – ﻣﻮﻻه‬His Protector. Read ayah 4 of Surah At- Tahreem here ‫ – ﻣﻮﻻھﻢ‬Their Protector. Read ayah 62 of Surah al An- aam here ‫ – ﻣﻮﻻﻧﺎ‬Our Protector. Recall the last part of the famous du’aa ‫ أَﻧﺖ ﻣﻮﻻﻧَﺎ ﻓﺎﻧﺼﺮﻧَﺎ ﻋﻠَﻰ اﻟﻘﻮم اﻟﻜﺎﻓِﺮﻳﻦ‬Read the َ ِ َ ْ ِ ْ َ ْ َ ُْ َ َْ َ َ details here ‫ – ﻣﻮﻻﻛﻢ‬Your Protector. Read ayah 8 of Surah al Anfaal and 78 of Surah al Hajj mentioned below. The phrase/statement “Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer” comes twice in the Qur’an. 1. Read this beautiful ayah of Surah al Anfaal wherein Allah, Maulakum, Ni’mal Maula, Ni’man Naseer are mentioned one after the other. What a flawless flow, Subhanallah! “But if they turn away, then know well that Allah is your Protector – an excellent Protector and an excellent Helper” (Surah al Anfaal 8: 40) Page 10 of 12
  • 11. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.com The Qur'an Blog 2. In this ayah of Surah al Hajj, the words Allah, Huwa, Maulakum, FaNi’mal Maula, wa Ni’man Naseer are amazingly presented in the Qur’an’s unique inimitable style: “And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you “Muslims” before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to Allah. He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper” (Surah al Hajj 22: 78) Please underline and underscore the fact that in both the places in the Qur’an wherein the phrase/statement Ni’mal Maula Wa Ni’man Naseer is mentioned, it is preceded by the command to perform Jihad. That is to say: if you struggle in the way of Allah with all your might, then know that Allah is not only your infinite Protector, He alone is the Best to Protect, He alone is the Best to Help. And what an Excellent Protector He is! What an Excellent Helper Allah is!! Let me conclude by quoting an amazing ayah wherein the word Nasir is used instead of Naseer: Page 11 of 12
