AL-QABID – THE WITHHOLDER

Al-Qabid – The Withholder

The One Who takes the provisions and souls, the One Who gives provisions freely and gives (life to) the hearts – all of this in compliance to His Wisdom and Mercy. The One whose wisdom causes withholding, either physically or spiritually. The One whose wisdom decides when to withhold something, or make something scarce.

"Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned." (Quran, 2:245)
