The Provider, The Supplier
Razzaaq comes from the root raa-zaa-qaa and points to three main meanings. The first main meaning is to receive something beneficial or to receive a portion or share. The second main meaning is to be provided or supplied with the necessities of life.
This root appears 123 times in the Quran in four derived forms. Examples of these forms are razaqnaakum (“we provided you”) and al-rizqa (“the provision).
Linguistically, Razzaaq has the structure of intensification, indicating a complete way of providing and sustaining. Ar-Razzaaq bestows all means of support and growth, both for the body and soul.
Ar-Razzaaq Himself says: Indeed, it is Allah who is the [continual] Provider, the firm possessor of strength. [Quran, 51:58]
What is rizq?
Rizq (provision) is what benefits you and it includes not just money but also knowledge, good manners, security, peace of mind, and spiritual enhancement. Allah Ar-Razzaaq created your rizq, and He delivers it to you in the way He wants: And there is no creature on earth but that upon Allah is its provision [rizq], and He knows its place of dwelling and place of storage. All is in a clear register. [Quran, 11:6]
The test of rizq
Ar-Razzaaq told us that if we don’t rule with justice, there will be corruption on earth. These days resources are overused, people are abused, and wealth is not being distributed justly. People ask: why is there poverty? Why are people starving? Our actions have consequences. We human beings created a system that went against the way Allah the All Wise instructed us to live. Wealth can be a trial and poverty a reason for elevation in the Hereafter; these are the ways of Ar-Razzaaq.
