Al-Wakeel, Al-Kafeel

Topic Progress:

Meaning: Al-Wakeel is the One who disposes of the affairs of all His creatures, the One who
provides for them, grants their requests and fulfils their needs. He assists and protects those
who seek His refuge, takes charge of His righteous servants’ affairs by guiding them to all that
is easy, keeping them away from all that causes them hardship and assists them in everything.
Al-Kafeel means the witness, the guardian, the protector and the guarantor.

Occurrence: Al-Wakeel: 14 times; Al-Kafeel: once.

Evidence: “Enough is Allah as a disposer of affairs.” (Surat An-Nisaa’, 4:81); “…you have made Allah
your guarantor.” (Surat An-Nahl, 16:91)
