Meaning: He is the creator, the owner and disposer of all affairs who bestows His blessings upon His creatures and looks after His righteous servants by setting their hearts aright.

However, when used to refer to other than Allah, it is always used in the genitive case, to mean ‘the owner or proprietor of something’, such as rabb al-‘usrah; that is, the head of the family.
