AL-KĀFĪ (الكافي) The All-Sufficient

Linguistically, KAFI refers to the one possessing the attribute of sufficiency. AL-KAFI is the One who is all sufficient and the One who suffices His believing and devoted servants in everything. He suffices each and every need with great ease whoever and whenever He pleases. Real wealth is self-contentment. The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Be satisfied with what Allah has apportioned for you and you will be the richest of people.” [Tirmidhi]


  • Is Allah not sufficient for His servant? Yet they try to scare you with others apart from Him. If Allah misguides someone, he has no guide. [Az-Zumar 39:36]
  • Indeed, We are sufficient for you against the mockers. [Al-Hijr 15:95]
