AL-MUDABBIR (المدبر) The Arranger of Affairs

AL-MUDABBIR is the One who manages and controls all of creation with order and balance, regardless of time or place. The perfect order of the universe proves the existence of a power that is beyond any other power. All man’s affairs belong to Him alone and He is not in need of anyone to help Him manage the affairs of the universe. He is the sole ruler of everything – Allah keeps a firm hold on the heavens and earth, preventing them from vanishing. And if they vanished, no one could then keep hold of them. Certainly He is Lenient, Ever-Forgiving. [Fatir 35:41]. This name is conveyed from the verb YUBABBIR (يُدَبِّرُ) meaning “to arrange, to dispose.”


  • Indeed, your Lord is Allah, who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne, arranging the matter [of His creation]…. [Yunus 10:3]
  • Say, “Who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Or who controls hearing and sight and who brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living and who arranges [every] matter?” They will say, “Allah,” so say, “Then will you not fear Him?” [Yunus 10:31]
  • It is Allah who erected the heavens without pillars that you [can] see; then He established Himself above the Throne and made subject the sun and the moon, each running [its course] for a specified term. He arranges each matter…. [Ar-Ra’d 13:2]
  • He arranges [each] matter from the heaven to the earth; then it will ascend to Him in a Day, the extent of which is a thousand years of those which you count. [As-Sajdah 32:5]
