63 - الْوَاجِدُ

Recommended Posts




الْوَاجِدُ is translated as The Finder and The Resourceful. It comes from Wujd and is also translated as The One Who lacks nothing. It is not found in all the Asmaaul Husnaa books and there is not much commentary on this name. 


وَاجِد  is a person who gets what he wants but this implies he did not have it and now he got it and this cannot be said about Allah ta’ala. When it is used for Allah ta’ala it means The One Who is Resourceful and lacks nothing. 


In the Qur'an, the verb وَجَدَ is translated as to find and that is why it is translated as The Finder. 



In the Qur’an

In Surah Dhuhaa (verse 7-8), 
وَوَجَدَكَ ضَالًّا فَهَدَىٰ – Did He not find you lost and gave you guidance?

وَوَجَدَكَ عَائِلًا فَأَغْنَىٰ - Did He not find you poor and made you self-sufficient?


For us, Allah ta’ala is The Most Resourceful so when we need to ask, ask from Allah ta’ala.
