The One who creates all means of nourishment and subsistence. The One who is the giver of all things beneficial, both physical and spiritual. The One who provides everything that is needed.
The One who causes the means of subsistence to come. The One who bestows all means of support and growth, for the body, the mind and the spiritual life.
From the root r-z-q which has the following classical Arabic connotations:
to receive something beneficial, especially as a gift
to be provided with the necessities of life
to receive a portion, share or lot
to be supplied with a means of subsistence
This name is used in the Qur’ān. For example, see 51:58
The root r-z-q points to the idea of the receiving of anything beneficial, particularly a gift, whereby something is nourished, sustained, or helped to grow physically, mentally or spiritually.
This name is an attribute of Allah. All actions that lead to support are under the direction of the Real King, the Lord and Creator of all creation, and at His will and pleasure. As a sign of our gratitude for His beneficence and blessings showered on us, we must feed the hungry and help the needy.
He who recites this name will be provided with sustenance by Allah.
Ar-Razzaq is the One Who offers provision and gives all of His creatures their provision. He is the Provider of everything that needs anything; the Preserver of life. There is no other provider, and do not expect your provision form other than Him, and do not abase yourself to other than Him.
If a person who truly believes that our sustenance comes from Allah finds that his household is in need, he may, after morning prayers, recite ya Razzaq 10 times at the four corners of his house, starting from the corner in the direction of the qiblah. Allah may increase the sustenance of his family.
People who have this name written out and hanging in their workplace may be more successful. To recite Ya Razzaqu 100 times after Friday communal prayers may help people who are stressed and depressed.
Benefits of Reading : Anyone who blows in all four corners of his house after saying Ya Razzaqu 10 times in each corner before Fajr, Allah will open him his door of rizq (Sustenance). Sickness and Poverty will never enter in his home. (Note: Begin from the right hand corner while facing Qibla).
