Linguistically, ghina, the root word of “al-Ghaniyy“, means: independence by virtue of having self-sufficiency. It is the opposite of faqr which is poverty or need. Independence or self-sufficiency is of various types- one is the absence of need, and none is independent of needing anyone or anything other than Allah. This meaning is implied in aya 64 of Suratul Hajj “His is whatever in the heavens and in the earth, and most surely Allah is the self-Sufficient, the Praised”. Al-Ghaniyy has no need, needs none while everything and everyone need Him.  Everyone else besides Allah is needy.

To apply Al-Ghaniyy in our lives we need to understand what is being rich (ghaniyy)? The Prophet (pbuh) has said: “Wealth is not abundance of availability; rather, it is the richness of one’s own nafs.”


Repeat Ya Ghani frequently for contentment. Recite 70x daily for abundance in rizq. Recite and blow over body for shifaa from illness.
