Al Qayyum – The Self-Subsisting

He who is the omnipotent, ominscient, creator and sustainer of all things. He sustains the existence of everything and is Himself not sustained or supported by anybody.
β€œHe knows what (appears to His creatures as) be- fore or after or behind them: but they shall not compass it with their knowledge. (All) faces shall be humbled before (Him), the Living THE SELF-SUBSISTING, Eter- nal: hopeless indeed will be the man that carries iniquity (on his back). But he who works deeds of righteousness, and has Faith, will have no fear of harm nor of any cur- tailment (of what is his due).”
