Al Samad – The Eternal – Absolute

The One who is eternal and above whom there is none. The One who is unaffected, unchanged, and without any needs.
“He is Allah, the One. Allah, THE ETERNALLY BESOUGHT OF ALL. He begotten not nor was begot- ten. And there is non comparable unto him.”
(112:1-4) The Holy Quran
From the root
s-m-d with the
classical Arabic
connotations:
to endeavor
to reach or
attain something
to turn to,
to need
to direct oneself
toward or aim
toward something
to set up.

Allah is eternal and above whom there is none. He is unaffected, unchanged, and without any needs.
He is besought by all, and who is above all. He can satisfy every need and without whom no affair could be accomplished.
He satisfies every need as it should be satisfied, and not necessarily as mankind might imagine.
He is the sole recourse, the only one to turn to. Upon whom all depend, yet He does not depend on any.

Al Samad is the one to whom one turns in respect of (one’s) needs
and the one to whom one goes in respect of (one’s) desires, since
the ultimate degree of sovereignty is his”. Ghazali
