AS-SAMAD-The Eternal, Satisfier of Needs The Supreme Provider

The One who is eternal, unaffected and unchanged. He is the One who can satisfy each need in a way He knows is best, while He is without any needs. He is the One upon who all of the creation depends, while He depends on no one. The Independent, The Master who is relied upon in matters and reverted to in ones needs.
Allah, Exalted be He, says, “Allah, the Eternal (As-Samad).” (Surat Al-Ikhlaas, 112: 2)
This name has a number of meanings. It means, among other things, the Master whose sovereignty is complete and perfect, the Most Wise whose wisdom is complete and perfect, the Most Merciful whose mercy is complete and perfect, and the Most Generous whose generosity is complete and perfect. All His creatures turn to Him for their needs, and all hearts turn to Him fearfully and eagerly.

Benefits of belief in this name include the following:

Establishing the Oneness of Allah and recognizing that Allah is the Eternal. This attribute requires that He has no father, no son and no equal. This serves to refute the false claims of polytheists and the People of the Book (Jews and Christians).
Loving Allah, to whom all creatures turn to have their needs fulfilled. This requires that He alone should be worshipped and that shirk (associating others with Him) and those who commit this sin should be rejected.
Relying on Him alone and entrusting all our affairs to Him, being assured that He is sufficient for us.
Extolling, praising and venerating Allah, Exalted be He, fearing none but Him, having hope in His mercy, doing whatever causes His good pleasure and leaving whatever causes His displeasure.
Calling upon Him by this great name and seeking to draw closer to Him by using it, for this name, in addition to the names that are associated with it, comprises the Greatest Name of Allah. Whoever asks Allah by this name will have his supplication answered and his request granted.

The One who is eternal and above whom there is none. The One who is unaffected, unchanged, and without any needs.

The One who is besought by all, and who is above all. The One who can satisfy every need and without whom no affair could be accomplished.

The One who satisfies every need as it should be satisfied, and not necessarily as mankind might imagine.

The One who is the sole recourse, the only one to turn to. The One upon whom all depend, yet who does not depend on any.
