Sura 17
Aya 30
إِنَّ رَبَّكَ يَبسُطُ الرِّزقَ لِمَن يَشاءُ وَيَقدِرُ ۚ إِنَّهُ كانَ بِعِبادِهِ خَبيرًا بَصيرًا

Yusuf Ali

Verily thy Lord doth provide sustenance in abundance for whom He pleaseth, and He provideth in a just measure,1 for He doth know and regard all His servants.
  • If a foolish spendthrift pretends that his generosity, even if it ruins himself, is good for other people, he is reminded that God will take care of all. He knows every one’s true needs and cares for them. He gives in abundance to some, but in all cases He gives in just measure. Who are we to pretend to greater generosity! (R).
