Imam at-Thawri (R): On ‘Laa Hawla wala Quwatta illa Billaah’

Imam Sufyaan ath-Thawri (R) once asked some of his students:

“Do you know what the meaning of Laa Hawla wala Quwatta illa Billaah is (which translates into English as: ‘There is neither power nor might except with Allaah‘)?”

He then said, “It means:

(O Allaah) none can give except what You have given, and none can preserve anything other than what You preserve.”
