Allah calls Himself Al-Haseeb— The Reckoner, The Accountant, The Sufficient— on three occasions in the Quran. He’s the one who keeps account of everything in the worlds and requites even the smallest of deeds. Al-Haseeb is The Sufficient; in general because He takes care of all His slaves, giving them benefits and warding off harm. Al-Haseeb takes extra special care of those of His pious slaves who put their trust in Him, giving them support and victory!
Explanation of the Name, Al-Kareem, from Ahadun Ahad:
Excerpt: The One Who is All-Knowing of His servants and sufficient for those who put their trust in Him. The One Who recompenses His servants with either good or bad in accordance to His Wisdom and His Knowledge of the minutest and greatest of their actions. The One who will take account of all people’s deeds, and who will reward or punish them accordingly. Al-Qurtubi points out that this is a warning in particular to those who deny Allah: ultimately they will answer to Him for their deeds.
The One Who is enough to dispose all affairs, for He has created everything in due measure and in exact proportions. He is the Creator of the means which produce sufficiency —He is the One Who is enough for the new born because He is the Creator of its mother. Enough is He as a witness, and Enough is He for those who depend upon Him and put their trust in Him. He is All Aware, All Knowing and All Acquainted. He is a careful Account-taker of all things and the Swiftest in calling to account –Sufficient is He for the Reckoning.
Explanation of the Name, Al-Haseeb, from Sheikh as-Sa’di:
The One Who is All-Knowing of His servants and sufficient for those who put their trust in Him. The One Who recompenses His servants with either good or bad based upon His Wisdom and His Knowledge of finest details of their actions.

Explanation of Al-Haseeb from Islam Q & A:
Al-Haseeb is the One who is Sufficient. He is Sufficient for those who put their trust in Him, and He is Sufficient and does not need witnesses.
“Certainly, Allaah is Ever a Careful Account Taker of all things”
[al-Nisaa’ 4:86 – interpretation of the meaning]
It may also be interpreted as al-Hafeez (the Preserver), i.e., He keeps records of all actions, then He will requite them. Allaah is the Bringer to Account of His slaves, i.e., He will bring them to account for their deeds and will requite them for them according to His Wisdom and knowledge of the smallest and greatest of their actions. So they will be brought to account for good and evil, down the minutest detail.
Correct pronunciation of the Name, Al-Haseeb:
Duaa using the Name, Al-Haseeb + How to apply this duaa to our lives:
Dua when encountering an enemy or when fearing those in authority #3:
“Allah is sufficient for us, and how fine a trustee (He is).”
“Hasbun-allaahu wa ni‛mal-wakeel.”
A Dhikr to Face Life’s Challenge from Understand Quran Academy:
Allah Al-Haseeb, The Reckoner, mentions this dhikr in one of the most powerful and important ayaat of the Quran: Those to whom hypocrites said, “Indeed, the people have gathered against you, so fear them.” But it [merely] increased them in faith, and they said, “Sufficient for us is Allah and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs.” [Quran, 3:173]
What is hasaba? Hasaba in Arabic means reckoning, counting, and calculating. It also means to suffice and to be sufficient and it repeats 109 times in the Quran. What does ‘hasaba’ have to do with your belief in the Last Day? The Day of Judgement is also called: Yawm-ul Hisbaab, the Day of Account and the dhikr we learn today is straight related to this dreadful day and to any hardship you face in life! …more.
