Explanation of Al-Qayyoom + How to Apply it to Our Lives from Understand Quran Academy:

Excerpt:

Allah calls Himself Al-Qayyoom— The Sustainer, The Self-Subsisting— on three occasions in the Quran. Al-Qayyoom is the One who is self-existing while every being exists through Him and because of Him. He is completely free of any dependence on anything else, while the whole creation depends entirely on Him!

The Self-Existing, The All-Sustaining

Qayyoom comes from the root qaaf-waw-meem, which points to five main meanings. The first meaning is to stand or to rise up. The second main meaning is to be or begin, the third to be ongoing and to exist. The fourth main meaning is to be founded or to be built on and the fifth is to manage and to make right.

This root appears 660 times in the Quran in 22 derived forms. Examples of these forms areqaamoo (“they stand”), aqeemoo (“establish”), istaqaamoo (“remain firm”), al qawma (” the people”) and al qiyaamah (“the Resurrection”).

Al-Qayyoom comes always in combination with the beautiful name Al-Hayy in the Quran, with Al-Hayy referring to the attribute of everlasting life and Al-Qayyoom signifying the attribute of self-existing life. Al-Qayyoom is the One who established Himself on His own and is the foundation upon which all things exist. He is the One who sustains and manages the complete creation and at the same time is without any need of any type of sustenance Himself!

Al-Qayyoom Himself says: . . . Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence [Quran,2:255] And [all] faces will be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence. And he will have failed who carries injustice [Quran, 20:111]

…more.

The Caretaker who manages and regulates His creation. The Persistent, Everlasting One who does not change or end. The One who is Self-Subsisting, and by Whom all things subsist.

Explanation of Al-Hayy from the book, “Who is Allah?“:

Excerpt:

Verses from the Qur’an:

{Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence…} (Qur’an 2:255) {And [all] faces will be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence. And he will have failed who carries injustice.} (Qur’an 20:111)

 

Tafseer

Allah (the Exalted) is He Who sustains everyone and everything. All of creation is in need of Allah (the Exalted) and reliant upon Him, while He is in need of nothing from His creation. He maintains everything of the creation and determines the affairs of everything. He preserves His creation, and He is absolutely perfect in His self.

 

Application

Knowing that Allah (the Exalted) is the Sustainer of all Existence gives succour to His servants. Their hearts turn to Allah (the Exalted) with full trust and adoration in the knowledge of this attribute. With this knowledge, the spirit is uplifted and comforted, knowing that Allah (the Exalted) sustains and protects all that exists.
