The Self-Sufficient, The Wealthy, The Independent One

The One who is self-sufficient. The One without need of anything. The One who transcends all needs.

The One who is completely satisfied. The One who is free from any wants. The One who is free from any dependence.

 The One who flourishes without help or aid of any sort, yet who is needed by all. The One upon whose wealth and riches all others depend.

From the root gh-n-y which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to be free from wants or needs
to be self-sufficient, independent
to be able to do without help from others
to be content, satisfied
to be rich, wealthy, flourishing

This name is used in the Qur'ān. For example, see 6:133

Ghanī denotes the One whose essential nature is independence, self-sufficiency and supreme wealth.

Mughnī is from this same gh-n-y root and denotes specific deeds done by the One in bestowing wealth.

(Also written as al-ghaniy, al-ghani, al-ghanee, al-ghanii, the Self-Sufficient, ya ghaniy, ya ghani, ya ghanee, ya ghanii)
