The Reckoner, The Accountant, The Sufficient

The One who takes account of all actions and reckons them. The One who is the measurer and accountant of every deed.

The One who is sufficient to meet all needs. The One who gives what is sufficient and necessary in every situation.

From the root h-s-b which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to reckon, number, count, calculate, compute, think
to give without sparing or scanting
to give without the receiver's expectation
to suffice, to be sufficient, or without measure

This name is used in the Qur'ān. For example, see 4:86

(Also written as al-hasib, al-haseeb, al-hasiib, the Reckoner: ya hasib, ya haseeb, ya hasiib)
