Ascribing power and ability

You should know that the most comprehensive and inclusive formula for expressing the repudiation of one’s own claim to power and ability is La hawla wa-la quwwata illa bi’Llah ( ‘there is neither power nor ability save by God’).

(Gifts for the Seeker, Imam `Abdallah ibn `Alawi al-Haddad)
