This is from Root "ع و ن". The basic perception infolded in the Root is to seek assistance in the desire of striking balance and equation to gain firmness and stability; a state which neither suffers from the "heat" of the youth nor weakness of aging. It is in between the two quite stable and tranquil state of sobriety.

In almost all the English translations the words stemming from Root "ع و ن" and Root: ن ص ر are translated by word "help, aid, succor". Since Root: ن ص رis not used we should avoid translating it by "help". While word "help" is most generic term and can refer to any sort of support, "to assist" is an help for something that someone could do themselves but because of the assistance is able to do that thing more efficiently, profitably, effectively, etc. Seeking support is to back up us in every step of the way. We can grow by receiving support and this growth should be part of the goal. We live in environment where there are enemies, Satan and satanic people, who can create hindrances in our personality growth. Therefore, we request the Almighty to persistently render the environment that supports and assists us in the process of elevating ourselves to achieve the goal.
