Alhamdulillah I came across this excellent article and wanted to share it. It talks about reliance upon Allah. I especially loved this quote.
Ibn Ata’illah stated: “Relieve yourself of worry after you have planned, do not concern yourself with what Allah has undertaken on your behalf”.
Indeed this is not easy to attain to. But the one with real faith knows its a cinch!
وَنُيَسِّرُكَ لِلْيُسْرَىٰ And We will make it easy for thee (to follow) the simple (Path). (Quran 87:8)
What makes it hard I think is not knowing Allah well enough to trust Him completely. And that is easily fixed by spending more time with Him, i.e., with taqwa (God consciousness) and then Allah grows nearer and nearer. We are truly blessed to have in our tradition, the certainty from God that ‘He loves to be asked’ and ‘loves to be called upon’. Subhahanallah! Key word – LOVES to be asked. Allah subhahana wa’ta’ala what a great source of help just waiting to be asked.
I must go now, the article is here. Well worth the read mashaAllah. Taken from Imam Suhaib Webb’s site http://www.suhaibwebb.com/personaldvlpt/worship/dua/tawakkul-trust-in-allah/
I’ll add a favourite song along these lines. Powerful lyrics – ‘I only ask of God’
Assaalamu alaikum warahamtullah, I pray you are all well and safe, and Allah have mercy upon us all and help us all help each other in these testing times.
