“And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him.” [65:3]
This is one of my favorite verses in the Quran. And I believe that in our present situation it has become even more important. Rely upon Allah and He will be sufficient for you.
Relying upon Allah has one prerequisite: that we do what is in our capacity and strive with the effort that we are able and THEN to leave the rest to Allah.
Just as we look both ways before we cross the street, we must also take every precaution that we are able, within reason and as advised by those closest to us, and then leave the rest to Allah.
For there are two types of situations in our lives: those over which we have control and those over which we have NO control. The first type we have some say in along with trust in Allah. The second type we must depend solely on Allah – knowing that whatever happens is what is best for us and is only preparing us for what is yet to come.
