Over the years I have always heard others say ‘trust in Allah’. Though I always knew it in theory I never really knew it is my heart. I have recently come to know the true meaning of this statement. It is not something that is to be said non-chalantly with a laxidasical attitude. O, trust in Allah and then poof…no matter what you do…all is good in this world and the streets are lined with gold. No, that is not it at all. Trust in Allah is far more than that. It means that you trust in Him with your entire being. Your mind, your heart, your body, your soul. When a thought comes into your head, you push it aside and make dhikr. Allah(swt) tells us in several places through out the Qur’an, remember Me. The word remember is written as dhikr in arabic. Rememberence. Call on Him, no matter what for whatever. Why is this so hard for us as human beings to do? Yes, we say we trust in Allah…but do we really and truely? We worry about things until we m
ake oursevles sick. There IS nothing we, alone, can do. Only through trusting in Allah(swt) can we acheive all things. No matter how bad things seem, trust in Allah(swt) and know that as long as you are doing what He commands you to do (worship Him) then He will see you through. He will provide for you. He will keep His promise. We often forget after we say trust in Allah to say alhamduillah. Yes, He tests us. He tests us because He loves us and wants for us to enter Jennah. And being the sinners we are, maybe these tests are way for Him to cleanse us of our sins. It is His way of saying, wake up…do what I tell you and I will provide for you! So, no matter what happens to you or how depressed you are or how bad things seem…trust in Allah(swt) and no that He will carry you through IF you truely trust in Him and do as He commands…. Fi iman Allah!
