Looking back at my life, I can pinpoint so many moments where I wanted something and Allah gave me something else. I remember making so much du’aa for certain things, believing that they were exactly what I needed at the time.
And yet He knew what I needed better than I did. And had He granted me what I wanted… I don’t even want to begin to imagine how different my life would be right now.
There was a time I believed that having Tawakkul and putting my trust in Allah meant trusting that He would grant me what I wanted and make my dreams come true… And yet, I was wrong.
When you trust in Allah fully, you are extending your belief in the unknown, replacing worry and anxiety with reliance and resolution, and essentially recognising the greatness of your Maker above and beyond everything else.
