Trust in Allah

A rich man is not rich because of his intelligence or his abilities or because he is well skilled but the one and only reason he is rich is because Allaah has Decreed and Determined that this person will be given such and such amount of wealth in the life of this world so that Allaah can test this person and see whether the person is grateful for the favors he has received from Allaah or does the person attribute the abundance of his riches to himself, his abilities, or to anything other than Allaah Subhanau Taa’la.

Similarly, a poor man is not poor because of his lack of intelligence, or lack of abilities but the one and only reason the person is poor is because Allaah Subhanau Taa’la has Decreed and Determined that this person will be given sustenance only in strict measure in the life of this world so that Allaah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala can test this person and see whether the person is grateful for the favors he has received

 from Allaah and whether he is patient in his poverty and destitute by keeping his hopes only in the Power and Strength of Allaah alone or whether the person does unlawful things and steals and lies to increase his wealth, or seeks help from the self-invented false gods and deities whom he invokes to remove his poverty.

Allaah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says,

“To Him belong the keys (of the treasures) of the heavens and the earth: He enlarges and restricts the Sustenance to whom He Wills: for He knows full well all things.”

[Qur’aan 42:12]

“Allaah enlarges the sustenance (which He gives) to whichever of His servants He pleases; and He (similarly) grants by (strict) measure (as He pleases): for Allah has full knowledge of all things.”

[Qur’aan 29:62]

“Allah does enlarge or grant by (strict) measure the Sustenance (which He gives) to whom so He pleases. (The worldly) rejoice in the life of this world: but the life of this world is but little comfort in the Hereafter.”

[Qur’aan 13:26]
