Tawakkul is more than saying, ‘I rely on
Allāh ﷻ’.
It is to put your newborn son inside a basket and let it float into the darkness of the ocean.
It is to place a slaughter knife at your son’s throat and not flinch for a blink of an eye.
It is to migrate from your homeland into an unknown future while your enemies are but a few footsteps away plotting your murder.
It is to be stuck inside the belly of a whale but still utter only that which pleases Allāh ﷻ.
It is to be thrown into a well by your own brothers, into fire by your own father—but still find Allāh ﷻ sufficient for you.
It is to watch your son’s arrogance drown him, to lose all your wealth, health and children but still find your heart content despite the losses.
It is to know that people are hunting you down to crucify you and yet, know that Allāh ﷻ is your Wakīl and that He ﷻ will protect and save you.
It is to fight all odds despite crumbling to the ground out of weakness because Allāh ﷻ is the source of your strength.
It is having the unwavering conviction that every single second of your life has been decreed by Allāh.
Have the right kind of tawakkul and don’t lose hope in Him ﷻ. And remember—a story written by the Best of Writers could never have a hopeless ending.
