 {وَأُفَوِّضُ أَمْرِي إِلَى اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَصِيرٌ بِالْعِبَادِ} [غافر44]

(Interpretation of the Meaning): "And I entrust my affair to Allah . Indeed, Allah is Seeing of [His] servants."

[Surat Ghafir, Verse 44]

 

One of the unforgettable moments  that brings back with it beautiful memories from the past was in tajweed classes. Those classes were the recharge of our imaan and still is. 

Our teacher, may Allah the Almighty reward her regularly, gave us enlightenments of a verse before class ended, that day it was Verse 44  in Surat Ghafir  

And for us to grasp the great importance of tawkul, she began to tell us a story of a student of knowledge who never forgot to put her trust in Allah the Almighty in almost everything.

 

She lived in a village that took her two hours travel by bus to reach the centre where she gained knowledge. One day she missed the bus and the next bus was due in two hours, which meant her class will be over by the time she gets there. She also didn't have enough cash to take other means of transport only the cost of a bus . 

 

Seeing that she missed her opportunity for the day, as the class was the air she breathed in relating to the most honored knowledge on earth (the Holy Qur'an), she didn't give up . She stood there thinking for a solution , Suddenly remembered the verse in Surat Ghafir:

 

 {وَأُفَوِّضُ أَمْرِي إِلَى اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَصِيرٌ بِالْعِبَادِ} [غافر44]

(Interpretation of the Meaning): "And I entrust my affair to Allah . Indeed, Allah is Seeing of [His] servants."

[Surat Ghafir, Verse 44]

 

And she recited it with conviction that Allah will accept her duaa and relied upon him. 

What she didn't know was that Allah the Almighty had answered her duaa straight away and another bus arrived as she finished reciting the verse, which was out of norm for it to arrive only minutes after the first one left.

 

This indeed shows us that who ever truly entrusted Allah with all his affairs, Allah is surely with him. 

For some it might sound missing a bus is not a big deal, but for this sister it demonstrated a different phase of tawkul, where we obtain a lesson in this life. 

 

No matter what hardships you are going through small or big, trust in Allah and call upon his help with your heart only relying on him. And await for his answer. It has been said: 

"The more you trust Allah, the more he amazes you"
