Today Insha'Allah I will share with you a story from prophet Hud Alyhi Assalam.

Because prophet Hud believed in Allah (S.W.T) that left a powerful impact on this prophet and the way he dealt with his people, he came to them with the message of Islam and called them to worship Allah (S.W.T) alone, but they resisted him and ultimately they wanted to kill him and destroy the people who joined him in belief. But what was the response of this prophet? Was he scared of these people? The reality is totally different, he said to them as Allah reports in the chapter of Hud which is named after the prophet Hud (prayers and peace of Allah be upon him) himself: {He said: I call Allah to witness and bear you witness that I am free from that which you ascribe as partners in worship, (54) With Him (Allah). So plot against me, all of you, and give me no respite. (55) I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving (living) creature but He has grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the Straight Path (the truth).} [Hud 10:54-56]
{قَالَ إِنِّي أُشْهِدُ اللَّـهَ وَاشْهَدُوا أَنِّي بَرِيءٌ مِّمَّا تُشْرِكُونَ ﴿٥٤﴾ مِن دُونِهِ ۖ فَكِيدُونِي جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ لَا تُنظِرُونِ ﴿٥٥﴾ إِنِّي تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّـهِ رَبِّي وَرَبِّكُم ۚ مَّا مِن دَابَّةٍ إِلَّا هُوَ آخِذٌ بِنَاصِيَتِهَا ۚ إِنَّ رَبِّي عَلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ} هود: 54-56
Transliteration: innee oshhidu Allaha waishhadoo annee bareeon mimmatushrikoona (54) Min doonihi fakeedoonee jameeAAan thumma la tunthirooni (55) Innee tawakkaltu AAala Allahi rabbee warabbikum ma min dabbatin illa huwa akhithun binasiyatiha inna rabbee AAala siratin mustaqeemin
So he made it clear to them that he didn't fear them because what can they do to him and they are under the control of Allah.
Sometimes you put your trust in Allah but you don't get what you want, you may go through hardships, your enemies might get you, so you start to question yourself, and people will say to you: “You've put your trust in Allah so where is He to help you?” You start to question the help of Allah (S.W.T), you shouldn't do that, go a step further, keep your trust in Allah and be sure that Allah’s choice for you is better than your own choice for yourself.
