Full reliance on Allah – Tawakkul


Salamou alaykoum,

I have a question regarding tawakkul.
Does Allah love a person that depends on Him solely? And how would a person know which way to proceed? Do we get inspiration or a feeling?

I am the type of person who dislikes asking anyone for any favor. I like to look for my own opportunities. for example: I dislike giving someone my resume to pass around for hope for a job. instead, I say “I depend on Allah, I will find my own job by Allah’s help”.

Is this correct to do? Please guide me.

Jazakkallahu kairan


Alaykum Salam,

You can look on your own and at the same time pass your resume around. Tawakkul is not negated by that as long as you know in your heart that everything comes from Allah. Be simple in accepting His favors even when they come through His servants.

Hajj Gibril Haddad
