Placing one's trust in Allah Ta'ala

Q: How to have trust in Allah ?

A: Adopt the halaal means and thereafter rely on Allah Ta'ala to make the outcome favourable. You should also think of the numerous endeavours and accomplishments you had embarked on and how Allah Ta'ala had assisted you throughout the way and brought each work to completion. If you ponder over every work that you had done, you will realize that it was not you who had completed it, but rather it was accomplished through the help and mercy of Allah Ta'ala. Similarly, you should ponder over the fact that Allah Ta'ala was there for you throughout your life caring for you and strengthening you from the time you were in the womb of your mother till this point. By reflecting and pondering in this manner, you will realize that the actual doer in the past was Allah Ta'ala, in the present it is Allah Ta'ala and in the future also it will only be Allah Ta'ala.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
