when the heart knows

“The meaning of tawakkul (trusting in Allaah), its levels, and what was said concerning it”

Shaykh Ibn Qayyim aj-Jawziyyah (rahimahullaah) comments:

It was said:

‘it is when the heart knows that the Lord is sufficient for the slave’

‘if he (truly) put his trust in Allaah, he would be pleased with what Allaah does’

‘a man is a mutawakkil (one who puts his trust in Allaah) when he is pleased with Allaah as Wakeel’

‘tawakkul is to cut the heart’s attachments to other than Allaah’

‘tawakkul is to submit to the decree of the Lord’

‘tawakkul has three levels: putting trust (in Allaah), then submitting, then entrusting (one’s affairs to Allaah); so the one who puts his trust (in Allaah) is reassured by His promise, and the one who submits is content with His knowledge, and the one who entrusts (his affairs to Allaah) is pleased with His decree.”

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
