Assigning the Affair to Allah Ta‘ala after Adopting the Means

Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:

A great lesson that we learn from the lives of the pious of the past was that they would adopt the necessary means for their work and thereafter they would assign their affair to Allah Ta‘ala. On the other hand, we adopt all the procedures and try to go the extra mile, but in the process we do not entrust our affair to Allah Ta‘ala. In doing so, Allah Ta‘ala then places the entire burden on the individual and this is the beginning to all problems and agony. Eventually, this leads to depression, for one has placed all his trust on the means and procedures, and not on Allah Ta‘ala.
