Placing one’s Reliance on Allah Ta’ala

1Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned:

A person becoming despondent of Deeni progress on account of lack of resources is in actual fact a sign that his reliance on worldly means is more than his conviction upon the power of Allah Ta’ala and His promises. One should place his reliance entirely upon Allah Ta’ala and work with determination. Allah Ta’ala will create the means for the work to be accomplished. Otherwise, without the Divine help of Allah Ta’ala, what can man do of his own accord? Nevertheless, mustering up courage and determination and striving is vitally important in order to receive the Divine help of Allah Ta’ala. (Malfoozaat Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg.81)
