فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا : Verily, with hardship comes ease. [94:6]

Tawakkul (trusting and relying on Allah) is realizing that our Protector has a plan for us. Tawakkul is having complete trust that Allah’s plan is the best plan. Tawakkul is having full faith that Allah will take care of you—even when things look impossible. Tawakkul is standing in front of the Red Sea—as Prophet Musa did—with an army behind you, and not even flinching, knowing that Allah will get you through. It is having full faith that when Allah takes away the umbilical cord, He will replace it with milk.
—  Yasmin Mogahed, “Reclaim Your Heart”

When everyone out there is getting what you want & you’re waiting for your turn, be patient. Know that your time will come too and when it comes Allah will give you more than you asked for. But be patient because that’s what Allah has chosen for you. Don’t worry about it, if things don’t work then let it go. If you have tried your hardest and it doesn’t work or it didn’t help you be a better person then let it go. Free yourself from worries and pain by relying on Allah. Just be patient, your time is yet to come. Allah knows your struggles. He sees your efforts & He has heard your duas so be patient for His answer. He is going to give you something better than whatever is in front of you right now.

أشياء جميلة تنتظر الذين صبروا

Beautiful things await those who are patient

Don’t get attach to a “certain” moment. Each moment will pass whether it may be happiness or sadness. Sometime we get so attach to sadness that we don’t see the bigger picture that it shall too pass. Be grateful for every moment whether its happiness or sadness. Your Lord is with you and you can deal with any situation. Be positive and rely on Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

‘Umar said, “I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, ‘If you were to rely on Allah as He should be relied on, He would provide for you as He provides for the birds. They go out early in the morning hungry and return in the evening full.’”
– Narrated by at-Tirmidhi and he said, “Hadith Hassan.”

[Al-Wakil/The trustee/The Excellent Guardian]
“Allah suffices as a Disposer [of affairs].” ‎﴾‬‎4.81﴿‬
Allah is All-good and All-powerful; all our affairs are best entrusted to His care, for He is the best Guardian of all interests “In Allah let the believers put all their trust.” ‎﴾3.160‬‎﴿‬‎
Putting one’s trust in Allah means that one should take all possible precautions and then leave the results in the hands of Allah, who knows the working of events better than any human mind can conceive of. “And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah. Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].” ‎﴾‬‎3‬‎‎.‬‎1‬‎5‬‎9‬‎﴿‬ A true believer, like the Prophets, realises that the fruition of his efforts comes only from Allah, therefore He turns to no one else for that. “Sufficient for us is Allah , and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs."‎﴾‬‎3‬‎.‬‎1‬‎7‬‎3‬‎﴿‬ The Prophet ‎ﷺ‎‬‎ recommended the following dua before sleeping: "O Allah, I surrender myself to You and entrust my affair to You, with hope in You and fear of You. There is no resort and no deliverer (from hardship but You). I affirm my faith in the Book which You revealed and in the Messengers whom You sent.” (Sahih Muslim : Book 48, Hadith 77) ‎اللَّهُمَّ أَسْلَمْتُ نَفْسِي إِلَيْكَ وَوَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِي إِلَيْكَ وَأَلْجَأْتُ ظَهْرِي إِلَيْكَ وَفَوَّضْتُ أَمْرِي إِلَيْكَ رَغْبَةً وَرَهْبَةً إِلَيْكَ لاَ مَلْجَأَ وَلاَ مَنْجَا مِنْكَ إِلاَّ إِلَيْكَ آمَنْتُ بِكِتَابِكَ الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَ وَبِرَسُولِكَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلْتَ ‏.‏ فَإِنْ مَاتَ مَاتَ عَلَى الْفِطْرَةِ ‏"
To take Allah as the only Guardian is part of our belief in Allah, as is clear from this verse “(O Prophet, tell them) "He is the Most Merciful; we have believed in Him, and upon Him we have relied.” ‎﴾‬‎6‬‎7‬‎.‬‎2‬‎9‬‎﴿‬ Tawakkul (having trust in Allah) is a highly desirable and rewarding trait which all of us should try to develop for it reinforces our belief in the One true God.❤️

Quran (11:56)

إِنِّي تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّـهِ رَبِّي وَرَبِّكُم ۚ مَّا مِن دَابَّةٍ إِلَّا هُوَ آخِذٌ بِنَاصِيَتِهَا ۚ إِنَّ رَبِّي عَلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ ﴿٥٦﴾ سورة هودIndeed, I have relied upon Allah , my Lord and your Lord. There is no creature but that He holds its forelock. Indeed, my Lord is on a path [that is] straight.“
