Dependance on God. التوكل على الله

In our being (existence) and our life, we are completely dependent on Allah, our Creator. This existence and life is given to us by Him; We are not self-existent. We cannot survive without His will. We are also dependent on material conditions. We cannot exist without water, air, food, light, a certain temperature, and so on.

We cannot have a comfortable life without the help of other members of the society. No one can produce for himself whatever he needs of clothes, shelter (house), furniture, etc. With the progress and development of human societies these needs increase. Thus, we are dependent on our Creator and his blessings in the material universe and in the social universe.
In our knowledge and understanding, we are not needless. With his God-given intellect every human being is able to understand many facts such as the truth of the religion and the.; existence of Allah and to acquire some easy and simple:) information about the nature and the environment around him. I With his God-given conscience, every human being understands) the general rules of morality, e.g., justice is good and oppression is bad. This theoretical and practical knowledge is common between men in primitive societies and men in advanced ones.
But what; makes us different from those ancient (earliest) people is what we have received from the prophets, especially the Noble Prophet of Islam, the seal of the prophets, whose message is the last and the;; most perfect message of our life and what we have received from the past generations. These two sources, religion and inherited knowledge, are very important. They serve as the point of departure for every field in the sciences, arts, literature, technology and positive laws (contracts) which have become very complicated, developed and advanced. For example, today when a chemist starts to work on a project, he uses the results of previous discoveries and inquiries. Many of those achievements have become trivial. Perhaps university students today know more than chemists in the 18th or even 19th century. Or in Islamic sciences, today we use many works on different subjects made by great scholars in the past centuries. Without them we would have to start from the beginning. But we are still on the way. What we know is much less than what we do not know.
Thus, we are completely needful and dependent in our existence, our life and our knowledge. We should not be proud of ourselves. We should not think we are needless or that our knowledge and understanding are perfect.

Allah says..

وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى الْعَزِيزِ الرَّحِيمِ
And put thy trust on the Exalted in Might, the Merciful,-

الَّذِي يَرَاكَ حِينَ تَقُومُ
Who seeth thee standing forth (in prayer),

  1. YeS iNdeed We Humans are ToTaLLY
    Dependent on the Nature of
    God it is also
    Not noting
    now that while
    Humans may
    be Mute God
    Will Never have to Speak…
    No Human is God alone Nor Any
    Words As Humans Create Words God
    is more Powerful than any Word
    Speaks with
    Now or without
    the realization Now
    that God Lives Free Within
    with no words at all… the
    Greatest Prophet is God
    God Always is the First
    And the Last with no Words/Human at all..
    Other than that Breathe BReaTHE Beautiful
    Sohair Enjoy Free Air of God enclosed in no Words at all..
    Smiles now

    God Looks
    at Human
    Words like Dust

    Returning to Stars as We are too..

  2. Hi Fred..
    No religion trend.. But I have another opinion… Or I have another belief. I love my holy book.. Quran.
    I believe in every word in my holy book.
    Every word in that book was revealed on the heart of prophet Mohammad Peace and blessings be upon him.
    I do not worship the strong prophet Mohammad… But I believe in every word which was sent to him by Allah.
    Quran for Muslim is not just words that are repeated in prayers..
    No Quran is life for us… For me.
    When I read Quran I listen to God speaking to me.
    When I want to speak with God I can say any word or never say a word… Yes God can listen to me and feel me even if I don’t speak.
    But the absent reality to the non Muslims is how much Muslims love their book.. And how much we love our prophet Mohammed. Also we love all prophets and messengers of God.. Allah.
    When someone insults Mohammad he insults me and hurt me badly and hurt every Muslim.
    I do not agree with you Fred..
    But you still my dear friend.

  3. Smiles my Friend Sohair considering i did not mention Muhammad
    or the Quran it will be interesting to me if you will quote which
    line i just wrote you disagree with.. All Words are metaphors
    and it becomes easy to read what is not originally intended
    in words for all of us as this is no slight against either the Quran
    or Muhammad now
    this is just what
    i see as
    and sense
    that God
    is Bigger
    than Human
    Words and Human
    too i really don’t Feel
    you disagree with me
    on this.. for what i
    originally intend
    in that case anyway
    there is no need i feel i sense
    i see at least to defend what i am not
    intending to offend my friend.. this is
    just my feeling my sense of my reality
    of God as the Greatest Force there is Now
    All with no
    in other
    what i am
    saying verily
    leaves out
    now neither
    or the Quran
    as God is no
    God of Exclusion
    either dark through
    Light as far as i will ‘see’ at least..:)
