Trust in Allah Ta’ala

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am an engineer and jobless for 2 years since my graduation. I have given so many interviews and tests for job but had no luck. Now mostly I am in deep depression and I also don’t have my mother as she is no more to whom I could share my feelings. I blame Allah for my destroyed life and I pray to Allah to give me death. I heard a Hadith about Allah loves the human beings 70 times a mother, which I truly & strongly believe is LIE or atleast in my case..!! Thats it, I don’t want your opinion to trust in Allah, believe in Allah, something good will happen etc etc. Have a nice day.


A: If you truly believe that you don’t trust Allah then how do you trust me. We are only able to do what Allah wills. Hence, we are under His control entirely. When we are under His control entirely then how can you be so naive to think that I can be of assistance if Allah does not will the assistance to reach you. Try and understand this well. Leave out your stupidity and madness for some time and believe firmly that everything will happen when it is decreed. You cannot force Allah to make things happen as you wish.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
