How to use “Tawakkul” in Relieving our Anxieties and Worries

Allah Trust Quran verses

Tawakkul refers to putting your trust in Allah – to believe that He alone can ward off the harms of this world, provide you blessings and sustenance, and to ease your challenges. Tawakkul is also about accepting the results that He decides regardless of how they may turn out to be.

To understand the concept of Tawakkul, consider how tense and worried you get at times about the challenges of this worldly life. Whether it’s you worrying about losing your job or sustenance, or general life problems that you may come to face, Tawakkul is your belief and the attitude that you have about putting your trust in Allah to take care of all your affairs.

power of dua book

Allah (swt ), says:

surah talaq verse 3 tawakkul

And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever places his trust in Allah, Sufficient is He for him, for Allah will surely accomplish His Purpose: For verily, Allah has appointed for all things a due proportion. Quran (Surah Talaq, 65:3)

The Quran makes it clear that Tawakkul is not an option but rather a requirement. Allah (may He be Exalted) says:

quran surah al-maida verse 23 tawakkul trust

“…and put your trust in Allâh if you are believers indeed. Quran (Surah Al-Ma’idah, 5: 23)

He also says in the Quran:

surah ibrahim verse 11 tawakkul quran

“….And in Allah let believers put their Trust” [Surah Ibrahim 14:11]

Don’t give up on Your Efforts

Tawakkul shouldn’t be mistaken with giving up your efforts thinking that somehow your challenges will get resolved. Rather striving and working with the attitude that Allah will take care of your affairs and will help you in getting through your trials is part of you having the Tawakkul on Allah.

quran dua bismillah

Some scholars have stated that “Tawakkul in reality does not deny actually working and striving for provision, for Allah Almighty has decreed that we should work and it is from His ways that he gives people when they strive. In fact, Allah Almighty ordered us to both depend upon Him and to work, to take the necessary steps needed to achieve our goals, and so the act of striving for our sustenance is an act of physical worship while trusting and depending upon Allah is faith in Him.” (Permanent Committee for Research and Verdicts (Fatawa Islamiyah, Vol. 7, Pages 172-174)

Allah says:

“…So seek provision from Allah and worship Him (alone).” [Al-‘Ankaboot 29: 17]

Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan stated about this verse, “Look for sustenance and do not sit around in the masaajid claiming that you are putting your trust in Allah. Do not sit in your homes and claim that your daily sustenance will come to you.” This is wrong and a true believer doesn’t say such things.” (Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan Haqeeqat-ut-Tawakkul (pg. 15-25))

This obviously applies to not just seeking provisions but in striving to resolve other matters of our lives – just as long we remember and believe that His will is a prerequisite for our matters to get resolved and to accept what He ultimately decrees.

book dua success

The scholars have also stated that, “other than our efforts that we put in, a Muslim should also combine Tawakkul with other means, whether they are acts of `Ibadah (worship) like Du`a’ (supplication), Salah (Prayer), Sadaqah (voluntary charity) or maintaining the ties of kinship, or other material means which Allah has predestined.” (source : Fatwa no. 2798)

Allah (swt ), also says in the Quran:

[There were] those to whom people said: The people are gathering against you, so fear them. But it only increased their faith; they said: For us Allah is Sufficient and He is the best Disposer of affairs” (Qur’an 3:173)

Benefits of Tawakkul

One of the major benefits of Tawakkul is that it can relieve us from unnecessary anxiety, worry, and resulting depression from the challenges that we may be facing. By believing that all our affairs are in Allah’s hands and we can do only what is in our control, we leave the results to Allah and accept His decree whatever it may be. Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali said, “the fruit of tawakkul is the acceptance of Allah’s decree. Whoever leaves his affairs to Allah and then is accepting of what he is given has truly relied on Allah. Al-Hassan and others among the salaf defined tawakkul as ridhaa (acceptance).” (Jami’ Al-‘Uloom wa Al-Hikam : A Commentary on 50 Major Hadith)
Let’s strive to understand the concept of Tawakkul and to make it part of our belief systems. We will notice that things will not only get resolved easier with His help, but Tawakkul will also relieve us from the day to day anxieties and worries associated with the challenges of this life.

    Thank you for this. It seems as Allah (swt) talks to me when I need it most. Myself and also my family is probably going through one of the toughest times we have ever faced in our life and in my prayers I told Allah (swt) that I am going to put everything into his hands and let him handle it for me and stop questioning and worrying….well Alhumdulillah! Just then, I get this email. So as I said, it seems like Allah (swt) just responded to me…letting me know I did exactly what I was supposed to!! Allah ho Akbar.

  • Very Much Needed Article,,,for the guidance of true path….

  • Sabina Maniar

    Walhumdu Lillaah, This Dua’ah certainly comes as a sigh of relief. Tawakkul is something all Muslims should have in their hearts, minds and in their belief, no matter what their situation may be, good or bad, sometimes, things really get on top of us and lead us to forget how important Twakkul is. So Jazak Allaah Khairun for this and for all the articles Iqrasense sends out to us all.

    Jazak Allaah & Wa Salaam

  • Abdulwahhab

    Al-HamduiiLLAH for the belssings of Islam. A nice article. May Allah bless all those behind it, our brothers and sisters who read it and the Ummat of Muhammad (S.A.W.). Tawakkul is a much needed component of our faith, epecially these days, when you look around and see the trendous suffering of our brethren around the globe. It is then we need to realize that Allah controls everything and can change any situation anytime according to His plans. We need to fullfil our duties as espoused in our our sacred book, the Qur’an and on the way shown by rasuluLLAH, the final messenger, Muhammad (Peace be on HIM).

  • Mohamed Katter Kallon

    Assallamu Aleikum…Glory be to Allah and a thousand thanks to you all for this good work…”tawakul”. It’s like a portion of an islamic crusade in this world of today as there is a tendency of people going astray, all because of worldly gains. We all need it to give us a second thought. May the blessings of Allah be upon us.

  • Anonymous

    Assalam Alaikum, As soon as I read the article it gave me an immense satisfaction. Today the wholeday I ws disturbed and I was thinking that no one understands my action ( something I was thinking of), so how I’ll carry the things without anyone’s support. Though I knew all the things discussed in the article, but still I was disturbed. Sometimes reminding of such type of things are very useful for everyone as I’m seeing that most of the commenters tell that they needed this exactly at that moment. Nice effort. I make dua to Allah that He should give me and everyone who is attached with this article the true faith and tawakkul in ALLAH (SWT).

  • Maxi

    Alhamdulilah as if you knew I needed this!

  • Carole

    Assalam Alaikum. Alhamdulillah for this wonderful article. I was needing those wisdom words in the moment that I received them.May the blessings of Allah be upon us. Ameen.

  • Ayla

    MashAllah a comprehensive article on a very important topic.
    All of us especially the muslim youth needs to understand and practice in tawakul from an early age.
    This would enable them to be in command of true tawakul Allah in the challenges faced in life later on.
    Parents can help by highlighting this aspect of Tawakul to school going children as well.

  • qahera sayed

    ASAK sisters and brothers of my deen-e-islaam,
    a very nice article indeed. and as sister Z has mentioned, we too are going thru a tough time and aazmaaish from Allah swt. but deep down in ouir hearts, and as sister mutarba khan has pointed out, we know for sure, inshallah, things will be taken care of by Allah swt and something too good will result from all these aazmaaish. one more thing that we have realized is that all these aazmaaish has brought us much closer to Allah, as is my daily dua to Him.
    i request all of you to remember us all in your dua. may Allah swt. rid the problems with His aafiyat and khair-o-barakaat for sister Z and us too. aameen.

  • Rob

    bismillah. alhamdulillah. anything we do, if we do it with faith in heart, conscience and aware that we do it in the bases of halal, seeking the pleasure of Allah, we will feel as if we acomplished something already, wheather we achieve our objective or not. This will help us not despair and be happy with any outcome Allah has decreed for us, knowing we are on the right path because our hearts are with Allah. May Allah strenghten the faith of all who seek knowledge.

  • Ayesha

    JazakAllah for sharing…it was the need of the hour …Surely ALLAH is sufficient for all our needs…and He is the best Helper

  • seema esmail

    Excellent article with knowledge, we should leave our problems and whole life on Allah,and HE will solve our problems.

  • Jazak allah khair for this wonderful article. The Shaitan is very busy trying every way to destroy our eman
    but such topics make us feel that Allah chooses whats best for us, be it good times, badtimes or hard times Allaha
    is always testing us and I hope our eman increases and so does our patience. Salah and Quran are the best ways
    to speak to Allaha and making as much dua and never giving up on allaha is a real test for us. I hope we get to read
    more such articles which will increase our faith and TAWAKKUL.

  • Muhammed Thani Isa

    Jazakumullah kheyr

  • Arif

    Very difficult but basic concept .
    It is possible to grasp this idea theoretically, yet
    one needs to grasp it with the heart in order
    to benefit fully from it.

  • Anisa...


    Very timely… Brother’s and Sister’s in Islam, be reminded and comforted in knowing that, Allah puts those He loves into difficulties to test us in our faith. Remain strong and steadfast, continue to strive, and trust Allah, surely He is sufficient for all of our needs, truly the best disposer of affairs, and after difficulty does indeed come ease…. Subhannallah!

  • Mbye

    Alhamdu lilah, may god bless you for this article. I think the problem with a lot of muslims today, is that they beleive in God, but they don’t have faith in God, we have more faith in people than God and thus when something happens, we tend to seek help from people instead of Allah (SWTA), that’s why our problems never seems to get solved. put your trust in Allah na he will always fine a way out for you. may Allah increase our faith Amen.

  • Larry Green

    Ibn Abi Dunya (r) said:”It has reached me that one of the wise people said, ‘Reliance has three degrees, first: giving up complaining; second: contentment; third: love. Giving up complainingis the degree of steadfastness. Contentment is tranquility of the heart towards that which is decreed for one, and that is higher than the former. Loveis that one’s loveis for that which ALLAH (swt) does with one. The first is the degree of those who do without (zaahiduun). The second is that of the truthful (saadiquun). The third is that of the messengers. Aamiin!

  • shazma

    Honestly this is very true all that you have stated. I myself have gone through such experiences and seen stress levels drop amazingly by only Allah’s help even though the problems lingered but the anxiety was much less and so was the worry of what is going to come next.
    So I would say while striving put your faith in Allah.

    Verily Allah provides without measures. How can we as Muslims forget this subhanallah! He Allah SWT gave her fruits out of season! May Allaha Guide us to the Straight path that lead to Jannah. Ameen

  • The article is a blessing to relieve the depression & anxiety of a believer that is going through the difficulties of this dunya, jazaka Allahu khahiran


    i found the article quite soothing, as me and my husband are being blackmailed by a widow to whoom we have been supporting for five years. Now she is claiming herself to be his wife by presenting editted photos and by the id card which she had made with our knowledge.since we are living abroad ,so cant do much but still some of our close freinds are working hard to bring the case to the court. But every time we start some legal action it comes up with some new demand.this made us very me and my husband have come to the point ehat though our intentions were pure we were supporting the lady and her daughter with the zakat money. now if we are facing this problem this could be a punishment for our some sin of which we are un aware so if we will do sabar inshallah we will be free from it. since last three months alhamdulilah we have been praying salat tauba and have become punctual in our fajar salat. i request you all to pray for us that Allah accepts our tauba and get us free from this difficulty.That was the thing that could be done from our side now every thing is left on Allah .

  • mohamed shihab

    I thank to “Alalh” always becuase he made me as a Muslim. And whaterver we facing in the life Allah has given to solution for everything it may be minor problem or major problem.

    I thank the Author, Jazak Allah.

  • Tawakkul is an eye opener to all Muslim brothers and sisters, so have faith in Allah SWT and be positive in your ibadah. I have gone through so much in life but my trust and belief in Allah has always helped me to overcome those hard times. Subhan Allah

  • Linda sobhee

  • Zuwena

    Shukran jazillah, for real the message has revived my self estime since anxiety and worries of this life were eating me. I submit myself to Allah completely.

  • Omar. H

    Subhanallah!! Thanks for the info about tawakkul. May allah(SWT) give us the ability to place our trust in him. It’s easy to say but hard to do. You seriously have to just except that it’s not entirely in your hands but in Allah’s. Thank you so much for giving me a different perspective for how you should just leave it to Allah (and no not just siting at home expecting that your payments are going to be paid). And yes, Allah is the most beneficent the most merciful (He would more likely help you in desperate times, such as the payments). So be strong in you faith and don’t forget that every human being has a perpose in this world (that would be a positive yet meaningful one).
    May Allah grant us jannah and forgive our sins.

  • fawzia

  • Farah

    Thank you for posting such an article on your website which I only joined yesterday. Believe it or not, just a few moments ago, I was sitting on my couch in a contemplating mood after Esha prayers and actually looking for some specific duas and supplications in times of trials. Your post could not have served its purpose any better in terms of timing alhamdullillah.

  • amina remmy

    Shukran Jazillaah to the entire team in educating the Muslimah on basic lslamic things like ‘Tawakkul’ word …its for you or one to work hard and let Allaah rewards you…not to sit and wait for manna from heaven as it stated in the story books…

  • Aisha

    Jazakallah. Good knowledge to gain and an eye ‘opener’.

  • Drishti Suri

    This article is really helpful. I’m a non-muslim thinking about conversion and somehow thinking about the outcomes of conversion made me worried as most of my relatives won’t want me to do that. But this article just strengthened my belief, that Allah takes care of us 🙂

  • mehwish hanif

    Assalam u alaikum friends,
    For 7 years I have been striving to understand the concept of tawwakul . Today I understand it. .
    I was tense from 7 years due to my day to day problems and now I am feeling i mmensely relaxed. I wish I could have read it earlier. InshaAllah from now I will practice it. May Allah give sawab to all those people behind this article Ameen

  • sadiyya

    Jazakallah very motivating • Allah surely answers our duas alhamdulillah subhaanallah allahu akbar

  • asalamalakom

    subhanallah this article came in time when im feeling so down for i have been down for a few years alhamdullilah. i have big fiath in allah (swt) and i will always tawakul ala allah. ALLAH IS TESTING US IN SO MANY WAYS TO SEE HOW WE RESPOND .ALHAMDELLALLAH. Its amazings how things show up it makes you think twice that allah (swt) never forgets you.

  • Taofiq

    Thank u for this wonderful article, may Allah increase us in faith and iman

  • Mansoor Khan

    Excellent article on Tawakkul. A good article would be on dawat and tabligh.

  • Fatma

    Alhamdulillah I found this site. Thank you so much for inspiring not just me but those people who had read this article of yours about Tawakkul. I’m feeling so down and I’m facing many difficulties in my life now and seriously, I just really don’t know what to do. But Alhamdulillah I read about this article of yours and it gave me hope and I started to think that everything will be okay as long as we put our trust in Allah (S.W.T) We must also accept everything that comes our way and we should be thankful and say Alhamdulillah for every challenge or difficulty or test that we have in our lives now because it’s one way for us to be close and for us to have a good and a better relationship with Allah (S.W.T) We must also remember that Allah (S.W.T) tests the one he love. So smile my brothers and sisters in Islam because there’s no need for us to be sad. Nothing in this world is permanent so let’s put in our minds that the anxieties and worries that we feel now will not last forever. Let’s just pray to Allah (S.W.T) and Insha’Allah Allah (S.W.T) will grant us what’s good in this world and will give us Sabr and will forgive all our sins and Insha’Allah Allah (S.W.T) will grant us (all of the Muslim Ummah) Jannah. Ya Allah (S.W.T) help all of us and Alhamdulillah for everything. We love you so much.

    Marsha Allah it’s like Allah(SWT) is speaking to me also when this came to my phone.Iam facing something with my job.I have to speak up for the sake of Allah to take actions.I know it’s wrong what my employer is doing to us.Having employees who make over 80hrs but if I need coverage he may get that person to cover for me and I will have to pay them outta my check.He will give me the hours that I didn’t work and I have to them.So overtime and time in a half won’t show on there paystub.So I filed a complaint with wage and hour.And they most definitely agree that’s against the law.Insha Allah I get another job.Putting my trust in Allah! And I truly believe in the six article of faith:Believe in Allah divine decree good or bad..Allah is the owner of all our affairs.Marsha Allah.Allah (SWT) is speaking to me when this came to my phone.I know this the right thing to do.Ameen
