When he was thrown into the huge, raving fire, what did Ibrahim (‘alayhissalam) say?
Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and, He is the Best Disposer of affairs. [al-Bukhari]
When Banu Israel were stuck in front of the Red Sea, behind them the army of Fir’awn, what did Musa (AS) say?
Indeed, with me is my Lord; He will guide me. [26:62]
The word tawakkul comes from the root word wakala, to entrust, to rely/depend on, or to have confidence in another. And Allah is Al-Wakeel, The Disposer of Affairs, the One entrusted. The essence of tawakkul is to entrust our affairs to Allah and be content knowing that He will take care of everything.
