“And rely upon Allah ; and sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.” [33:3]
Wakeel is sometimes translated is trusting, or lawyer and what does a lawyer do? A lawyer takes care of something on your behalf right? Like you want them to do something for you, you pay them, and they try to take care of that matter or that problem for you right? So Allah, Al-Wakeel is trusting, he is a lawyer, He does everything for us, yet asks for nothing monetary, all Allah asks for is some sincerity, some gratefulness.
Allah is wakeel over anything. Allah fulfills all our needs, maybe not that very second because we have to remember that at the same time Allah is Al-Hakeem, the wise so maybe you going to that conference on that weekend wasn’t best for you so Allah didn’t fulfill that because maybe he was protecting you from something else. Blessing in disguise. So, thus, Allah still is taking care of all of our needs.
In times of distress, upon who else will you call other than Allah, who will actually make a difference? Ranting to your friends might maybe help you share it with someone, maybe get some advice but at the end of the day, who can actually bring about change…Allah. And upon Allah we need to leave our trusts. Upon Allah we need to rely on and leave our affairs.
