Bismillāh wa-Alḥamdulillāh wa al-Ṣalātu wa al-Salām 'alā Rasūlillāh ‘amma ba’d
On Sunday 13th November 2016, Muwahhideen Publications will host a LIVE tele-link lecture with Shaykh Bandar b. Sulaymān al-Khaybarī (May Allāh preserve him), who is from the mashāyikh of Madīnah and has been praised by Shaykh ‘Usāmah al-‘Amrī and Shaykh ‘Arafāt Muḥammadī (May Allāh preserve them) for his efforts in the da’wah.
This lecture event will be translated LIVE into English Inshā` Allāh.
“Tawakkul means that a person should put their trust in Allāh (Exalted be He) Alone. It is an obligatory act and one of the tenets of Īmān (faith). Allāh (Exalted be He) says: “...and put your trust in Allāh if you are believers indeed.” Tawakkul is one of the powerful moral means helping to achieve goals and fulfill purposes. However, a Muslim should combine it with other means, whether they are acts of ‘Ibādah (worship) like Du’ā` (supplication), Ṣalah (Prayer), Ṣadaqah (voluntary charity) or maintaining the ties of kinship, or other material means which Allāh has predestined that their effects follow from their causes like the examples mentioned by the questioner here. We should have Tawakkul to follow the way of Allāh's Messenger (peace be upon him) in this regard as he was the best person who had Tawakkul. He used to consider other appropriate material means along with his Tawakkul. So, whoever ignores the material means thinking that it is sufficient for them to have Tawakkul, contradicts the way of Allāh's Messenger (peace be upon him). This type of Tawakkul is not permissible. Rather, it is recklessness and not a Shar’ī (Islamically lawful) Tawakkul.
May Allāh grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muḥammad, his family, and Companions.” [Reference:http://www.alifta.net/Fatawa/FatawaDetails.aspx?IndexItemID=14776&SecItemHitID=16141&ind=11&Type=Index&View=Page&PageID=194&PageNo=1&BookID=7&Title=DisplayIndexAlpha.aspx]
Shaykh Bandar al-Khaybarī (ḥafiẓahullāh) will admonish us concerning this tremendous affair according to the Book and the Sunnah upon the understanding of our Pious Predecessors, and by the Permission of Allāh we will all understand the reality of Tawakkul and thus strive to implement it our lives.
We ask Allāh to rectify all our affairs and that He makes us from those who rely upon Him with true reliance.
