Tawakkul-al-Allah (Trust in Allah)  
Whenever Zachariahs visited Mary at the sanctuary, he found food kept beside her. He asked, 'O Mary! Whence comes this to thee?' She said, 'It is from Allah, for Allah giveth sustenance to whosoever He willeth without measure. (3:37)

...And when thou art resolved on any course, [go ahead] and trust in Allah, for Allah loveth those who lay their trust [in Him]. (3:159)

And lay your trust in Allah if indeed ye are men of faith. (5:23)

They alone are believers whose heats thrill with the thought of Allah whenever His name is mentioned, and whose faith in Him increases as His Revelations are recited and who place implicit trust in their Lord, who observe the [prescribed] prayers, and give to others out of what We have provided them with. Such indeed are the true believers, their due places of honour lie with their Lord as well as His Forgiveness, and generous means of sustenance. (8:2-4)

"There is nothing that moveth on earth, the nourishment of which doth not depend on Allah." (S. 11: 6)

How many are the creatures that carry not their own sustenance? (29:60)

It is Allah who hath created you and provided your sustenance. In due course will He cause you to die; thereafter will He bring you back to life…." (30:40)

And sustenance for you is there in the heavens and that which ye have been promised." (51:22)

Lo! Allah! He it is that giveth livelihood, the Lord of unbreakable might (51:58)

And give him sustenance from whence he thinks not; and whoever trusts in Allah, He is sufficient for him; surely Allah attains His purpose; Allah indeed has appointed a measure for everything." (65:3)

O friend, the true seeker of Allah is one who adapts Trust in Allah (Tawakkul) by His authority. Allah says: "The Lord of the East and the West! There is none worthy of worship except Him. Take Him then for thy Protector." (73:9)
