I suffer from depression, anxiety and OCD. A scholar told me to believe in tawakkul of Allah. Can you explain what that is and how does it relate to my mental health please?

1 Answer 1


Tawakkul: Trust In Allah

Verse (65:3) And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah - then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.

Another verse for al-Imran

Verse (3:160) If Allah should help you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can help you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely.

  • Given that OP has asked a clear and focused question this is a poor answer and needs some real elaboration (see How to Answer).

  • Bro Yas: try to understand these verses, if cannot then hard to explain anything, these are the words of God not mine.

  • Evidences are not self-explanatory therefore you should explain and elaborate else your answer is rather useless! See on meta.
