Surah At-Talaq (verse 3), where Allah says, "and provide for them from sources they could never imagine. And whoever puts their trust in Allah, then He ˹alone˺ is sufficient for them. Certainly Allah achieves His Will. Allah has already set a destiny for everything." This means that Allah can provide sustenance to a person in unexpected or unconventional ways.
The interpretation of this phrase relates to having trust and reliance on Allah in providing for our needs. If we have God-consciousness, fear Allah, and seek closeness to Him, then Allah will provide for us sustenance and success in ways that we may not anticipate or calculate. This statement signifies that Allah is capable of accomplishing matters through unexpected and unforeseen means.
It is important to understand that this does not imply that we should abandon all efforts and solely rely on divine intervention. Rather, we should exert our utmost efforts in work and planning, while recognizing that Allah is the ultimate Provider and that our sustenance comes from Him through both apparent and hidden means.
Therefore, we should work diligently, plan effectively, and simultaneously have trust in Allah, knowing that He is capable of providing for us and assisting us in ways that we may not expect.
