Tie Your Camel

Anas (radi Allahu anhu) reported that a person asked Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), “Should I tie my camel and have Tawakkul (trust in Allah for her protection) or should I leave her untied and have Tawakkul.” Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, “Tie her and have Tawakkul.” (Hasan) [Jami At-Tirmidhi]

Tawakkul means to put in one's best efforts to do what Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) expects one to do and then leave the results to Allah's will. Tawakkul comes from conviction in qada wa qadar, one of the six pillars of eeman: What Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has written for me must come to pass.

Leadership's Obligations

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The person who accepts the charge of administering the affairs of the Muslims and then does not serve their interests and does not tire himself out in their service to the same extent that he tires himself out to fulfill his personal needs, shall be thrown by Allah headlong into the fire of Hell.” [Tabaraani]

Aware of the additional accountability that one will have to face, no pious Muslim asks to be burdened with leadership in any form. In fact, this is a litmus test to differentiate between those who understand Islam and those who don’t.

However, if one is entrusted with leadership without seeking it, or if the rights of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), the Muslims, or Islam are not being fulfilled, and one undertakes leadership only to fulfill this need, then one must work hard to honourably and honestly discharge the affairs entrusted to him.

Be fully conscious of your responsibilities and execute your duties diligently, energetically, and sincerely.
