Fearing to lose your job

Home / Aqeedah - Tawheed / Fearing to lose your job


I’m a sister working in a shop wearing jilbab and I do not want to leave it. Even if I know that Allah is Al-Akbar usually I think about what will happen with me if I lose my work, who will provide for me?. Do I commit shirk if I get worry thinking who will provide for me?

Sheikh Waleed Boghdady:

This is shirk in tawakkul (reliance upon Allah), this is not correct, we take by the means and don’t think about tomorrow because Allah is The All-Provider, The Only Razzaq (Provider) is Allah subhaanahu wa taala, so don’t think about what will happen tomorrow. We just take by the means by working, knowing that Allah will provide for us either through this job or through any other source of provision. Do not think about it again.
