Trust In Allah

Qur'an Verse: 
Tawwakkal 'allalah, Put your trust in Allah 
Allah loves those who put their trust in Him 3:159

When you believe in something you can not see, it is called having faith. The people who got on the ark could not see any water or rain but they listened to Prophet Nuh and put their trust in Allah to save them from drowning.

Can not see wind, but have faith that if you held a kite outside it would fly!
Can not see electricity, but have faith that when you turn on the switch, there will be light!
We can not see Allah but we have faith that He is always there.

Lesson Introduction:
When Prophet Ibrahim was asked by Allah to leave his wife Hajra and little baby Ismail in the desert all on their own, they both put their trust in Allah. There was no food, water or even anyone else living there but their faith made them strong. They did not worry about what would happen because they knew that Allah will look after them.

Activity: Faith Makes You Strong
Take two empty plastic water bottles. Tightly cap one of them and leave the other one without the lid. Compare the uncapped bottle to a person without faith, and the capped bottle to a person who has faith. Try to crush both bottles by squeezing your hand around them. The uncapped bottle will crush, but the one with the cap will not.


The strength faith gives us is easy to see. When we put our trust in Allah we do not need to worry or be afraid of anything. Our faith in Him makes us strong.

If you're scared at night your mummy might tell you to recite some Surahs. If you put your trust in Allah knowing He will look after you, it will make you feel strong and safe and you will be able to sleep peacefully.
Allah tells us in the Qur'an to put our trust in Him 3:159. Allah loves us seventy times more than our mothers and He will always do what is good for us. Having faith in Allah helps us stay strong.
