Description from the publisher:
Tawakkul (trust and reliance) on Allah has a tremendous place in the stations of servitude to Allah, Allah distinguisher his believing slaves from other than them by it, so whoever does not place tawakkul in Allah in essence, then indeed he is a disbeliever, and whoever places Tawakkul in Allah and in other than him, then he is a polytheist, and whoever places tawakkul in Allah alone, then indeed he is a monotheist believer whom Allah loves and is pleased with regards to his actions and statement, because he based them on a sound foundation....
Shaykh Saalih mentions the definition, conditions and fruits of Tawakkul, as well as a clarification of the difference between Tawakkul and Tawkeel (deputation).
