Trust in Allah After Taking the Decision

{ And by the mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pardon them, and ask forgiveness for them, and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). }  Al-‘Imran 3:159

Allah’s statement, { Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, } means, if you conduct the required consultation and you then make a decision, trust in Allah over your decision,

{ Certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him) }.


{ If Allah helps you, none can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, who is there after Him that can help you And in Allah (Alone) let believers put their trust. }  Al-‘Imran 3:160

Allah’s statement,

{ If Allah helps you, none can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, who is there after Him that can help you And in Allah (Alone) let believers put their trust }, is similar to His statement:

{ And there is no victory except from Allah the Almighty, the All-Wise }  Al-‘Imran 3:126.

Allah next commands the believers to trust in Him, { And in Allah (Alone) let believers put their trust }.

(Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Chapter 3: Surat Al-‘Imran, Verses 159-160)
