O you who have believed, do not betray Allāh and the Messenger or betray your trusts while you know [the consequence]. [Al-Anfal: 27]

It is the quality of a believer to fulfill trusts. Our time, health, efforts, talents, wealth, youth, are all trusts from Allah. Therefore, it is necessary that we see where our efforts are gearing towards, and that we use these blessings to do that which is best, in the Cause of Allah.

And know that your properties and your children are but a trial and that Allāh has with Him a great reward. [Al-Anfal: 28]

Our wealth and children are a source of trial. Isn’t this what sometimes stops us from doing good, from fulfilling our trusts? We sometimes become over occupied with these two with all our efforts that we neglect our other obligations. But we must remember, that indeed with Allah is a great reward. The sacrifices that we make for the Deen will not go unrewarded.

O you who have believed, if you fear Allāh, He will grant you a criterion and will remove from you your misdeeds and forgive you. And Allāh is the possessor of great bounty. [Al-Anfal: 29]

Too many things on your mind – wealth, children, trusts? What is the solution? Taqwa (Fear of Allah). The doors to much benefit will open:
1. Allah will grant you a criterion, through which you will find ways out of difficulties.
2. Allah will expiate for you your sins.
3. Allah will forgive you.
