Power of Dua

فَتَقَبَّلَهَا رَبُّهَا بِقَبُولٍ حَسَنٍ وَأَنبَتَهَا نَبَاتًا حَسَنًا وَكَفَّلَهَا زَكَرِيَّا
كُلَّمَا دَخَلَ عَلَيْهَا زَكَرِيَّا الْمِحْرَابَ وَجَدَ عِندَهَا رِزْقًا
قَالَ يَا مَرْيَمُ أَنَّىٰ لَكِ هَـٰذَا ۖ قَالَتْ هُوَ مِنْ عِندِ اللَّهِ
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَرْزُقُ مَن يَشَاءُ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ

“’So her Lord accepted her well and made her grow up well, and put Zakariya in charge of her.
Every time Zakariya entered her sanctuary, he found food by her.
He asked, ‘Oh Maryam, How did you get this?’ She replied, ‘It is from Allah. Surely,
Allah provides for whomever He wills without measure,”

(Surah Aal Al-Imran 3:37)


In this verse, the chosen woman Maryam (peace be upon her) teaches us all a very important lesson about Rizq (sustenance) and Tawakul (putting your trust in Allah).

While her receiving this food was a miracle, it however teaches us to always remember that nothing is impossible for Allah and if we find ourselves in situations which it seems only a miracle can save us, then trust Allah and pray to Him for such a miracle.

Look at the example of Prophet Zakariya (peace be upon him) who was old and childless when this incident happened. Yet when Maryam told him this, he went and made dua for a child and Allah provided him with a son, the Prophet Yahya (peace be upon him).

We should have the same reaction when reading and hearing of such miraculous providing from the One who controls the universe, and immediately ask Him for things which no human can assist us with.

Tawakul and understanding Allah’s attribute of being the provider can have the following benefits for us, among others:

1) It can protect us from depression and despair, and increases patience and hope
2) It can keep us optimistic and motivated in the most difficult of tests
3) It keeps us content with what we receive in sustenance after working hard, knowing full well that Allah provides for us what we need and will not test us with that which we can’t handle
