Know the structure upon which to build Tawakkul in Allah:
1.know that your provision is pre-determined.
2. –no one else can do your deeds
3. -death will be a surprise
4. have permanent haya, because Allah is always watching
5. The fasting of Dawud alayhis salam, per Rasoolullah (sws) was the most
virtuous – alternate one day fasting, one day not – makes you live
your live alternating between one day of sabr, one day of shukr.
This parallels and complements life, where one is always between niamah or balah.
