Would you expect someone to help you if you don't attempt to help yourself first?

    I would.

    If you could do it yourself, would you need help? Well of course not.

    interestingly i had this conversation with my sheikh a few years back.

    he said alot of muslims blindly "seek refuge with Allah from the Shaytan", but don't do anything about it.

    gave an e.g. - you're stranded and a lion is infront of you, but there is shelter near by, if you don't do anything to actually seek refuge from the lion, and just stand there saying "i seek refuge with the shelter", you're going to get eaten no questions asked.

    there's alot of us who just put our trust and faith in the Almighty, which is good in a way but can be detremental.

    the prophet ordered us to have faith, but tie your camels, meaning wear your seatbelts, do what you can do to stay safe.

    this might end up sounding like a preach post, but it's very far from it.
