Human Capacity to act.

Shu’ayb Alayhisalaam says to his people,
 وَمَا تَوْفِيقِي إِلاَّ بِاللّهِ  

And my tawfeeq is only from Allah. (Q, 11:88) 

He (Shu’ayb–A. S) said, “O my people, have you considered: if I am upon clear evidence from my Lord and He has provided me with a good provision from Him? And I do not intend to differ from you in that which I have forbidden you; I only intend reform as much as I am able. And my success is not but through Allah. Upon Him, I have relied, and to Him, I return. 

 Tawfeeq is oftentimes translated as “success” or “ability”, but tawfeeq has a much deeper meaning.
 

Tawfeeq from wow fa qaaf, and it literally means reconciliation or to agree. Tawfeeq is the coming together of all means that enable a person to achieve some good.
 

Sometimes we have the opportunity to do good, but we do not have the ability. Other times we have the ability to perform good, but don’t have the opportunity. 

Tawfeeq is the ability AND the opportunity to do something, and that is when all the means come together so one can do the good, they want…and this is only from Allah (SWT). 

We ask Allah ta’ala to grant us tawfeeq in our affairs, Ameen.
