What does reliance on or trust in God mean?

Such reliance upon God should not be misunderstood: it does not mean ignoring cause and effect completely. It means, rather, that one should think of causes as a veil to the hand of Power: in observance of them one seeks to act in compliance with Divine Will, which is a sort of worship in action. That desire and seeking is, however, not sufficient to secure a particular effect. The achievement, we must understand, in accordance with right belief, is to be expected only from God, the All-Mighty: we believe in Him as the sole producer of effects, and therefore we should be always grateful to Him.

Alhamdulillah! Very humbling parable. Relieve the burden of the world and rely upon Allah (SWT)

True reliance upon Allah is Tawakkul.

65:3 (Y. Ali) And He provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And if any one puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him. For Allah will surely accomplish his purpose: verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion.
