The Phrase “The Rest is up to Allah” is Not Correct
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
How correct is it to say, “I have done my best and the rest is up to Allah”?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allah
This phrase is not correct, because it means that the one who says it is putting his trust in himself first. What he should say is, “I have done my best and I ask Allah for help.” This is what is correct.
Perhaps when a person says “I have done my best and the rest is up to Allah”, what he means is what I have suggested here, i.e., what I could do, I have done, and what I cannot do is up to Allah, But the phrase is basically incorrect. Rather he should say, “I have done my best and I ask Allah for help.”
And Allah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
