Expecting Good Things from Others

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Don’t attach your heart to any created being, expecting something good from him; he himself [is such that] all his needs [only come] from his Mawlá;¹ in his Creator’s hands is the achievement of all he wants, the prevention of all he’d hate to have happen.

Make everything you need be from your Mawlá; subject yourself humbly to Him in worship by turning to Him for protection and support and throwing yourself down before Him.

He alone [is such that] whatever He wills, comes to be, and whatever He does not, does not.

¹the One who manages our affairs and supports us (trans.)
