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.)

لا تعلق قلبك بمخلوق، تنتظر منه خيرا؛
فهو بنفسه حاجته عند مولاه، وبيد خالقه تحقيق مرغوبه، ودفع مكروهه.
اجعل حاجتك عند مولاك، وتعبد له باللجوء إليه والانطراح بين يديه.
فهو وحده ما شاء كان ومالم يشأ لم يكن.
