Having Good Thoughts of Allāh and Having Him with Us

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

Allāh the All-High says: “I am [to] my slave as he holds Me to be.”¹

So hold good thoughts of your Lord that He forgives those who repent, responds to those who call upon Him, and gives those in need [what they need].

Remember and mention Him frequently, and you’ll have His special Maʿīyyah–[His being with you, while He is above His throne, with His knowledge and special care]– protecting you, taking care of you, and coming to your aid.

O Allāh, we can’t change [our situation], and we have no power [to do so], unless You [ordain that and help us]. O Allāh, don’t leave us to ourselves for even the flash of an eye.

¹Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim, 2675 (trans.)
