Having Good Thoughts of Allāh

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

Having good thoughts of Allāh means that:

  • when you call upon Him, you know that He will answer you;
  • when you ask for His forgiveness, that He will forgive you;
  • when you ask Him to suffice you, that He will suffice you;
  • when you turn to Him for refuge, He will ensure you are protected;
  • and when you come [back] to Him, repentful, He will accept you.

Ibn Masʿūd, may Allāh be pleased with him, says: “By the One other than whom none have the right to be worshiped, no believing slave has been given anything better than [his] having good thoughts of Allāh the All-High ….

O Allāh, [bestow upon us] good thoughts of You that fill up our hearts [entirely].
