In Getting through the Ocean of Life

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

Throughout his life, a person is like someone who has gotten [himself] into an ocean whose depth he does not fathom and whose limits he does not know. So he is in as great a need as is possible of a lifeboat to get him [across].

Words of remembrance and supplications of all forms—[those] made at dawn and in the late afternoon; when going to sleep and upon awaking; when eating and drinking; and other than that—all of them are, if Allāh permits, safeguards for the slave [of Allāh].

Whoever is with Allāh and [involved] in remembering Him [in his heart and on his tongue], he’s someone who will be safe in this life and the Hereafter.
