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.

الإنسان في حياته كمن يلج بحرا لا يدري غوره، ولا يعلم منتهاه.
فهو أحوج ما يكون إلى سفينة أمان توصله.
أذكار الصباح والمساء، والنوم واليقظة، والطعام والشراب، وغير ذلك؛ كلّها بإذن الله صمام أمان للعبد.
ومن كان مع الله، وفي ذكره؛ فهو الآمن في الدنيا والآخرة.
