It’s about Our Not Asking of Him That We Should Be Worried

Imām Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

When Allāh wants good for a slave, He inspires him to request of Him and ask for His help—and He makes [that] asking of help from Him and requesting of Him a means [of getting] the good that He has ordained for him, as ʿUmar ibn Al-Khaṭṭāb, may Allāh be pleased with him, said:

I don’t harbor worries about [my requests] being accepted and granted [by Allāh]; the only concern I have is about making the request [in the first place], for whenever I’m inspired to request [of Him], indeed, [His] acceptance [of it] and granting [it] comes along with it.
