*Be mindful of Allāh and he will protect you* احفظ الله يحفظك

*Ibn Abbas reported: I was riding with the Messenger of Allāh, peace and blessings be upon him, and he said:*

يَا غُلَامُ إِنِّي أُعَلِّمُكَ كَلِمَاتٍ احْفَظْ اللَّهَ يَحْفَظْكَ احْفَظْ اللَّهَ تَجِدْهُ تُجَاهَكَ إِذَا سَأَلْتَ فَاسْأَلْ اللَّهَ وَإِذَا اسْتَعَنْتَ فَاسْتَعِنْ بِاللَّهِ وَاعْلَمْ أَنَّ الْأُمَّةَ لَوْ اجْتَمَعَتْ عَلَى أَنْ يَنْفَعُوكَ بِشَيْءٍ لَمْ يَنْفَعُوكَ إِلَّا بِشَيْءٍ قَدْ كَتَبَهُ اللَّهُ لَكَ وَلَوْ اجْتَمَعُوا عَلَى أَنْ يَضُرُّوكَ بِشَيْءٍ لَمْ يَضُرُّوكَ إِلَّا بِشَيْءٍ قَدْ كَتَبَهُ اللَّهُ عَلَيْكَ رُفِعَتْ الْأَقْلَامُ وَجَفَّتْ الصُّحُفُ

*Young man, I will teach you some words. Be mindful of Allah and he will protect you. Be mindful of Allāh and you will find him before you.*

*If you ask, ask from Allāh. If you seek help, seek help from Allāh.*

*Know that if the nations gathered together to benefit you, they will not benefit you unless Allāh has decreed it for you.*

*And if the nations gathered together to harm you, they will not harm you unless Allāh has decreed it for you.*

*The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.*

*[Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2516 |Sahīh]*

*In another narration, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:*

وَاعْلَمْ أَنَّ فِي الصَّبْرِ عَلَى مَا تَكْرَهُ خَيْرًا كَثِيرًا وَأَنَّ النَّصْرَ مَعَ الصَّبْرِ وَأَنَّ الْفَرَجَ مَعَ الْكَرْبِ وَأَنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا

*Know that there is much good in being patient with what you detest, victory will come with patience, affliction will come with relief, and ‘with hardship will come with ease.’ (94:4-5)*

*[Musnad Aḥmad 2800 | Sahīh]*
