Best Quality is to Have Trust in Allaah

“O My servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food of Me and I shall feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me and I shall clothe you.” [Upon Aboo Dharr, related by Muslim, at-Tirmidhee, and Ahmad]

Allaah the Most High says in His Book:

“…But ask Allaah for His bounty…” [4:32]

“And when the prayer is finished, then you may disperse through the land, and seek the Bounty of Allaah…” [62:10]

Although this aayah is in the context of the congreagational Friday prayer, its meaning applies to all the prayers. That is why- and Allaah knows best – the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam instructed the person entering the mosque to say,

“AllaahummaftaH lee abwaaba raHmatik” (O Allaah! open the doors of Your mercy for me) and when leaving the mosque to say,

“Allaahumma innee as’aluka min faDlik” (O Allaah! I ask of You some of Your Bounty)

[Muslim, Aboo Daawood, an-Nasaa’ee, ad-Daarimee, ibn Maajah, Ahmad, Aboo ‘Awaanah, Abdur-Razzaaq and al-Baihaqee]

and others states that, “He who begins the morning with this world as his greatest concern, Allaah disperses his collected gains and puts its loss in front of him, and only that of the world comes to him which is written for him. And he who begins the morning with the Hereafter as his greatest concern, Allaah gathers for him his works and creates richness in his heart due to them, and the world comes to him subserviently.” [Related by at-Tirmidhee with a da`eef isnaad, but the hadeeth is saheeh due to the supporting narrations of ibn Maajah, Ibn Hibbaan and Ahmad]

Allaah the Exalted says:

“I have only created jinn and men that they may worship Me. No  sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me. For Allaah is He who gives (all) sustenance, Lord of Power, Steadfast (forever).” [51:56-58]
