ALLAH Almighty says:
“When the Believers saw the Confederates, they said, ‘This is what ALLAH and His Messenger promised us. ALLAH and His Messenger told us the truth.’ It only increased them in faith and in submission.” (The Holy Quran 33:22)
“Those to whom people said: ‘The people great army have gathered against you, so fear them.’ But that merely increased their faith and they said: ‘ALLAH is enough for us and the best of Guardians.’ So they returned with blessings and bounty from ALLAH and no evil touched them. They pursued the pleasure of ALLAH. ALLAH’s favour is indeed immense.” (The Holy Quran 3:173-174)
“Put your trust in the Living who does not, die” (The Holy Quran 25:58) and the Almighty says, “So let the believers put their trust in ALLAH,”
“Then when you have reached a firm decision, put your trust in ALLAH.” (The Holy Quran 3:159)
“Whoever puts his trust in ALLAH ¬ He will be enough for him.” (The Holy Quran 65:3)
“The believers are those whose hearts tremble when ALLAH is mentioned, whose faith is increased when His Signs are mentioned to them, and who put their trust in their Lord.” (The Holy Quran 8:2)
Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A) said, “The Messenger of ALLAH, may ALLAH bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘All the nations were shown to me and I saw a Prophet with a small group, and a Prophet with one or two men, and a Prophet with no one at all. Then an enormous mass was shown to me and I thought that they were my community.
I was told, “This is Musa and his community, but look to the furthest horizon,” and there was an enormous mass. It was said to me, “This is your community. Among them are seventy thousand who will enter the Garden without reckoning or punishment.”‘ Then he got up and entered his house and the people discussed concerning those who would enter the Garden without reckoning or punishment. Some of them said, ‘Perhaps it is those who were with the Messenger of ALLAH,’ while others said, ‘Perhaps it is those who are born in Islam and do not associate anything with ALLAH,’ and they mentioned various things.
The Messenger of ALLAH came out to them and said, ‘What are you discussing?’ They told him and he said, ‘They are those who do not make charms or ask others for charms, and do not seek omens.
They trust in their Lord.’ ‘Ukkasha ibn Muhsin stood up and said, ‘Ask ALLAH to make me one of them.’ He said, ‘You are one of them.’ Then another man stood up and said, ‘Ask ALLAH to make me one of them.’ He said, “‘Ukkasha beat you to it.'” [Agreed upon]
Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A) reported that the Messenger of ALLAH (saw) used to say, “O ALLAH, I submit to you and I believe in you and I have relied on you and I turn to you and I have argued by you. I seek refuge with Your might, there is no god other than You, from Your misguiding me. You are the Living who does not die while jinn and men will all die.” [Agreed upon. This is the version in Muslim.]
‘Hazar Umar Bin Khitab (r.a) said, “I heard the Messenger of ALLAH (saw) say, “If you were to rely on ALLAH as He should be relied on, He would provide for you as He provides for the birds. They go out in the morning hungry and return in the evening full.” [at-Tirmidhi]
Abu ‘Umara al-Bara’ ibn ‘Azib reported that the Messenger of ALLAH (saw) said, “O so-and-so! When you retire to your bed, say, ‘O ALLAH, I submit myself to You and I have turned my face to You. I have entrusted my affair to You and taken shelter with You out of desire for You and fear of You. There is no shelter nor rescue from You except with You. I have believed in Your Book which You sent down and Your Prophet whom You sent.’ If you die during the night, you will die in natural submission, and if you are still alive in the morning, your morning will be good.“ [Agreed upon]
Anas reported that the Messenger of ALLAH (saw) said, “Whoever says, i.e. when he leaves his house, ‘In the name of ALLAH. I have relied on ALLAH and there is no power nor strength except by ALLAH’ will be told, ‘You have been guided, spared and protected,’ and Shaytan will be kept far from him.” [Abu Dawud, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa’i and others]
Abu Dawud added, “He, i.e. Shaytan, says to another shaytan, ‘How can you get at a man who has been guided, spared and protected?'”
