The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

“My entire nation is safe, except al-Mujahirin (those who boast of their sins). Among the Mujaharah is that a man commits an (evil) act, and wakes up in the morning while Allah has kept his (sin) a secret, he says: “O so- and-so! Last night I did this and that.” He goes to sleep while Allah has kept his (sin) a secret but he wakes up in the morning and uncovers what Allah has kept a secret!”

[Saheeh al-Bukhari]

لن يبلُغَ العلمَ جميعاً أحدٌ

لا ولَوْ حاوَلَهُ ألفَ سنَهْ

تَوكلْتُ في رِزْقي عَلَى اللَّهِ خَالقي
وأيقنتُ أنَّ اللهَ لا شكٌ رازقي
وما يكُ من رزقي فليسَ يفوتني
وَلَو كَانَ في قَاع البَحَارِ الغَوامِقِ
سيأتي بهِ اللهُ العظيمُ بفضلهِ
ولو لم يكن مني اللسانُ بناطقِ
ففي أي شيءٍ تذهبُ النفسُ حسرة
وَقَدْ قَسَمَ الرَّحْمَنُ رِزْقَ الْخَلاَئِقِ

Al-Bukhaari (1496) and Muslim (1053) narrated that Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“…whoever is patient Allaah will bestow patience upon him, and no one is ever given anything better and more generous than patience.”

And Muslim (918) narrated that Umm Salamah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said:

I heard the Messenger of Allaah (S) say:

“There is no Muslim who is stricken with a calamity and says what Allaah has enjoined – ‘Verily to Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return. O Allaah, reward me for my affliction and compensate me with something better’ – but Allaah will compensate him with something better.”
