Admonition from The Prophet (p.b.u.h.) to a Young Man | 2006CE / 1427AH
“One day I was [riding on the same mount] behind the Prophet (may the blessing and peace of God be upon him) and he said to me:
Young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice]:
Be mindful of God, and God will protect you.
Be mindful of God, and you will find Him in front of you.
If you ask, ask of God; if you seek help, seek help of God.
Know that if the Nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything,
it would benefit you only with something that God already prescribed for you,
and that if they gather together to harm you with anything they would harm you with something God had already prescribed for you.
The pens have lifted and the pages have dried [i.e. what has been written and decreed cannot be altered.]”
Inspired by a Hadith announced by Abu Abbas ‘Abdullah, the son of ‘Abbas (may God be pleased with both).
The original composition was rendered in oil and watercolour, 1991CE / 1412AH.
