It is as if the whole world were brought to him

The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllahu ályhi wasallam) said:

“The one among you who wakes up secure in his property, healthy in his body and has his food for the day,

it is as if the whole world were brought to him.”

[Narrated by al-Bukhaari in al-Adab al-Mufrad (no. 300) and by al-Tirmidhi in al-Sunan (2346).]

The words “The one among you who wakes up” means, among you O believers. “Secure” means not fearing an enemy. “In his property (fi sirbihi) means feeling secure within himself; it was also said that it means feeling secure within the group, i.e., within his family and dependents. And it was said that it means on his path or way, or that it means in his house.”
[Al-Mubaarakpoori – may Allaah have mercy on him]

Al-Turbashti said: Mu’aafa (translated as healthy) means safe and sound with no illness and sickness.

“In his body” means both outwardly and inwardly. “And has his food for the day” means enough food from halaal sources. “It is as if the whole world were brought to him.”

Al-Manaawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
The one for whom Allaah has combined the blessings of physical good health, a sense of security wherever he goes and sufficient provision for the day, and kept his family safe, has been given all type of blessings by Allaah, which others may not have in full, so he should not start his day without give thanks for that, by using these blessings in obedience to the One Who bestowed them on him, not in disobedience, or and he should never cease to remember Him.
