“Preserve Allah and He will preserve you”

In the name of Allah, all praise is to him, The One. I send peace and blessings upon His messenger (Al-Mustafa), upon his family, companions and those who followed him in goodness until The Day of Judgement (Youm Al-Qiyaamah). To proceed:

On the authority of Abu ‘Abbaas Abdullah ibn ‘Abbaas (radiAllahu ‘anhuma — may Allah be pleased with them two)1 said: I was behind The Prophet ﷺ one day and he said, “Oh young boy! I am going to teach you some words: preserve Allah and he will preserve you. Preserve Allah and you will find him in front of you. If you ask, then ask Allah; and if you seek aid, seek aid from Allah. Know! If the Ummah [nation] gathered to benefit you with something, they wouldn’t benefit you except with something Allah wrote [i.e., decreed] for you. And if the Ummah gathered to harm you with something, they wouldn’t be able to harm you except with something Allah wrote for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.”2

In a different narration, “Preserve Allah and you will find him in front of you. Remember Allah in ease and He will remember you in difficulty. Know! Whatever passed you by you were not going to happen to you and whatever happened to you was not going to pass you by. Know! Indeed success is with patience, indeed victory is with difficulty, and indeed with hardship is easy.”

His statement, “I was behind The Prophet ﷺ”, could mean that he was riding with him or walking with him. Whatever way it was, what is important is that he advised him with a great advise.
