Shaykh Khalid al – Dhufayri -HafidhuAllaah- said:

From the most significant reasons for a person’s heart to be in anguish and anxiety is when a worshipper of Allaah thinks badly of his Lord.

He assumes that Allaah Ta’ala  will not give him provisions or that his provisions will go to someone else. Or that Allaah will not take away his stress and affliction, and that He will not free him from his sadness.

So he remains in opposition to Allaah Ta’ala and is angry and bitter with his fate and destiny.

O worshipper of Allaah every time you assume good of your Lord, your anxiety will leave, and you will be helped in your worldly matters and you will be given success for your Hereafter.

From Jabir bin Abdullaah al-Ansaari  -RadhiAllaahu anhu- who said:

‘I heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam saying three days before he died:
      (لا يَمُوتَنَّ أَحَدُكُمْ، إِلاَّ وَهُوَ يُحْسِنُ
               الظَّنَّ بِاللهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ)
‘Let not one of you dare die except that he has good thoughts / assumptions of Allaah Azza wa Jal.’

[Collected by Muslim]

The status of the worshipper of Allaah to Allaah is in accordance to his thought/assumption of his Lord.

From Wa’il bin al- Asqa’ -RadhiAllaahu anhu- who said:

I heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam saying:
(إِنَّ اللهَ تَعَالَى يَقُولُ : أَنَا عِندَ ظَنّ عَبْدِي بِي ، إِنْ كَانَ خَيْراً فَخَيْر ، وَإِنْ كَانَ شَرًّا فَشَرّ).
‘Indeed Allaah Ta’ala said: I am as my worshipper’s thought/ assumption is of me, if that assumption is of good, then he will have good, if that thought/assumption is of evil,  then he will have evil.’

[From the khutbah: Tadhkeer bi asbaab inshiraa as-Sadr]

من أعظم أسباب ضيق الصدور: إساءة العبد ظنه بربه.

▪️قال الشيخ الدكتور خالد بن ضحوي الظفيري حفظه الله تعالى:

فمن أعظم أسباب ضيق الصدور:
إساءة العبد ظنه بربه، فيظن أن الله تعالى لا يرزقه أو أن رزقه يذهب إلى غيره، أو أن الله لا يكشف غمّه ولا يزيل حزنه، فيبقى يعترض على الله تعالى ويتسخط على قضائه وقدره.

فكلما أحسنت أيها العبد ظنّك بربك كلما أزال همك وأعانك على دنياك ووفقك في آخرتك، فعَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللهِ الأَنْصَارِيِّ رضي الله عنه قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَبْلَ مَوْتِهِ بِثَلاَثَةِ أَيَّامٍ، يَقُولُ:
(لا يَمُوتَنَّ أَحَدُكُمْ، إِلاَّ وَهُوَ يُحْسِنُ الظَّنَّ بِاللهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ)
[رواه مسلم]

ومقام العبد عند ربه بحسب ظنه بربه، فعَنْ وَاثِلَةَ بْنِ الأسْقَعِ رضي الله عنه قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ: (إِنَّ اللهَ تَعَالَى يَقُولُ : أَنَا عِندَ ظَنّ عَبْدِي بِي ، إِنْ كَانَ خَيْراً فَخَيْر ، وَإِنْ كَانَ شَرًّا فَشَرّ).
[رواه الطبراني في الأوسط وصححه الألباني].
