Guided, sufficed & protected

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) teaches us in a hadith narrated by Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) that if someone leaves their house and says, “In the name of Allah, I trust in Allah, there is no might and no power except with Allah”, an angel will call out to him, saying: O servant of Allah, you have been guided to the straight path, you have been sufficed against your worries, and you have been protected from your enemies. So the devil assigned to him will move away from him, and another devil will say to the former: How can you misguide someone who has been guided, sufficed, and protected from all of the devils! Because he said those words, you cannot overpower him. (Recorded in at-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawood)
