Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “A person shouldn’t open himself up to worry and regret, because that will upset him and spoil his life and maybe even his religion, that is why the Prophet ﷺ said about a person who has had something he dislikes happen to him even after carrying out all available means, ‘Don’t say, ‘If …,’ for (saying), ‘If …,’ opens (the door) to the deeds of Satan.’”
