According to Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, the Prophet PBUH said,
'Whenever one of the faithful invokes blessings which involve no sin or the breaking up of a relationship, God is certain to grant one of three things.
Either He gives the supplicant His blessings in this world,
or He keeps them for him in the world hereafter,
or He saves him from some misfortune.'
His listener then said,

'God's blessings are boundless,'
