Muaz (ra) said that the Prophet (ﷺ) passed by a man who was saying:

“O Allah, I ask you for all of the blessing.” He asked the man whether he knew what all the blessing meant and he said that it meant admittance to paradise and safety from Hell. Then the Prophet (ﷺ) passed by another man who was saying: “O Allah! I ask you for patience”. The Prophet (ﷺ) said to him, "You have asked your lord for trial and difficulty over yourself. So, now ask him also for safety (aafiyah)". The Prophet (ﷺ) then came across a third man who said: “O owner of majesty and splendor!”. The Prophet (ﷺ) said to him, "Make a request!" (because you have called Allah by this great attribute).
