Benefit: The Blessing of Safety and Security

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān:

وَإِذْ قَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ رَبِّ اجْعَلْ هَٰذَا بَلَدًا آمِنًا وَارْزُقْ أَهْلَهُ مِنَ الثَّمَرَاتِ مَنْ آمَنَ مِنْهُم بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ
And (remember) when Ibrāhīm said, "My Lord, make this (Makkah) a secure city and provide its people with fruits - whoever of them believes in Allāh and the Last Day."
[Sūrah al-Baqarah, 2:126]

He (Ibrāhīm) began with supplicating for security before supplicating for provision because security is a necessity and the people would not be able to enjoy their provisions in a state of fear. Actually, it is not even possible to attain provisions in a state of fear.
