Benefit: The Blessing of Safety and Security
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
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.
