'O Allah, I take refuge with You lest I should stray or be led astray, or slip or be tripped, or oppress or be oppressed, or behave foolishly or be treated foolishly.’
slip: i.e. to commit a sin unintentionally
I have friends that I out grew
None new will ever fill one shoe,
Of my friends that I out grew.
Surah Al-Hajj, Verse 11:
وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ حَرْفٍ فَإِنْ أَصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ اطْمَأَنَّ بِهِ وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ فِتْنَةٌ انقَلَبَ عَلَىٰ وَجْهِهِ خَسِرَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةَ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ
And among people is he who serves Allah (standing) on the verge, so that if good befalls him he is satisfied with it, but if a trial afflict him he turns back ; that person loses this world as well as the hereafter; that is the clear loss.
