THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
‘Abdullaah Ibn Mas‘ood (radiyallaahu ‘anhu) the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would supplicate:
"O Allaah, I ask You for guidance, piety, safety and well-being and contentment and sufficiency." [Alaahumma innee as’alukal hudaa wat-tuqaa wal-’afaafa wal-ghinaa] 
Imaam as-Sa‘dee (d.1376H) - rahimahullaah - said:
"This du‘aa (supplication) is from the most comprehensive and beneficial du‘aas (supplications), since it involves asking Allaah for well-being in regards to both the Religion and the world. Thus, al-hudaa (guidance) is beneficial knowledge, and likewise at-tuqaa (i.e. taqwaa) is righteous actions and leaving off what Allaah and His Messenger have forbidden; and this is (asking) for correctness and well-being of a persons Religion. For indeed the Religion comprises of beneficial knowledge and recognizing the truth - which is guidance - and standing firm upon obedience to Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and this is piety.
And al-‘afaafa (well-being and safety) and al-ghinaa (contentment and sufficiency) comprises being safe from (the harms of) the creation and that the heart is not attached to them. And it also comprises being content with Allaah and what He provides, and seeking whatever will cause the heart to be satisfied with Him. So with this, happiness in this worldly life is competed, and the heart tastes true sweetness and delight - and this is a goodly life. So whosoever is granted the provisions of guidance, piety and well-being has indeed achieved true happiness and has acquired all that could possibly be sought after, as well as being saved all that is dreadul and frightening."
