Can I get a reference for this Hadith?

Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said:

I heard Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saying:

“If you all depend on Allah with due reliance, He would certainly give you provision as He gives it to birds who go forth hungry in the morning and return with full belly at dusk.”



Imams Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Ahmad (rahimahumullah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded this Hadith.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2344, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4164, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 1 pg. 30 and pg. 52)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
