Is there a hadith which is translated as “Do not summon troubles?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

We could not find this statement in the sources. However, there are certain narrations which remind that meaning:

When the Prophet, peace and blessings upon him, heard someone say, “O my Lord! I ask for patience from you.” He said, “You asked for trouble from Allah. Ask for wellbeing from Him!” (Tirmidhi, Daawat, 91 )

The Prophet (PBUH) said, “It is not appropriate for a Believer to denigrate his/her self to despicableness.” When people asked what “one’s denigrating one’s self to despicableness” meant, he said: “One’s setting oneself as target for troubles which one cannot undertake is to denigrate his/her self to despicableness.” (Tirmidhi, fitan, 67; Ibn Maja, fitan, 31) 

Abu Hurayra narrates: “Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) would take refuge in Allah against encountering difficult troubles, falling into ordeals, evil accidents and against falling into situations which make enemies happy.” (Bukhari, Daawat, 28)

There are hadiths which advise people to take refuge in Allah against the same situations. (Bukhari, Qadar, 13)
