Endure with Patience


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhyi ad-Din Abu Muhammad ibn Abu Swalih ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.) said, as recorded in Jila’ al-Khathir, “Endure, with patience, the harm of the creatures and neighbours, for there is much good in patience.  All of you are Commanded to show patience, and are responsible for yourselves, and your flock.  The Prophet (s.a.w.) has said, ‘Each one of you is a shepherd, and responsible for his flock.’  Be patient with destiny until suffering transforms into bliss.  Patience is the foundation of good.  The angels were tested with afflictions, and they endured them with patience; and the prophets were tested with afflictions, and they endured them with patience.  You are following in the footsteps of the people of Allah (s.w.t.), so emulate their deeds, and endure the afflictions with patience.”
