The Truthful

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, “The truthful person offers thanks for the Favours he receives, endured with patience the Punishments, carries out the Commandments, and keeps away from the Prohibitions.  This is how the hearts are developed.  Offering thanks for receiving Favours increases them, and enduring with patience the Punishments Removes, and mitigates them.  Endure with patience the death of your children, and other family members, the loss of property, being dishonoured, the failure of worldly interests, and the harm caused by the creatures and then you will receive a great deal of good.  When you give thanks for being in easy circumstances, and show patience in hard times, the wing of your faith will become fully fledged and strengthen and your heart and innermost being will fly to the door of your Lord.”
