It Won’t Last Forever…

“Hardships have an end whose time is known only to God. So, anyone experiencing them has no choice but to be patient until that time is up. Losing patience before that time will not help anything.

Patience is a must, but it is useless without prayer. The one praying should not be hasty, and should instead engage in worship through patience, prayers, and submission to the All-Wise…the hasty one is infringing on the function of the Planner, and this is not the proper position of a servant to be in.

The best position to be in is to accept your fate, and this demands patience. To beg constantly in prayer is the most reliable recourse. Opposition to fate is forbidden, and infringes on the function of the Planner. Understand these points, and your hardship will be much easier to deal with…”

Ibn al-Jawzi  in ‘Sayd al-Khatir’ (p. 148)
