Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan gives a mesmerizing lecture on the reflections from the Qur’an regarding Sabr. Sabr is impossible without Shukr.
Almost a hundred verses in the Qur’an command us to be patient and teach us about the blessings of patience. Anas RA said that the Prophet ﷺ said, “The real patience is at the first stroke of a calamity.”
Being patient is a part of belief in Allah. Many prophets like Nuh AS, Ibrahim AS, Musa AS, Ayyub AS, and Prophet Muhammad SAW set forward exemplary standards of patience in the wake of insults, humiliation, and torture.
Sabr and Iman go hand in hand. True righteousness is depicted when we exhibit patience or Sabr. Those who are patient are promised glad tidings by Allah on the Day of Judgement. It is through patience that Allah will save us from the punishment of Allah.
