There is no quality that is
harder to adopt than patience, regardless of whether patience is required after
separation from a loved one or when unfavorable events occur. It is most
difficult to be patient when the period of waiting is prolonged or when hopelessness
takes over. During this period, one needs provisions, provisions that vary
according to the situation:
1. Sometimes you should look
at the level of hardship you are bearing and appreciate that things could have
2. Hope from Allah that He
recompenses you for your sufferings in this world.
3. Keep in mind the reward
of the Hereafter.
4. Know that anxiety and
restlessness are of no use.
Add to this list anything
else that may help you be patient during a period of hardship.
