What is the real patience

The fish said to the sea,:

“You can never see my tears, because I am in the water.”

The sea answered back,:

“But I can feel your tears, because you are in my heart.”

This is how we are;

No one will feel us except those who are truly close to our hearts.

Arwah bin al-Zubayr’s leg was cut because of the disease which he

suffered, and on the same day the dearest of his seven sons died.

The dearest son to his heart. He died after the horse kicked him

and killed him.

Arwah said: “Allahuma laka Al hamd, Waina Lillah Waina Ilehi


[Oh Allah, thank you, and we are from Allah and to Him shall

return] He gave me seven sons and He took one.

He gave me two legs and two hands and He took only one leg.

When Allah gives us calamities, He always Forgives our sins.

And when He takes away something, He always gives back

something better.

I ask Allah to join us together in Janna.

The days passed and one day Arwah entered the house of a

Khalifa, and saw a Sheikh who was old and had a face which is

damaged and eyes blind.

The Khalifa said: Oh Arwah ask this sheikh about his story. Arwah

asked him: What is your story, Oh Sheikh?

Sheikh said: Oh Arwah do you know that I was living in a valley?

And in that valley there was no one who was richer in money,

properties and children like me.

In one night floods came and washed away my children, properties

and everything that I earned.

The next day at sun rise I was only having a small baby and a


The camel ran away and I ran after him wanting to catch him but I

did not reach far and I heard the scream of a baby, I turned back

and saw the baby’s head in the mouth of a wolf.

I tried to save the baby but I couldn’t as the wolf had torn him

apart. As I was going away the wolf hit me lightly on my face. That

is why my face is damaged and my eyes are blind.

Arwah asked him: What did you say after all this, Oh Sheikh?

The Sheikh replied: I said Allahuma Laka Alhamd, You left with me

a heart and a tongue which will always mention You.

This is the real patience, these are those who Allah mentions them:

ﺇﻧﻤﺎ ﻳﻮﻓﻰ ﺍﻟﺼﺎﺑﺮﻭﻥ ﺃﺟﺮﻫﻢ ﺑﻐﻴﺮ ﺣﺴﺎﺏ

{only the patient will be paid back their reward in full without


What kind of calamities have you got until you become sad and

live in misery?

Can you compare their misery to yours?

They were patient and Allah Will Reward them, and we are

inpatient what will we get?!

Rabana Laka Alhamd Hamdan Katheeran Tayyiban Mubarakan Feeh.

You sleep on the (bed) of your own.

You eat and drink and go out and live safely!!
