Today as I was going through some old notes in my diary, I came across a few lines in which there was such a simple recipe for acquiring Sabr (patience) that I thought I should share it with all…
Patience is radiance which illuminates life but it cannot be acted upon except for those who are grateful and appreciative of the blessings of Allah.
But it is not possible to be grateful; except for those who have a deep focus on Allah.
And it is not possible to have this focus; except for those who remember Him.
And it is not possible to remember Him; except for those who do a lot of Zikr
And it is not possible to do a lot of zikr; except for those who properly plan for it.
May Allah make us of those who live with zikr, focus, gratitude and patience… ameen
