As-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah...... Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim...
Allaah has granted three exclusive gifts to those who are patient:
1. His blessings
2. His mercy
3. His guidance
“[They are those] who, when disaster strikes them, say: 'Indeed we belong to Allaah and indeed to Him we will
return.' Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided.”
Imaam Ahmad, may Allaah have mercy upon him, reported that ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattaab, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “The best type of life (we lived) was when we were patient.”
