This week's Jumuah Naseehah is from chapter 15 of 'Patience and Gratitude' by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah:



CHAPTER FIFTEEN
Patience in the Qur’an


Imam Ahmad (may Allah bestow His mercy upon him) said: Allah has mentioned patience in the Qur’an in ninety instances.
We mention here some texts in where patience is dealt with as follows:
References to patience:
1- Patience is a Command:
Allah says,
{But thou be patient, for thy patience is but with the Help of Allah}
(An-Nahl: 127)
{Now await in patience the command of the Lord.}
(At-Tur: 48)
2- Shunning its opposite, i.e. impatience:
Allah says,
{And be in no haste about the unbelievers.} (1)
(AL-Ahqaf: 35)
_________________________________
1. Prophet Muhammad is commanded not to be impatient either about the success of his mission or the punishment of those who oppose it.(Translator)



{So lose not heart; nor fall into despair.}
(Al ‘Imran: 139)
{And be not like the companion of the fish} (1)
(Al-Qalam: 48)

3- Prosperity depends on one’s patience:
Allah says,
{O ye who believe persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah; that ye may prosper.}
(Al-‘Imran: 200)
Prosperity is dependant on patience, perseverance, constancy, self-restraint and refusing to be subjected.

4- The patient one’s reward is twofold:
Allah says,
{Twice they will be given their reward, for that they have persevered in patience.}
(Al-Qasas: 54)
Sulaiman Ibn Al-Qasim said: Rewards of all acts are knwn except for patience that is because Allah says,
{Those who patiently persevere will truly receive their reward without measure.}
(Az-Zumar: 10)

5- Religious leadership is based on patience and certainty:
Allah says,
{And we appointed, from among them, leaders, giving guidance under Our command, so long as they persevered with patience.}
(As-Sajdah: 24)

6- Obtaining the company of Allah:
Allah says,
{For Allah is with those who patiently persevere.}
(Al-Baqarah: 153)
Abu ‘Ali Ad-Daqqra said: Those who are patient are honored both in this world and the Hereafter, for Allah has granted themHis providence.

7- The glad tidings of three things for them only:
Allah says, {but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere, who says, when afflicted with calamity: “To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return”. They are on those on whom (descend) blessings from their Lord, and mercy, and they are the ones that receive guidance.}
(Al-Baqarah: 155-157)
An early Muslim was once consoled during affliction, he said: Why should not I keep patience while Allah has promised me three things, which is better than all the word.
8- Patience is assistance and equipment:
Allah says,
{Nay seek (Allah’s) Help with patient perseverance and prayer.}
(Al Baqarah: 45)

9- Patience and consciousness of Allah result in victory:
Allah says,
{Yea, if ye remain firm, and act right, even if the enemy rush here on you in hot haste, your Lord would help you with five thousand angels clearly marked.}
(Al ‘Imran: 125)
It is reported by Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) that the Prophet (pbuh) said, Behold! Victory comes with patience.”

10- Patience and consciousness of Allah are the most powerful shields against the enemy’s plots.
Allah says,
{But if ye are patient and do right, not the least harm will their cunning do to you.}
(Al ‘Imran: 120)

11- The angels greet those who are patient in Paradise:
Allah says,
{And angels shall enter unto them from every gate (will the salutation) “peace unto you for that ye persevered in patience.}
