Peace, one and all…

Sahl ibn Abdullah (God sanctify his secret) described patience in the following manner:

‘Patience means maintaining patience within patience, that is to say, not being conscious of one’s own patience; not wailing in affliction; and being aware that this power of patience is from God, Who has conferred it upon one, thereby enabling one to maintain it, as where He enjoins: ‘Have patience, for your patience is only through the help of God’ [Quran 16:127]
