No human is immune from physical pain in this world. No one is immune from emotional pain and stress either. We face difficult experiences, endure hardship and suffering, and at the end of it all – is death.
Allah Ta’ala says in the Quran Majeed, “Those who are patient in adversity will be recompensed beyond all measure.” The Quran also says, “Allah loves those who are patient in adversity.”
One could ask, why are we told to be patient in the face of adversity? Why are we told we will receive a reward for doing so? How should we practice patience and with what intention? What is the benefit a Mumin derives from practicing patience in this life?
Syedna TUS answers these questions in this Majlis, the 25th in the Majalis al Hikma series.
