A Selection of Sayings on Forbearance and Gratitude from “A Light in the Heavens”
On the auspicious occasion of Milad un Nabi, we are pleased begin this section featuring select hadith from Yaquqatu Dawatil Haqq Shehzadi Dr Bazat Tahera Baisaheba’s excellent edition and translation of Rasulullah’s SA Hadith compiled by the Fatimid jurist al-Qadi al-Quda’i “al-Shihab al-Nabawi”. The book “Light in the Heavens” follows Shehzadi Tahera Baisaheba’s publication of “Treasury of Virtues.” As Rabiul Awwal is also the month of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin’s RA Urus Mubarak, this selection of hadith is on sabr and shukr – forbearance and gratitude. Click here to read Shehzada Dr Aziz Bhaisaheb Qutbuddin’s article in which he wrote, “As we approach Syedna Burhanuddin’s Urus Mubarak, it is the time for Shukur – remembrance of and gratitude for his countless ihsanaat and bounties— and it is also the time for Sabar – fortitude and forbearance. “
“Faith has two halves: gratitude and forbearance”
الايمان نصفان نصف شكر ونصف صبر
Sabr – Forbearance
“Forbearance is half of faith, conviction the whole”
الصبر نصف الايمان واليقين الايمان كله
There is no faith better than modesty and forbearance
ولا ايمان كا الحياء والصبر
"Swallow your anger when you are provoked and drink from the cup of forbearance when disaster strikes – this is most beloved of God"
وما من جرعت أحب الئ الله من جرعت غيظ كظمها رجل أو جرعت صبر على مصيبة
Shukr – Gratitude
“To speak of favors received is to show gratitude”
التحدث بالنعم شكر
“Those who praise an act of generosity have shown gratitude; those who keep silent are ingrates”
من أولي معروفا فلم يجد جزاء إلا الثناء فقد شكره ومن كتم فقد كفر
“Those who thank people best thank God best”
ان أشكر الناس لله أشكرهم للناس
