Tired and in pain.. I’m reminded of this saying of al-Hasan al-Basree rahimahullaah: “People are the same in health but when hardship befalls they show distinction.”
May Allaah increase us in sabr.
Sometimes you’re so close to giving up, and thats when something hits you and you get up, carrying on stronger than before. But one thing that frustrates me is when people say, “be patient..” and with that they expect you to simply forget about the pain (whether emotional or physical) you’re going through. That’s not patience. You can’t not feel hurt when you’re hurting. But you can practice patience by accepting the decree of Allaah and placing your trust in Him. Patience does not eliminate pain, which is why the one who practices patience is so dear to Allaah but it makes bearing it more pleasurable.. wAllaahu a`lam.
