    Default صبر جميل


    ‘Beautiful Patience’



    Allah tells us in surat al maarij [Chap 70]:

    فَاصْبِرْ صَبْرًا جَمِيلًا

    Therefore [O Believer] endure all adversity with beautiful patience.

    And this is a فعل أمر (Verb of Command) a command for us from Allah, so we must learn its meaning and try to practice it.

    The phrase صبر جميل (sabrun jameel – Beautiful Patience) is most famous from the saying of Prophet Yaqoob (Jacob) – alayhi salam – upon hearing the news of his son Yusuf, as told in Surah Yusuf:

    فَصَبْرٌ جَمِيلٌ وَاللّهُ الْمُسْتَعَانُ عَلَى مَا تَصِفُونَ

    But [as for myself,] patience in adversity is most goodly [in the sight of Allah]; and it is to Allah [alone] that I pray to give me strength to bear the misfortune which you have described to me.”


    Here some explanations are given as to the meaning of ‘beautiful patience’ and what makes it different than just any normal bit of patience or low level of patience:

    Mujahid said: ‘Beautiful Patience is patience without any panic.’

    Amr bin Qays said ‘Beautiful Patience means to be content with adversity and to surrender to the will of Allah.’

    Yunus bin Yazid said: ‘I asked Rabiah bin Abdurrahman: ‘What is the ultimate of patience?’ He said ‘to be outwardly the same at the time of affliction as one was the day before it struck.’ [this does not mean that a person does not or should not feel pain or anguish: patience in this instance means that one refrains from panicking and complaining.]

    Commenting on the meaning of beautiful patience, Qiyas bin al Hajjaj said: 'The person who is suffering from some afflictions should behave in such a way that nobody is able to distinguish him from others.'

    Ibn Qayyim’s 'Uddat as-Sabareen dhakhirat ash-shakireen



    رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا
    Our Lord, Pour out patience onto us!

    And verily for everything that a slave loses there is a substitute, but the one who loses Allah will never find anything to replace Him.

    This is Muhammad Ibn Abdulrahman Al Arifi. He's an amazing shaykh mashaa'Allah.

    A Little Patience Goes a Long Way



    Ibn Rajab rahimahullaah said: (1)

    ولا بد للمؤمن من صبر قليل حتى يصل به إلى راحة طويلة

    and its incumbent upon the believer to have a little patience in order to reach by way of it to a lengthy rest.

    فإن جزع ولم يصبر فهو كما قال ابن المبارك

    من صبر فما أقل ما يصبر ومن جزع فما أقل ما يتمتع

    If he gets impatient then he is,
    as has been said by Ibn al-Mubaarak:

    Whoever exercises patience,
    then how little is the patience he will have to exercise.
    And whoever is impatient,
    then how little is the enjoyment he will have.
    :


    وكان الإمام الشافعي رحمه اللَه ينشد
    يا نَـفـسُ مــا هِـــيَ إلاّ صَـــبـــرُ أَيّامِ
    كَــأَنَّ مُـدَّتَــهـــا أَضــغــاثُ أَحــلامِ
    يا نَـفْـسُ جـــوزي عَـنِ الـدُنــيا مُـبـادِرَةً

    وَخَــلِّ عَـنـهـا فَـإِنَّ الـعَـيشَ قُــدامـــي


    al-Imaam ash-Shaafiee rahimahullaah -
    used to recite (the following verses of poetry):

    O my soul! It is not, except a few days of patience;
    As if the extent were but a few dreams.
    O my soul! Pass quickly on through this world;

    And leave it, for indeed life lies ahead of it. (2)
