Patience and What Prevents It

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

[When] Allāh has given a person patience, He has provided him protection from becoming dissatisfied, restless, and annoyed; He has given him tranquility of heart, purity of soul, and peace of mind. Allāh, glorified be He in His perfection, says:

{إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى الصَّابِرُونَ أَجْرَهُمْ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ}

Only those who are patient will be rewarded unrestrictedly. (Al-Zumar 10, extracted)

Meaning: their reward is not limited [to a specific amount].

And a person is only held back from having patience by a few things, among which are: having love of the present life in this world, being afraid of losing some wealth or provisions, and being weak about putting one’s trust in Allāh.
