EXHORT ONE ANOTHER TO BE STEADFAST

“…only one who is patient attains to a station where their heart is opened. One who does not exhibit patience seeks to rule over God and does not desire to remain under His rule. An insolent and bold person of this nature, who does not fear the glory and greatness of God Almighty, will be deprived and cut asunder…”

“Furthermore, their practice is ¹ tawaasaw bis-sabri, i.e. they exhort one another to be steadfast; that is to say, they exhort and advise others with patience. They do not become furious in an instant. If a Muslim cleric or leader becomes an Imam and a guide, and is quickly enraged, and if he does not possess the strength to act with tolerance and patience, why does he harm others? Another meaning of the above is that a person who does not patiently listen to advice, cannot gain any benefit. Our opponents do not come forward with a tolerant heart, and do not present their concerns with patience. In fact, their state of affairs is such that they do not even wish to look at the relevant book. They raise a commotion and seek to cloak the truth. How then can such people derive any benefit? What characterised Abu Jahl and Abu Lahab? It was this very impatience and frustration. They would demand that if you have come from God, then cause springs to flow before us. These unfortunate people did not show patience and were ultimately destroyed; after all, the Zubaida Canal did ultimately reach Mecca. Similarly, our opponents also demand that I should pray for them and it should instantly be fulfilled, deeming this to be the criterion of my truth or falsehood. They will present a few things which they would like to see happen and say that if they can be made to occur, they will accept, but they do not hold up any conditions for themselves. Alas! It is these very people who represent those described in ² laa yakhaafu ‘uqbaahaa (And God cared not for the consequences thereof ). Remember, only one who is patient attains to a station where their heart is opened. One who does not exhibit patience seeks to rule over God and does not desire to remain under His rule. An insolent and bold person of this nature, who does not fear the glory and greatness of God Almighty, will be deprived and cut asunder”.

(Malfoozat vol.1, pp. 199 – 200)
