PASSION AND PATIENCE


It is said, “Verily passion turns kings into slaves, and patience turns slaves into kings” Do you not see the story of Yusuf (pbuh) and Zulaykha.? The passion of the latter ruined her honor while the patience of Yusuf (pbuh) raised him to the greatest of heights both in terms of success and honor.














The soul is the mount on which we ride to Paradise or Hell-Fire, and patience is its rein. Without a rein, the animal may redirect its course. — Ibn al-Qayyim
