Don’t just be patient, be patient and along with that hope for a reward from Allaah for your patience during your calamity

December 24, 2011 § 5 Comments


Shaikh Ibn Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Indeed when a person faces calamities with patience [but] without hoping for a reward from Allaah, the calamity will become an expiation for his sins.  And if he shows patience along with hoping for a reward [from Allaah], then along with being an expiation for his sins it becomes a good recompense and reward.  And the meaning of hoping for Allaah’s reward [al-Ihtisaab] is that a person believes that he will soon be rewarded for the patience [he is showing], so he makes good his thoughts about Allaah and thus Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, will give him [a reward] according to what he thought of Him.”

At-Ta’leeq alaa Saheeh Muslim, p. 342.
