a few days ago i was reading one thing that helps make sabr is remembering life is short. I thought about finding an article on it or hadith, quote etc.. Not sure i really succeeded..
Anyways was reading something earlier on a blog “Attitudes to adopt on bad days.” etc well one of the first one was to remember its short lived. This reminded me of the story about the King (I think) who had or was given a ring with the words described on it : “THIS TOO SHALL PASS”. Thus whenever he was perplexed, stressed etd he would look at his ring and take comfort. So i posted my little comment @ above.
Anyways after that I thought to myslef “Maj we are told life is short..very short although it appears long to us,, thus even if a problem or worry endures for a period of time, in reality its nothing and not worth getting to stressed over and remembering No matter how big a sinner you are..Allah Says ” Don’t despairs of my Mercy” and He says “Don’t despair of my forgiveness.”. So like don’t get stuck in a heap of stress be optimistic and ask for ALlahs grace and Goodness.
This reminds me of somethng..contemplate Gods Grace.. A prison is full of rapists, murderers, paedophiles, drug pushers, thieves, etc.. God even feeds, clothes and houses them. Subhanallah. And if they were to bring Shahadah in the prison..God would forgive them and elevate them in there too.
