Patience And Shukr During Trials And Tribulations, Ibn Hajr


Ibn Hajr said:

“Shukr comprises sabr (patience) upon obedience and away from disobedience.”

He (Ibn Hajr) then mentions that both are essential are in need of one another, then states:

“Whoever is in a state of receiving favours, it is obligatory upon him to show sabr (patience) and shukr, sabr from disobedience.

Whoever is in a state of trial, it is also obligatory upon him to show sabr and shukr, shukr by establishing the rights of Allaah during the trial. Indeed servitude is due to Allaah in times of tribulation and in times of ease.”

[Fath Al-Baaree, 11/311]
