O Allah! Make me one who is most
patient and grateful; and make me small

others.

you to your knees, your
are in the perfect
position to pray.

Psychology Connection
• DELAYED GRATIFICATION –
ability to resist the
temptation for an earlier
reward and wait for a
reward later on (SelfControl)
• In our brain, we have the
reward circuitry and when
we control ourselves from
acting on our emotions, this
benefits our behaviour in
life
LESSONS
• SABR does NOT mean being passive
• Be active, get help, keep doing what you’re
doing and ALSO ask for Allah’s help without
complaining or haste

Who, when disaster strikes them, say,
"Indeed we belong to Allah , and
indeed to Him we will return."
The Prophet s.a.w said , "If any Muslim man or
woman suffers a calamity and keeps it in his
memory, even if it happened a long time ago,
saying each time it is remembered, "Inna
lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un" ('We belong to
Allah and to Him do we return,') Allah, who is
Blessed and Exalted will give a fresh reward
each time it is said, equivalent to the reward
when it happened."
(Tirmidhi, Ahmad and Bayhaqi)
And we all know the famous incidence
about the companion Abu Talha and
his wife when one of the sons died and
Abu Talha was not at home. She
washed and shrouded him and when
Abu Talha came home and asked
about his son, she said, 'The child is
quiet and I hope he is in peace….'
(Bukhari)

Indeed, those who conceal what We sent
down of clear proofs and guidance after
We made it clear for the people in the
Scripture - those are cursed by Allah
and cursed by those who curse

they know when asked about it will have a bridle of fire
put on them on the Day of Resurrection"
(Abu Dawud; At-Tirmidhi)

themselves and make evident [what they

Indeed, those who disbelieve and die while
they are disbelievers - upon them will be

Muslims and non-Muslims, so take
advantage of that before you are
removed far from His Mercy
