Then, she asked me a very good question. HOW to practise patience? (translated from "umiy, macamana nak 'sabar'?)
I told her : by remembering that Allah knows and Allah sees and Allah hears. Allah is observing how we are reacting, see if we are patient. So, on the positive side, we can get more pahala for this!...if we are patient. THAT's something to be happy about.
Then, we can also pity them (who distorted her name), because only childish and narrow minded people do these kind of things - it's a handicap we try to avoid having. InsyaAllah some kids will grow out of it - but there are others who carry the handicap throughout their adult life. Kesian kan?
When I was younger I was quite stubborn and emotional and sensitive sometimes. But now, I'm glad I am able to control any situation better than before. It may not be the best yet.. but better than before, masyaAllah (with Allah's will). When I find myself getting worked up over anything, I stop myself, I take a deep breath, and
Yes, it's quite simple really, when it sets in.
Oh, but.. terms and conditions apply.
Terms and conditions.
The person must believe in God and Judgement Day.
The person prays and remember God always. When he remembers God, God will remember him. And he will then be guided to the right and successful path, as God wills.
