And so, my impatient soul!
You are charged with being patient in three respects.
One is patience in worship.
Another is patience in refraining from sin.
And a third is patience in the face of disaster.
If you are intelligent, take as your guide the truth apparent in the comparison in this Third Warning. Say in manly fashion:
“Ya Sabr (O Most Patient One!)”, and shoulder the three sorts of patience.
If you do not squander on the wrong way the forces of patience Almighty Allah has given you, they should be enough for every difficulty and disaster. So hold out with those forces!
21TH WORD, Said Nursi
