فَاصْبِرْ صَبْرًا جَمِيلً
so endure patiently, with a beautiful patience. (QS. 70:5)
I always wondered how patience could possibly be beautiful
it is painful. it is tiring. it is suffering
patience is a constant state of effort
it is exhausting
but patience is simply trust
trusting Allah, despite the pain.
patience is giving up everything you love
for the One that loves you the most.
and… what could be more beautiful than that?
