23.42 Patience is to be observed at the first stroke of a calamity

٢٣۔٤٢ باب الصَّبْرِ عِنْدَ الصَّدْمَةِ الأُولَى

[Machine] "The statement of Umar, 'What a just leader he is, and what a great reward they have who, when afflicted by a calamity, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return." Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided.' And His saying, exalted is He, 'And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah]'.

وَقَالَ عُمَرُ ؓ نِعْمَ الْعِدْلاَنِ، وَنِعْمَ الْعِلاَوَةُ {الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُمْ مُصِيبَةٌ قَالُوا إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ أُولَئِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ صَلَوَاتٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ وَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُهْتَدُونَ}. وَقَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى: {وَاسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاَةِ وَإِنَّهَا لَكَبِيرَةٌ إِلاَّ عَلَى الْخَاشِعِينَ}.

The Prophet ﷺ said, "The real patience is at the first stroke of a calamity."
