Blessings of contentment, self-sufficiency, and patience; Patience is the ultimate blessing

bukhari:1469ʿAbdullāh b. Yūsuf > Mālik > Ibn Shihāb > ʿAṭāʾ b. Yazīd al-Laythī > Abū Saʿīd al-Khudrī

Some people from the Anṣār asked the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and he gave them. They again asked him and he gave them again until all that was with him finished. And then he said, "If I had anything, I would not keep it away from you. Whoever abstains from asking others, Allah will grant him contentment, and whoever tries to make himself self-sufficient, Allah will grant him self-sufficiency. And whoever remains patient, Allah will grant him patience. No one can be given a blessing better and greater than patience."  

البخاري:١٤٦٩حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ يُوسُفَ أَخْبَرَنَا مَالِكٌ عَنِ ابْنِ شِهَابٍ عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَزِيدَ اللَّيْثِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ ؓ

أَنَّ نَاسًا مِنَ الأَنْصَارِ سَأَلُوا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَأَعْطَاهُمْ، ثُمَّ سَأَلُوهُ فَأَعْطَاهُمْ، حَتَّى نَفِدَ مَا عِنْدَهُ، فَقَالَ: «مَا يَكُونُ عِنْدِي مِنْ خَيْرٍ، فَلَنْ أَدَّخِرَهُ عَنْكُمْ: وَمَنْ يَسْتَعْفِفْ يُعِفَّهُ اللَّهُ، وَمَنْ يَسْتَغْنِ يُغْنِهِ اللَّهُ، وَمَنْ يَتَصَبَّرْ يُصَبِّرْهُ اللَّهُ، وَمَا أُعْطِيَ أَحَدٌ عَطَاءً خَيْرًا وَأَوْسَعَ مِنَ الصَّبْرِ۔»

bukhari:6470Abū al-Yamān > Shuʿayb > al-Zuhrī > ʿAṭāʾ b. Yazīd > Abū Saʿīd

Some people from the Ansar asked Messenger of Allah ﷺ (to give them something) and he gave to everyone of them, who asked him, until all that he had was finished. When everything was finished and he had spent all that was in his hand, he said to them, '"(Know) that if I have any wealth, I will not withhold it from you (to keep for somebody else); And (know) that he who refrains from begging others (or doing prohibited deeds), Allah will make him contented and not in need of others; and he who remains patient, Allah will bestow patience upon him, and he who is satisfied with what he has, Allah will make him self-sufficient. And there is no gift better and vast (you may be given) than patience."

أَخْبَرَهُ أَنَّ أُنَاسًا مِنَ الأَنْصَارِ سَأَلُوا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَلَمْ يَسْأَلْهُ أَحَدٌ مِنْهُمْ إِلاَّ أَعْطَاهُ حَتَّى نَفِدَ مَا عِنْدَهُ فَقَالَ لَهُمْ حِينَ نَفِدَ كُلُّ شَىْءٍ أَنْفَقَ بِيَدَيْهِ مَا يَكُنْ عِنْدِي مِنْ خَيْرٍ لاَ أَدَّخِرْهُ عَنْكُمْ وَإِنَّهُ مَنْ يَسْتَعِفَّ يُعِفُّهُ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ يَتَصَبَّرْ يُصَبِّرْهُ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ يَسْتَغْنِ يُغْنِهِ اللَّهُ وَلَنْ تُعْطَوْا عَطَاءً خَيْرًا وَأَوْسَعَ مِنَ الصَّبْرِ

Whatever good (riches, goods) I have, I will not withhold it from you. He who refrains from begging Allah safeguards him against want. and he who seeks sufficiency, Allah would keep him in a state of sufficiency, and he who shows endurance. Allah would grant him power to endure, and none is blessed with an endowment better and greater than endurance.

Then they asked him again, and he gave to them until he used up what he had. Then he said, "What wealth I have, I will not hoard from you. Whoever has forbearance, Allah will help him. Whoever tries to be independent, Allah will enrich him. Whoever tries to be patient, Allah will give him patience, and no one is given a better or vaster gift than patience."

"مَا يَكُونُ عِنْدِي مِنْ خَيرٍ فَلَنْ أَدَّخِرهُ عَنْكُمْ، وإنَّهُ مَن يَسْتَعْفِفْ يُعِفَّهُ اللهُ، وَمَنْ يَسْتَغْن يُغنِهِ اللهُ، وَمن يتَصبَّرْ يُصبِّرْه اللهُ، وَمَا أُعْطِى أَحدٌ عَطاءً خَيرًا وأوْسعَ مِن الصَّبْر".
