The Prophet's Patience and Bearing Hardships
The Prophet said: 'Succour comes with patience, relief comes with trouble and ease comes with difficulty.' 286
He also said: 'Patience is a veil from troubles and an aid against misfortunes.' 287 He also said: 'Patience is the best vehicle. Never did God provide any of his servants anything better or vaster than patience.' 288 He used to say: 'Faith is composed of two parts: one part patience and one part gratitude.' 289
