*Sabr* is suppressing that angry voice in your head,

the one that wants to yell at people for being inconsiderate to your struggle.

*Sabr* is swallowing this voice, overcoming it, learning to channel it towards a heartfelt du'a instead.

*Sabr* is forgiving someone when they dismiss your feelings.

*Sabr* is meeting those who deserted you, with a smile on your lips, even though your tears are one step away from exposing you.

*Sabr* is staying silent because you’ve already stated your point too many times before.

*Sabr* is fulfilling the rights of others even when they transgress against yours.

*Sabr* is crying about your heartache in front of Allah and no one else.

*Sabr* is believing wholeheartedly that Allah has beautiful things in store for you.

*Sabr* is crawling forward even when you want to stop.

*Sabr* is an active state of being, it is not a theory to simply be discussed and forgotten.

And it is worth it. Every single second of it is so worth it because Allah loves the patient.

And it’s worth going through the worst of the worst if it means that it will gain you Allah’s love.

*A beautiful patience*
