Six ingredients to remedy a loss/affliction.
” The first is to have a firm trust in Allah.
The second is resigning oneself to the inescapable fact that everything that is decreed will happen and will follow its unalterable course.
The third is that patience has no substitute for the positive effect it has on the afflicted.
The fourth is an unwavering belief in the implications of this phrase ‘Without showing forbearance, what will I accomplish?’
The fifth is to ask myself, ‘Why should I be a willful party to my own destruction?’
The sixth is knowing that from one hour to the next, circumstances are transformed and difficulties vanish.”
Taken from ‘Don’t be sad’ By Shaykh Aidh al-Qarni
