Patience – The Superior Solution

Patience is undoubtedly the superior solution to all prob­lems as opting for the way of patience and tolerance, far from being a path of defeat or retreat, is a future-oriented plan. It amounts to a voluntary acceptance of reality. This means that, even after losing something, one has always to remember that one is still in possession of many other things by utilizing which one can build anew.

The Importance of Keeping Patience

A very important aspect of the keeping patience is that it helps one to take the trouble to acquaint himself with the standpoint of others, while impatience fosters in one to consider only his own harrow claims.

Simplicity

Simplicity is that state of living in which man has realized the purpose of his life and given it the utmost importance, while regarding everything else as secondary.

Spiritual Comfort

What disturbs the peaceful plan of nature is mainly traceable to the fact that people have become excessively materialistic. It is this thinking which leads to the exploitation of nature resulting in the disturbance of the peaceful plan of nature. If people opted for a path of moderation, they would soon discover that if earlier they were comfortable physically, now they are comfortable spiritually. And without doubt spiritual comfort is far better than material comfort.

The Patient Man

The patient man will attempt to solve problems only after making a proper assessment of the situation, and with a view to ultimate consequences. The impatient man will jump into the fray without any calculation whatsoever and – a prey to his own seething emotions – will remain blind to any adverse consequences.

Result Matters

The only criterion by which to judge whether one had planned one’s life well or not is to see the result. A plan which yields a negative result is not right, and a plan which yields a positive result is right. Examining an action by an ideal standard is not a wise thing. Wisdom lies in examining things in the light of the result.

Know the Difference

The formula to attain peace is very simple. Take your share without usurping that of others. Satisfy your desires without thwarting others and fulfill your ambitions without denying others the right to do likewise. In short, solve your own problems without creating problems for your fellow creatures.

The Secret of Success

Success is a matter of making decisions with a calm mind, without constant wavering and changing of the mind; acute observation, initiative, and unremitting attention to a vast number of petty details.  

Freedom in Islam

According to Islam that person is most precious who leads his life in this world in such a manner that despite facing all sorts of temptations he succeeds in overcoming them. Despite having the power to misuse his freedom, he refrains from doing so. Despite the possibility of leading an unprincipled life, he chooses of his own free will to be a man of principle. To identify such individuals, it is essential that an atmosphere of freedom prevail in the world. This is not possible under any other system.
