Continuation of Chapter 2 Al-Baqarah (سورة البقرة)
(The Cow)



بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
2:153
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاةِ إِنَّ اللهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ
O ye who believe! seek help with patient perseverance and prayer: for Allah is with those who patiently persevere.
  • See ii. 45 and n. An additional meaning implied in sabr is self-restraint. Haqqani defines it in his Tafsir as following Reason and restraining Fear, Anger, and Desire. What can be a higher reward for patience, perseverance, self-restraint and constancy than that God should be with us? For this promise opens the door to every kind of spiritual well-being.
