A scholar said : “To have patience means that one’s common sense and religious motives are stronger than one’s whims and desires. It is natural for people to have an inclination towards desires, but common sense and the religious motive should limit that inclination.
The two forces are at war : sometimes reason and religion win, and sometimes whims and desires prevail.
The battlefield is the heart of the man.”
[Imam Ibn al Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah RahimahuAllah]
