How they lived: Ali Bin Abu Talib (Allah be pleased with him) said one who has no patience, has no faith

How they lived: Ali Bin Abu Talib (Allah be pleased with him) said one who has no patience, has no faith

From the lives of our pious predecessors:

IT is reported that Ali Bin Abu Talib (Allah be pleased with him) said, “Patience (Al-Sabr) to faith (Al-Iman) is like the head to the rest of the body: if the head is cut off, the body will rot. And one who has no patience, has no faith.”

– Al-Baihaqi, Shu’ab Al-Iman, vol. 12, pg. 195
