Pearl of Wisdom

when asked about the [meaning of the] saying of Abu Dharr: There are three things that people hate but I love: I love death and I love poverty and I love tribulation , said, 'This is not as they have understood it. What he meant is that death in the obedience of Allah is more beloved to me than a life of disobedience to Allah; poverty in the obedience of Allah is more beloved to me than wealth [accompanied] with disobedience to Allah, and tribulation [accompanied] with obedience to Allah is more beloved to me than good health with disobedience to Allah.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Ma 'ani al-Akhbar, p. 165, no. 1

In the Holy Qur'an


Successful indeed are the believers who are humble in their prayers (23:1-2)

In the Traditions


O God,

bless Muhammad and His Household,
delight my soul through Thy decree,
expand my breast through the instances of Thy decision,
give to me a trust through which i may admint
that Thy decree runs only to the best,

and let my gratitude to Thee
for what Thou hast taken away from me
be more abundant than my gratitude to Thee
for what Thou hast conferred upon me!

Preserve me from imagining any meanness
in someone who is destitute
or imagining any superiority
in someone who posseses wealth,

for the noble is he
whom obedience to Thee has ennobled
and the exalted is he
whom worship of Thee has exalted!
