Patience…

patience

I looked at all friends, and did not find a better friend than safeguarding the tongue.

I thought about all dresses, but did not find a better dress than piety.

I thought about all types of wealth, but did not find a better wealth than contentment in little.

I thought of all types of good deeds, but did not find a better deed than offering good advice.

I looked at all types of sustenance, but did not find a better sustenance than patience.

~ Umar bin Al- Khattab Radliyallahu ‘Anhu ~
