Lectures broadcasted at the Islamic Center of Palm Beach during Ramadan 1437 (2016) on the topic of Patience and Gratitude from a treatise written by the great scholar, Imam Ibnu Qayyim al-Jawziyyah.
Excerpt from the translation:
"The present text is an abridged translation of Ibn al-Qayyim’s famous work, ‘Uddat as-Sâbirîn wa Dhâkhirat ash-Shâkirîn (literally, The Equipment of the Patient and the Investment of the Grateful). This work deals with the closely-related topics of patience and gratitude. Although often translated as “patience”, the Arabic word sabr has a broader and deeper meaning than the English. Depending on the context, it may mean fortitude, patience, equanimity, forbearance, patient endurance, etc. Shukr may be translated as “gratitude” or "thankfulness". As is shown in the book, patience and gratitude are two sides of the same coin, closely-related attitudes which the Muslim should seek to foster in every aspect of his or her life."
Lecture broadcasted at the Islamic Center of Palm Beach, Florida USA on Ramadan 1437 (June 2016) in cooperation with Masjid Tawheed (Stone Mountain, GA, USA).
