About the Book:
This well-known author, one of Ibn Taymiyyah's students, explains the nature of sabr(patience, fortitude) and its counterpart, shukr(gratitude) in a practical fashion, showing how these important spiritual qualities may be incorporated into everyday life. Although the original Arabic text was written over six centuries ago, the author’s words are even more relevant today.
An Excellent Book Specially in today's world when life is in such haste that sometimes we forget the Importance and the necessity of Patience and gratitude.
