best gift from Allah

  • 1 I will receive the best gift from Allah that is endurance.

    Abu Sa'id al-Khudri ( May Allah be pleased with him ) reported that some people from among the Ansar begged from the Messenger of Allah ( May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) and he gave them. They again begged him and he again gave them, till when what was in his possession was exhausted, he said:

    Whatever good (riches, goods) I have, I will not withhold it from you. He who refrains from begging Allah safeguards him against want. and he who seeks sufficiency, Allah would keep him in a state of sufficiency; and he who shows endurance. Allah would grant him power to endure, and none is blessed with an endowment better and greater than endurance.
