Patience quotes-Imam al-Ghazali

“Desires make slaves out of kings and patience makes kings out of slaves.”
“In the intricate paths of life, when difficulties and hardships confront a man, and the darkness and difficulty of suffering becomes long, it is patience only that acts as a light for a Muslim, that keeps him safe from wandering here and there, and saves him from the muddy marsh of disappointment, desperation and frustration.”
“If you see God withholding this world from you, and inflicting more and more hardships and suffering upon you, you must therefore know that you are noble in His sight, that you hold a lofty rank in His presence, and that He is making you tread the path of His saintly friends, for He sees you and He does not need that (withholding of this world…). You have surely heard His saying:‘So wait patiently for your Lord’s decree, for you are surely in Our sight.’(52:48)”
-Imam al-Ghazali
