“Be Patient and Paradise will be Yours”

Narrated Abu Said-Khudree (Ra):
Some Ansari persons asked for (something) from Allah’s Messenger (saw) and he gave them. They again asked him for (something) and he again gave them. And then they asked him and he gave them again till all that was with him finished. And then he (saw) said:

“If I had anything I would not keep it away from you. (Remember) Whoever abstains from asking others, Allah will make him contented, and whoever tries to make himself self-sufficient, Allah ill make him self-sufficient. And whoever remains patient Allah will make him patient. Nobody can be given a blessing better and greater than patience.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Also, Ata bin Rabah (RA) said: Ibn “Abbas said to me, “Shall I show you a woman of the people of paradise?” I said, “Yes” He said, “This black lady came to the Prophet (saw) and said, ‘I get attacks of epilepsy and my body becomes uncovered; please invoke Allah for me.’ The Prophet (saw) said (to her):

‘If you wish, be patient and Paradise will be yours’ and if you wish, I will invoke Allah to cure you.’

She said, ‘I will remain patient’ and added, ‘but I become uncovered, so please invoke Allah for me that I may not become uncovered.’ So he invoked Allah for her” [Sahih Bukhari]
