Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “The following words , if you were to travel for them, you would tire out the animal before acquiring the like of them: The servant should have hope in none except his Rabb, he should fear nothing except his sins, the one who does not know should not be shy to learn, the scholar should not be shy in saying, ‘Allah Knows best’ when he is asked about what he does not know and know that the position of sabr (patience) in respect to Iman is like the position of the head in respect to the body. Thus, when the head goes the body goes and when sabr goes, Iman goes.”
