None is given a better gift than patience (sabr)

Question

Could you reference this Hadith?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whosoever would [try to] be patient Allah will give him patience, and no one is granted a gift better and more comprehensive than patience”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu), as part of a longer narration.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1469, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1053)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
