Patience: three stages – La paciencia: tres grados


 
Patience has three stages: first, it means that [God’s] servant ceases to complain, and this is the stage of repentance; second, he becomes satisfied with what is decreed, and this is the rank of the ascetics; third, he comes to love whatever his Lord does with him, and this is the stage of the true friends of God.

Abu Talib Al-Makki

 

…………………………………………………………….

La paciencia tiene tres grados: en el primero, el sirviente de Dios deja de quejarse, y éste es el estado del arrepentimiento; en el segundo, aquel se siente satisfecho con lo que ha sido decretado, y éste es el estado de los ascetas; en el tercero, llega a amar todo lo que su Señor hace con él, y éste es estado de los verdaderos amigos de Dios.

– Abu Talib Al-Makki
