              Islam promotes and calls for all virtues. One of the most important virtues Islam calls for is the value of work and earning one’s living through lawful hard work. The tradition of the prophet stresses that “Those who spend their night fast asleep, exhausted by their day’s labour, are forgiven their sins”. Also the best food to be eaten is that earned through hard work. The prophet once said echoing the Quran, ‘ David used to work as a way of thanksgiving to Allah, they are few who thank Me.” The prophet himself took up various jobs. He tended sheep to the Makkans for some Qarareet. He worked in trade for Khadeeja. He was an honest workman. Also the prophet’s companions took up various professions.

    Associated with the value and virtue of labour is the value of patience. Patience means endurance. It is to forebear all the circumstances, whether good or bad. Patience is a bounty rewarded by Allah. Allah has praised patient people in the Holy Quran. One of Allah’s names and attributes is as-Saboor, which means the all-Patient. Allah also commanded His prophet to be patient. Also, Allah has commanded the believers and followers of Islam to be patient as well.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
