The advice of Hakim Luqman to his sons (part-14)
‘.Enjoin what is just and forbid what is wrong and bear with patience whatever befall you.’ (TMQ-21:17)
I have discussed the first part of this Quranic verse in my previous post. Hakim Luqman bestows on his son the advice of commanding what is right and prohibiting what is wrong. In the second part of this verse Hakim Luqman tells his son to be patient in every circumstance that he faces.
If we look at the word patience in a general sense, we find that that there are several Quranic verses which enlighten us about the virtues of patience.
For example, Allah (swt) says in the Holy Quran: ‘Peace unto you for that ye persevered in patience! Now how excellent is the final home; (TMQ-13:24)
However, the use of the word patience in verse 21:17 means that whoever sets forward on the journey of tableegh or commanding what is right and forbidding what is wrong, he is definitely going to meet with hurdles on his way
Iman Sadiq (as) has remarked about the qualities that should be present in a Daayi. He said, ‘If they oppose and offend him, he should exhibit patience and if they side with him and accept him and his words, he should thank (God), entrusting all his affairs to him. (Misbaah- al-shariah, pg. 362)
Thus, Hakim Luqman, who had been granted with wisdom by Allah (swt) knew that without being patient one cannot accomplish the mission of tableegh. Hence, he bestowed upon his son the useful advice to remain calm and steadfast.
