Sacrifice

Reported by Jabir bin `Abdullah (RA): The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, “The dearest and the closest of you to me on the Day of Resurrection will be those who are the best in behaviour; and the most hateful and the farthest from me on the Day of Resurrection will be the talkative and the most pretentious and the most rhetorical.” [At-Tirmidhi].

One can never gain quality of manner without sacrificing. The level of sacrifice varies from one to another depending on what we have in our hands – money, time, effort and comfort. A believer will sacrifice all of these because he believes Allah can give him higher than all the above.

If we can sacrifice, Allah will give us comfort even if we have nothing.
