This Hadith tells that if you have rulers who deny your rights and give themselves and their relatives
preference over you then patience is a better recourse. Rather than revolting against them, you should seek pardon
and forgiveness from Allah and pray for His Protection against the mischief and tyranny of the rulers provided they
do not show outright disbelief.

Usaid bin Hudhair (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that: A person from among the Ansar said, "O
Messenger of Allah! You appointed such and such person and why do you not appoint me?'' Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) said,
"After me you will see others given preference to you, but you should remain patient till you meet me
at the Haud
(Al-Kauthar in Jannah)".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
1. The prophecy of the Prophet (PBUH) came true, which is a miracle as well as an evidence of his truthfulness.
2. The Haud (
) mentioned here is Haud Al-Kauthar which is granted to the Prophet (PBUH) in Jannah or in the
field where people will be assembled on the Day of Resurrection. There he will offer his followers cups of pure
drink with his own hands. It will be such that one who would take it will never feel thirst again.
3. Demand for an office is not a pleasant quality. It is, therefore, prohibited to give office to a person who demands
it. It is, however, permissible only in case a person feels that he is more competent than others and there is no one
else in view who is more intelligent, capable and pious.

53. `Abdullah bin Abu Aufa (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) at one
time when he confronted the enemy, and was waiting for the sun to set, stood up and said,
"O people! Do not long
for encountering the enemy and supplicate to Allah to grant you security. But when you face the enemy, show
patience and steadfastness; and keep it in mind that Jannah lies under the shade of the swords.''
Then he invoked
Allah, saying,
"O Allah, Revealer of the Book, Disperser of the clouds, Defeater of the Confederates, put our enemy
to rout and help us in over-powering them".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
1. Although great stress has been laid on full preparation and readiness for Jihad, it is prohibited to wish for war with
2. Patience is a great weapon of a Muslim. In the context of Jihad, it means steadfastness, fortitude and fearlessness
of death in the battlefield.
3. Muslims are ordained not to rely entirely on weapons, material resources and their military prowess. They are
advised to pray to Allah for victory over their enemy.
