if they are patient.

Usamah bin Zaid (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: A daughter of the Prophet (PBUH) sent a
message to him that her son was at his last breath, and requested him to come to her. The Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) sent back the informer saying:
"To Allah belongs what He takes and what He gives, and everything has a
limited period (in this world). So ask her to endure patiently, and expect the reward of Allah.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith exhorts us to keep self-composure at a moment of tribulation. The Prophet's daughter
mentioned in this Hadith is Zainab (May Allah be pleased with her). See the Commentary on Hadith No. 29.
