(3) – باب الصبر
(3) – Patience and Perseverance

Riyad as-Saliheen 42

Ibn Mas'ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
After the battle of Hunain, Messenger of Allah ﷺ favoured some people in the distribution of spoils (for consolation). He gave Al-Aqra' bin Habis and 'Uyainah bin Hisn a hundred camels each and showed favour also to some more honourable persons among the Arabs. Someone said: "This division is not based on justice and it was not intended to win the Pleasure of Allah." I said to myself: "By Allah! I will inform Messenger of Allah ﷺ of this." I went to him and informed him. His face became red and he said, "Who will do justice if Allah and His Messenger do not?" Then he said, "May Allah have mercy on (Prophet) Musa (Moses), he was caused more distress than this but he remained patient." Having heard this I said to myself: "I shall never convey anything of this kind to him in future".

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال : لما كان يوم حنين آثر رسول الله ﷺ ناساً في القسمة، فأعطى الأقرع بن حابس مائة من الإبل، وأعطى عيينة بن حصن مثل ذلك، وأعطى ناساً من أشراف العرب وآثرهم يومئذ في القسمة. فقال رجل: والله إن هذه قسمة ما عدل فيها، وما أريد فيها وجه الله، فقلت : والله لأخبرن رسول الله ﷺ ، فأتيته فأخبرته بما قال: فتغير وجههه حتى كان كالصرف . ثم قال
" فمن يعدل إذا لم يعدل الله ورسوله؟ ثم قال: يرحم الله موسى قد أوذي بأكثر من هذا فصبر". فقلت: لا جرم لا أرفع إليه بعدها حديثاً. ((متفق عليه)) .
