عن عبد الله بن عمرو قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: خصلتان من كانتا فيه كتبه الله شاكرا صابرا ومن لم تكونا فيه لم يكتبه الله شاكرا ولا صابرا من نظر في دينه إلى من هو فوقه فاقتدى به ونظر في دنياه إلى من هو دونه فحمد الله على ما فضله به عليه كتبه الله شاكرا وصابرا ومن نظر في دينه إلى من هو دونه ونظر في دنياه إلى من هو فوقه فأسف على ما فاته منه لم يكتبه الله شاكرا ولا صابرا (سنن الترمذي الرقم: 2512)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports, “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mention the following:

Two qualities are such that if one possesses them, Allah Ta‘ala will record him as a shaakir (one who is grateful) and a saabir (one who is patienct), and the one who does not possess these two qualities, Allah Ta‘ala will not record him as a shaakir nor a saabir. The person who looks at those who are higher than him in his deen (i.e. deeni progress) and follows them, and he looks at those who are lower than him in his worldly matters (i.e. worldly progress) and praises Allah Ta‘ala for the favors He (Allah Ta‘ala) has blessed him with over those people, then Allah Ta‘ala will record him as a shaakir and a saabir. And the person who looks at those who are lower than him in his deen (deeni progress), and he looks at those who are higher than him in his dunya (worldly progress), and feels grieved over those things of the dunya that he does not possess, then Allah Ta‘ala will not record him as a shaakir nor a saabir.”
