The difference between a “believer” and a Christian is the presence and power of God’s Spirit working in those following Christ. Standing by a fire will warm a person up, but looking at it from afar will not. Likewise, we need the presence of God to transform us from the inside, or else the change will not last. The mark of salvation is our reaction to the message of the Gospel. After the Resurrection the two messages most needed by the church world are Repent (metanoia) and Love one another.

Pastor Melissa Scott exposed the truth about the person and the works of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 3 King James Version

1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,

6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Here I read the latest article from my blog on the concept of PATIENCE or SABR in Arabic.

The concept of patience is typically limited merely to meanings connected with enduring hardship; for me, it means much more than that.

Types of patience
There exists a stoical patience; the ability to meet the vicissitudes of life with equanimity. And – to be sure – remaining calm in the face of adversity is an aspect of what I have learned patience to be; but it is an incomplete definition.

Basically, it is too passive.

A fuller definition – for me at least – contains other aspects: fortitude (a resilience or hardiness); persistence (just doggedly carrying on); old fashioned hard work; good habits; and unflagging initiative.

I don’t believe anyone is born patient. I certainly wasn’t. And although a good example of patience in one’s father or other primary influencers in childhood is a strong advantage, no-one can learn patience for us or give it to us. It is earned as well as learned.

The problem is that there is no pleasant and easy way to learn it. It is by nature unpleasant. It is the itch you can’t scratch – borne long enough – which turns the grain of sand into a pearl.

But the work aspect of patience is lost by many. Whole swathes of my work since I began this project have required a stubborn, prosaic persistence. For example, I needed to replace all the footnote numbers with small superscript circles and enter the reference number as end notes. I repeated this painstaking, boring process – requiring exactitude and zero creativity – over 9,000 times. This took three full weeks of 14-hour days. That’s approximately 300 hours of adding circles.

And there have been many such tasks of comparable mind-numbing banality.

Of course, there are breakthroughs and insights as well – my work on the muqaṭṭaʾāt being an obvious case in point – but ṣabr has been for me 90% perspiration and only 10% inspiration.

Inspiration
Inspiration is overrated. Beethoven and Mozart were incomparable composers not because they were moved to do great work, but because they were at their desks every morning at the same time.

Isaac Asimov – the famously prodigious writer – kept to the same writing process all his career.

Asimov also attributed his success to the fact that he simply did not care what the critics said about him.

Asimov had ṣabr.

It is this creative, dogged type of habit – something which generates real output – that gets to the heart of what ṣabr means to me.

These three men – Beethoven, Mozart and Asimov – were all creative; they were productive. Yet if they had possessed ṣabr in the way most Muslims conceive of the term, they would have endured their hardships well enough – but they would have produced nothing.

The Qur’anic conception of ṣabr hints strongly – to my mind at least – at the generative form of patience, not the passive form.

Let us consider 10:109 as an example:

And follow thou what thou art instructed.
And be thou patient until God judges.
And he is the best of judges. (10:109)

Here, the prophet is exhorted to keep busy doing what he is commissioned to do; not simply to put up with hardship. He is called to be active, innovative, dynamic – for that is what following what God has instructed us entails.

And be thou patient
For God suffers not to be lost the reward of the doers of good. (11:115)

Here, again, the emphasis is on action: the reward of the doers of good. This is patience.

And be thou patient.
The promise of God is true.
And let not those who are not certain sway thee. (30:60)

Not everything is – or should be – fun and easy. Some things require work and persistence, they just do. And pretending otherwise is the path of the weak and foolish.

Reap the rewards
As the weeks and months pass and you keep sticking to the field you have decided to dig, you will start to become patient. And the more you dig your field – the more you invest your blood, sweat and tears in it – the more that ground becomes yours, and the less willing you will be to give it up.

And by the time the first shoots of the fruits of your labours begin to stick their heads above the soil, surrendering your patch of ground will be unthinkable.

I am grateful to God that I found my field and had the wit to start digging it. God’s earth is wide, and we are not all here to dig the same bit of it.

Find the bit you are meant to work; start working it and don’t stop until you see your fruits – and ṣabr will come of itself.

This is an autobiographical piece which aims to answer the following questions – questions I am often asked:
- Why do I believe in the Quran?
- Why do I not believe in the Jesus-alone "born again" version of Christianity?
- Why am I not a Traditionalist Muslim?
- Why do I insist on thinking for myself?
