Ramadan Lessons in Flexibility – A Khutbah

مَثَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِ كَالْخَامَةِ مِنْ الزَّرْعِ ‏ ‏تُفَيِّئُهَا ‏ ‏الرِّيحُ مَرَّةً وَتَعْدِلُهَا مَرَّةً وَمَثَلُ الْمُنَافِقِ كَالْأَرْزَةِ لَا تَزَالُ حَتَّى يَكُونَ ‏ ‏انْجِعَافُهَا ‏ ‏مَرَّةً وَاحِدَةً

“The example of the believer is like that of a plant which is continually bent over by the wind; the believer is continually beset with afflictions. The example of a hypocrite is like that of the cedar tree, which does not yield until it is uprooted in one go.” Related by Imam Muslim.
