The Details of the Question
Can you explain the following verse: “But, for thy Lord's (Cause) be patient and constant!”(Al-Muddathir, 7)?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

But, for thy Lord's (Cause) be patient and constant!”(Al-Muddathir, 7)

In this verse, it is pointed that while the Prophet (pbuh) was doing His duties in order to warn people, he (pbuh) would face lots of problems. So, the Prophet was ordered to be patient with those problems for the sake of Allah.

However, Abraham an-Nahai also explained it as follows: “Do not expect something in return for the things that you gave. Be patient toward your Lord, make self-sacrifice.”

This verse is addressed to not only the Prophet but also the Muslims.
