The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The verse “But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant!” (al-Muddathir, 74:7) means “be patient for your Lord’s cause, that is, no matter how much hardship you can experience, no matter how much torment you can see because you want to fulfill your religious duties, just be patient for your Lord’s decision.” (see Elmalili Hamdi, Hak Dini).

Mujahid and Ibn-i Zaid explained this verse as follows: “O Muhammad, be patient about hardships you are going to encounter during your call, for the sake of your Lord.

Ibrahim an-Nahai explained it as follows: “Do not expect remuneration for what you give. Be patient about them for the sake of Lord and do sacrifice.” (Tabari, the interpretation of the related verse)
