20: If the Lockdown is Wearing You Down, 'Sabr' Is What You Need
Play • 13 min
Patience or 'sabr' is not just a word, but a practice. It could be understood as an inner mechanism that allows us to be accepting of everyday challenges without getting angry or agitated. If it's not for the hard times, we wouldn't have known what it means to practise 'sabr' or endurance.

You may feel that your speed is slowing down in the lockdown. But the only way to keep going is adjusting your expectations, and trying to embrace the reality of life.

Tune in for some ashaar of Anand Narayan Mulla, Parveen Shakir, and Josh Malihabadi. Also revisit 'The Tortoise and the Hare' in Urdu written by Ismail Merathi.
