Sheikh Najm ad-Dīn Kubrà is called the “saint-making Sufi” because of the profound influence his early teachings had on so many Sufis, including the father of poet Jalaluddin Rumi. One of the essential character dispositions of the spiritual path according to Hz. Kubrà is the cultivation of patience. As-Sabur or The Most Patient is one of the 99 Beautiful Names of the Divine in Islam. This morning we will explore Sufi teachings on the spiritual path, learning to practice and appreciate patience in these challenging times.
