Sabr and Shukr only come when one adopts the company of those who possess these qualities. The one who learns how to live life in this manner, will also learn how to die in this manner. As we travel though life we find ourselves in one of two situations. Either something good is happening in our lives and in which case - as Muslims- our role is to thank Allah for the blessing. Or something bad is happening to us, something we dislike and our role here is to be patient (Sabr). This is the formula for a happy life, a life cruising towards the pleasure of Allah. Sabr or Shukr, the worry stops here.
