Allaah’s reward for patience

Source: Tafseer as-Sa’dee

“And (remember) Ayyub (Job), when he cried to his Lord: ‘Verily, distress has seized me, and You are the Most Merciful of all those who show mercy’ / So We answered his call, and We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his family to him (that he had lost) and the like thereof along with them as a mercy from Us and a Reminder for all those who worship Us”
~ Surat ul-Ambiyaa, 21:83-84

Shaykh ‘Abd ur-Rahmaan as-Sa’dee (rahimahullaah) comments:

“{as a mercy from Us} upon him, since he had been patient and was pleased, so Allaah rewarded him with a reward in the worldly life before the reward of the hereafter; {and a Reminder for all those who worship Us}, meaning, We made him an example for those who worship Us, those who benefit from lessons. So if they see the trial that had befallen him, then what Allaah rewarded him after it came to an end, and if they look at the cause, they will find it to be patience. This is why Allaah praised him with it in His saying: ‘We found him patient. How excellent a slave! Verily he was ever oft-returning in repentance (to Us)!’, so that (the slaves of Allaah) would take him as an example when hardship befalls them.”
