The Patience Of Imam Hussain (AS) 4
Their prophet said to them, ‘Indeedthe sign of his kingship shall be that the Ark  will come to you, bearing tranquillity from your Lord and the relics left behind by theHouse of Moses and the House of Aaron, borne by the angels. There is indeed a signin that for you, should you be faithful.’
 The word Al Sakinah is the opposite of movement. When you are calm and at peace your hearthas Sakinah. The person who is not attached to this world when he does things tries to get good1 of 4
out of them. A believing person knows that his affairs are in the hands of God and not in hishands. The believer’s heart is at peace and such a person is at peace and has sakinah. Thosewho love this material world when they do things fear loss of their material things and their heartis restless. Such people do not have Sakinah.
Allamah Tabatabai in Tafsir Mizan says
 A believing man, because of his belief in Allah. relies on a firm support and an unshaken pillar of strength. He bases his life on true knowledge where doubt and confusion cannot intrude: setsforth in his actions in the light of divine commandments which he is sure are the most perfectguide. He knows that his affairs are not in his own hands: he is, therefore, not afraid of anypossible loss: and if any harm comes to him, he is not sorry about it. He is not puzzled when hehas to distinguish good from evil. The disbelievers do not have sakinah or peace. They make evil people (shaitans) their guardians. Allah says Surely We have made the Satans to be the guardians of those who do notbelieve (7:27). ...and whoever takes the Satan for a guardian rather than Allah, he indeed shallsuffer a manifest lost. He gives them promises and excites vain desires in them; and the Satandoes not promise them aught but (in) deception... (it is) a promise of Allah, true (indeed); andwho is truer of word than Allah? (4:119-122)2 of 4
Saul, David and Goliath (Talooth,Dawood and Jaloot)
 249. As Saul set out with the troops, he said, ‘Allah will test you with a stream: anyonewho drinks from it will not belong to me, but those who do not drink from it will belong to me,barring someone who draws a scoop with his hand.’ But they drank from it, [all] except a few of them. So when he crossed it along with the faithful who were with him, they said, ‘We have nostrength today against Goliath and his troops.’ Those who were certain they will encounter Allahsaid, ‘How many a small party has overcome a larger party by Allah’s will! And Allah is with thepatient.250. So when they marched out for [encounter with] Goliath and his troops, they said, ‘Our Lord, pour patience upon us, make our feet steady, and assist us against the faithless lot.’251. Thus they routed them with Allah’s will, and David killed Goliath, and Allah gave himthe kingdom and wisdom, and taught him whatever He liked. Were it not for Allah’s repellingthe people by means of one another, the earth would surely have been corrupted; but Allah isgracious to the world’s creatures.In the story of David and Goliath those who went against Goliath were in three groups. Thosewho were not of Talooth, those with him and those who took a handful of water from the stream.Some commentators of the Quran have mentioned that the stream means love of this world.Thus those who were lovers of this world were not with the leader appointed by Allah. Thosewho took but a small taste of this world were with the leader however they were afraid of the3 of 4
