When disciplinary action is meted out to people in employment and in other matters – and they are reprimanded by rulers – how wonderful would it be if they were to bear hardship for the sake of Allah the Exalted!
Those who shoulder pain and difficulty so that righteousness may be upheld find favour amongst people as well. This is the way of the Prophets and the Truthful. Allah the Exalted never remains in debt of an individual who sustains material loss for His sake, and always grants a full reward.
(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 1, p. 5)
