In Babil (Babylon, which is one of the oldest civilizations on earth) which has been renamed Hillah, is the Holy shrine of Prophet Ayub(a.s) also known as Prophet JOB.He was one of the most patient of Prophets.
Prophet Ayub prayed," Truly adversity has afflicted me and You are the Most Merciful of all who show Mercy" (Surah 21,verse 83).
Allah accepted his prayer, as affirmed in the Holy Quran:
" Then WE heard his payer and removed that adversity from which he suffered and We gave him his household and the like thereof along with them, a mercy from Our store and remembrance of the worshipers". (Surah 21verse 84).
How befitting that both he and the King of Patience should be but miles from each other .
