Patience in Islam - The Reward of Patience in Quran and Sunnah

Hardships and ease are a trial for you. Everything Allah chooses for you; from appropriate or evil, is for your benefit. Whatever took place to you should not have neglected you and what overlooked you may want to never have reached you. Rewards are only for those who have affected a person with the Decree of Allah.

Patience is to keep one’s soul from being impatient and displeased, conserving the tongue from complaining and the body parts from harming himself or others. The word (sabr) staying power in the Quran and Sunnah of the beloved Prophet (PBUH) is stated in many places, which suggests the virtues and excellence of patience. There is numerous proof of patients in the bible as nicely but they are no longer the problem at the moment.

Panic and impatience cannot quit Allah’s Decree. Complaining is contradictory to Sabr (patience). Allah (SWT) is only who can guard you against damage and ease your difficulties. Sabr is a compulsory act because we cannot escape ourselves from the tests. Sabr is obligatory. Allah also mentions in his Quran that”Allah surely loves those who are the sabireen (patient)” Quran 3:146
If the suffering outcomes from acts of obedience to Allah, such as injury on the battlefield, losing money during Hijrah (migrating for the sake of Allah), dropping a job due to the fact of accepting Islam or due to the fact one tries to comply with the Sunnah of Prophet (PBUH) like developing the beard, carrying the decrease garment above the ankles, etc, then the discomfort is a trial. Whoever bears it with endurance will be rewarded and whoever reveals annoyance may invoke the wrath of Allah upon himself.

If the affliction befalls due to sinful actions, such as illnesses prompted by way of drinking alcohol and using drugs etc, then the suffering is a punishment from Allah (SWT). Hasten to avoid all sinful acts and flip closer to Allah in repentance and ask his forgiveness. Otherwise, recognize that the punishments of the Hereafter are a long way extra extreme and unbearable.

If the affliction is neither related to neither a correct deed nor a sin, such as other kinds of disorder and sickness, losing a child, or failing in business, then you must evaluate your actions. If you are worried in some form of disobedience to Allah then the soreness is a punishment for you and a reminder to go away your evil deeds. Otherwise, Allah has precipitated this soreness to test your patience.

Anas ibn Malik reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said that one amongst the denizens of Hell who had led a life of ease and plenty amongst the people of the world would be made to dip in Fire only once on the Day of Resurrection and then it would be said to him: O, son of Adam, did you find any comfort, did you happen to get any material blessing? He would say: By Allah, no, my Lord. And then that person from amongst the persons of the world is brought who had led the most miserable life (in the world) from amongst the inmates of Paradise. And he would be made to dip once in Paradise and it would be said to him: O, son of Adam, did you face, any hardship? Or had any distress fallen to your lot? And he would say: By Allah, no, O my Lord, never did I face any hardship or experience any distress.
There are also many narrations of the liked Prophet (PBUH), which spotlight the importance of patience and point out the high-quality rewards and benefits of this venerable act of worship. Whoever wishes to be patient, Allah will assist him to be patient. None is ever given whatever higher and greater far-reaching than patience.

Narrated Abu Said Al Khudri: Some Ansari persons asked for (something) from Allah’s Apostle and he gave them. They again asked him for (something) and he again gave them. And then they asked him and he gave them again till all that was with him finished. And then he said “If I had anything, I would not keep it away from you. (Remember,) whoever abstains from asking others, Allah will make him contented, and whoever tries to make him self-sufficient, Allah will make him self-sufficient. And whoever remains patient, Allah will make him patient. Nobody can be given a blessing better and greater than patience.”Sahih Al-Bukhari – Book 24 Hadith 548

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
