    Patience is one of the most important characteristics for the Muslims to develop, and it is one of the greatest lessons in life. Patience is actually mentioned more than 90 times in the Qu'ran.
    Allah swt says:'And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah], who are certain that they will meet their Lord and that they will return to Him' - Qu'ran 2:45-46.{'And be patient {O Muhammad] and your patience is not but through Allah}
    Patience means to restrain oneself from what is harmful, and to endure what one dislikes with a sense of acceptance and submission. To restrain oneself from that which is harmful means to avoid approaching any acts of disobedience to Allah swt. If Muslims experience suffering, they endure it patiently and respond to evil with only that which is good. They pardon and forgive those who caused harm, remembering the rewards that Allah swt has promised.
    Allah swt says:
    "O My servants who have believed, fear your Lord. For those who do good in this world is good, and the earth of Allah is specious. Indeed, the patient will be given their reward without account [limit].
    The Prophet Muhammed pbuh showed forgiveness and patience with those who harmed him. He humbled himself, even during adversity and when people mocked him. Prophet Muhammed pbuh said "Charity does not decrease wealth. If one forgives, Allah increases his honour, and if one humbles himself before Allah, Allah swt raises him in status". (recorded by Muslim).
    Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said: "Whoever refrains from asking Allah swt will grant him independence; whosoever seeks self - sufficiency, Allah swt will make him self-sufficient. Whoever tries to be patient, Allah swt will give him patience; and no one is granted a gift better and more comprehensive than patience." (recorded by Bukhari).
    Throughout their lifetimes, the believers are either in a condition of gratitude or a state of patience. The Prophet Muhammed pbuh said: "How wonderful is the affair of the believer. All of his affairs are good, unlike anyone else. When he experiences a joyful occasion, he is grateful, and it will be good for him. If he suffers misfortune, and endures it patiently, then it will also be good for him". (recorded by Muslim).
