The character of “patience” is praised in the Qur’an in many places. Also, it is one of the Sunnan (fixed decrees) of Allah to test His servants with trials. A true servant of Allah always shows patience in times of trials and gratitude for Allah’s favors and gifts.

Allah says in the Qur’an, “And Allah loves those who keep patient.” (Aal ‘Imran 3:146), “Verily the steadfast (who keep patient) will be paid their wages without stint” (Az-Zumar: 10), and “Surely, Allah is with those who keep patient).” (Al-Anfal 6:46)

Also, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: How wonderful is the affair of the believer, for his affairs are all good, and this applies to no one but the believer. If something good happens to him, he is thankful for it and that is good for him. If something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience and that is good for him“. (Reported by Muslim)

`Umar ibn `Abd al-`Azeez (may Allah be pleased with him) said: Allah has not bestowed any blessing upon His slaves then taken it away and replaced it with patience, but what He has compensated them with is better than what He has taken away.
It should be also clear that trials come in the form of something good or bad and not necessirily bad. Almighty Allah says, “and We try you with evil and with good, for ordeal…” (Al-Abiyaa’: 35)
