And will tell the rewards which Allah will give after this life on patience. Sometimes it is hard to bear some severe hardships. And in this situation, the only way of treating this hardship is to have patience. Because, after every difficulty, there must be easiness and it is our faith in Allah.
What is sabr?
Sabr is an Arabic term that simply means ‘patience’. Islam’s use of the word sabr implies a very vibrant, cheerful aspect. Even in times of prosperity and an abundance of benefits, sabr is indeed a feature that should be present.
It can be defined in different ways. Like:
- The ability to resist from doing wrong or engaging in illegal activity is referred to as sabr.
- Sabr is the capacity to acknowledge that Allah’s will has predetermined every aspect of life.
- Sabr is the power to continue in attempts to conquer challenges.
- According to Islamic law, sabr refers to a group of people who respond favorably to Allah’s order.
Dua for sabr
Every Muslim should pray from Allah in his hardships and also ask Allah for sabr in the form of dua. Here, I will tell you the patience dua in Arabic. You can make this dua a part of supplication after every prayer. This dua is 250 ayat of Surah Bakarah.
In this dua, we request Allah to give us sabr and give success to us on non-Muslims.
Can Anyone Offer a Dua for Patience?
Many Muslims have a little misunderstanding about whether they should offer dua regarding patience or not. That is to say, under normal situations, you shouldn’t pray to Allah for sabr?
You still can ask Allah for sabr even in normal conditions. You should ask Allah to give sabr to bear incoming hardships and difficulties.

How would Muslims recite dua for patience?
A Muslim must not supplicate to Allah to check him with hardships in peacetime when there are no challenges. On the other hand, if it inevitably happens, a Muslim must pray to Allah. And ask Him to give them the tolerance and comfort to handle the circumstance.
Types of tests from Allah
Allah takes different tests from His human being in different ways. He checks the sincerity of a man towards Allah. Or He checks if a man is sharing this with me or someone else? So, Allah takes different trails in different forms. Such as;
- Both particular and general anxiety.
- Need of food.
- Wealth, property, animals, etc.
- death losses
- Fruit losses, including reduced production or loss of a yield.
So, always take any loss positively, because in every work there is an expediency of Allah.
Lessons behind the difficulties
The man should always get the lesson behind the difficulties and do dua for patience and anger.

Rewards of sabr
Allah will give a reward to the individual who will do sabr in this world. And the one who always makes dua for sabr and strength.
Higher state in Jannah
The one who doesn’t grieve over difficulties and hard times, Allah will rank him at the higher level in Jannah. It is proved with the following Hadith; (Muslim Book 70: patients)
Proof of love with Allah
Disasters, difficulties, and testing are evidence of Allah’s concern for believers. These are similar to a remedy, even though they may be unpleasant. But we accept them because they come from God which is proof of love.
No punishment on judgement’s day
Undoubtedly, suffering through trials and difficulties is preferable to retribution in the afterlife for believers. His status is improved, and his faults are forgiven by those who suffer more in this world.
So, always do sabr and shukar in every worse situation. Don’t be sad, because this life is not real. Life after death is real life. So always do dua for patience during difficult times.
