Sabr: refrain, stop

Sabr means to stop ourselves from despairing and panicking, to stop our tongues from complaining to people and to stop our hands from striking our faces and tearing our clothes at times of grief and stress.

Scholars say:

“The one who has patience is the one who has trained himself to handle difficulties.”
- Abu Uthman

” Patience means to keep close to Allah and to accept calmly the trials He sends, without complaining or feeling sad.”
- Amr ibn Ithman al-Makki

“Patience means to adhere to the rules of the Quran and Sunnah.”
- Al-Khawwas

“Patience means to seek Allah’s help.”
- Ali ibn Abi Talib

“Patience means not seeing any difference between times of ease and times of hardship, being content at all times.”
- Abu Muhammad al-Hariri
