What is the meaning of Patience (Sabr)? As a child we are taught to be patient so that we can arrive at something we want. We reinforce this training by telling our own children when we don’t want to buy something they want straight away “soon, soon, be patient and you will get it soon.” People say this to their Son several times. Children are smart and after only a few times of hearing this response he would reply: “Patience, patience, when is the end of patience!”

This brings us to the essential quality of Patience – timelessness. Patience has no boundaries, no limits. It is the refinement of the human soul, because our souls are trapped in our very limited bodies. Patience is a connection with our eternal soul and a true realization of its place in the grand scheme of Allah. This timeless quality is connected in the Quran with the eternity of the gardens of paradise:

“Peace be upon you for that you preserved in patience! Now how excellent is the final home!” (Quran 13:24)


The practical meaning of this is that a person cannot expect the result he/she desires at a certain point. Patience does not have an end and therefore the end that we desire (and are patiently awaiting) must be put aside. In essence the person must trust in Allah and have faith that whatever is occurring (or is not) is better that way in a plan of Allah.
