JazakAllah for sharing. Patience is definitely a core component of a Muslim's life as he/she is required to be patient in not just good and bad situations, but evil too.

I will like to share a hadith and a quote I read last week. Not directly on the topic patience, but are related:

1) Last Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said: "He is successful who has accepted Islam, who has been provided with sufficient for his wants and been made contented by Allah with what He has given him" [Muslim]

2) "When we choose not to focus on what's missing from our lives
but are grateful for the abundance that's present... we experience heaven on earth."
~ Sarah Breathnach

We should always seek for patience, its for our best :)

JazakAllah khayr for sharing.
Patience is said to be the biggest virtue and earns us huge rewards.
It's a huge test of faith at times.
