To Faith, Sabr (patience) is just like the head to the body. There are three types of Sabr.
First, there is the Sabr while performing Allah’s Commands, so that one does not ignore (or get bored with) them.
There is a sabr with shunning the prohibitions, so that one does not violate them.
There is also a sabr with the appointed destiny and decisions of Allah, so that one is not enraged because of them.
When one acquires all three types of Sabr, his sabr will be complete and the delight of this and the Next life will be whole, along with gaining and winning in both lives. No person shall achieve these great prizes except by passing over the Sirat (the bridge over Hell).
Umar radhiAllahu anhu said, “We achieve the best living by Sabr.”
