The Importance of Patience in Islam

By Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | Pakistan Chiritian Post | July 26, 2017

Sabr or patience is a central Islamic value and teaching. It is repeatedly stressed in the Quran. There are some other words with a similar meaning in the Quran—for instance, eraaz, which means avoidance of conflict. These two words, sabr and eraaz, appear in the Quran more than100 times. This indicates the great importance that the Quran gives to patience and avoidance.
