Importance of Patience

The Quran states: ‘Seek help with patience and prayer.’ (2:45). We often develop negativity or complaint on account of the actions of others. Prayer performed with a negative mentality will not be accepted by God. Patience helps one to clear one’s mind of ideas that give rise to negativity or complaint. In other words, the Quran urges us to exercise patience with respect to man and seek help from God.
