Patience and Prayer: A Harmonious Duo

Quran ad

In Islam, patience and prayer are closely intertwined. As the Quran reminds us, “O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer.” (Quran 2:153) It’s through patience that believers can withstand trials, and it’s through prayer that they seek Allah’s guidance, strength, and support.

Rewards in Full When one exercises patience, there is a promise of rewards, and these rewards are not given in part but in full. “Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” (Quran 2:153) Patience leads to Allah’s companionship, and with Him by one’s side, the rewards are bound to be abundant and complete.
