Why is the concept of Sabr Important:

Since the ummah is invested with world leadership (currently in 2019 there are 1.8 billion Muslims on earth, 25% of the world population) it’s necessary proper guidance is provided.

Muslims will face all kinds of adversity, we will face all kinds of trials and bear all kinds of deprivation. This is why Allah in Surah Baqarah ayat 153 Allah says, surely he will be with the patient.

The Muslims who persists and endure on the path of God despite the perils will be rewarded in full measure.

Patience seems like a simple word, but it embraces a whole set of virtues and philosophy that goes beyond the meaning of ‘just waiting’. It truly is the key to success and a rare quality in an individual.
