تواصو بالحق تواصو بالصبر

حق تمام بھلاييوں كا دروازہ كھولتا ہے اور صبر تمام براييوں كا دروازہ بند كرتا ہے-

I would like to know further the meaning of word "Sabr or Patience". In what context and meaning Quran has used the word "Patience" ? And can apply the same meanings of Patience to our wordly life happenings ?

Why i am saying this is because, i watched a video by Dr Khalid Zaheer/Talib Mohsin , in which he said "Sabr is that attitude of religious life, that, Once anyone realizes the 'right message or Haq', then , he/she shall make it a part and parcel of his/her life being steadfast,whatever difficult circumstance may be". But we often used the word "sabr" in our daily life for being patient on wordly affairs and misfortunes ?

Patience: The Superior Solution*

Patience, the focus of about 200 verses of the Qur’an, and referred to indirectly in many others, may be termed the core subject of the scriptures.

The verses directly relating to patience are quite explicit in their content. For instance,

And seek (Allah’s) help with patience and prayer. (2:45)And endure patiently whatever may befall thee. (31:17)And exhort one another to be patient. (103:3)And heed not their annoyance, but put thy trust in Allah. (33:48)

A very pronounced and direct instruction to behave with patience and endurance is apparent in these verses.

The majority of the other verses are also intensely concerned with patience. The very first verse of the Qur’an begins with "Praise belongs to Allah." (al-Fatiha) This shows that Allah expects mankind to express its gratitude and admiration to Him. But this is a very trying expectation! We know that this world is full of unpleasant experiences and nobody can be insulated from them. According to the Qur’an "Man is born in toil." Indeed, it is not possible for anyone to create a life of absolute bliss for himself.

How then a person can become grateful and appreciative of Allah’s grace in the real sense? The only way to be so is through patience. It is only when a man patiently endures worldly problems that it is possible for him to express his feeling of gratefulness to Allah. It is for this reason that the Qur’an associates gratefulness with patience. (31:31)Patience makes a person capable of finding a positive and successful solution to any problem. When someone explodes with anger while facing his adversary, he loses the faculty to respond effectively or to think of well-planned action. But when he applies patience and tolerance, he finds himself competent to make a rational move instead of an impulsive reaction. History testifies that one who acts on impulses and emotional reactions, invariably fails; and one who responds rationally, always succeeds.

Patience is undoubtedly the superior solution to all problems.

Nice atricle .

My point was that, the context in which Quran has used the word "Sabr/Patience" is referring to that attitude of life,which, once you adopt- believing that it is the right path- then it shall be followed by staying steadfast,even whatever circumstances are faced by you.

Whereas, use of the word Sabr/Patience is also frequent in Urdu/English literature/conversations but in altogether , different connotations.

Sabr when used as a Quranic term (staying steadfast) it means what explained by Dr Khalid Zaheer sb. But literary it can be used & in fact frequently used for worrldly affairs. here it'll mean 'Patience'. Quran as well has used it in this sense at some places like Showing patience at three times; Ba'saa' (like hunger etc), Zurraa' (like illnesses) & at war.

Req. Pl post in Urdu or at least roman urdu at Urdu forums. Thanks
