Patience in Islam

Imam ‘Ali (as) was asked about faith (iman), he replied:

“The structure of faith is supported by four pillars: Patience (sabr), Conviction (yaqin), Justice (`adl) and Struggle (jihad).
Then he explained further:
‘Patience comprises of four attributes: Eagerness, fear, piety and anticipation (of death).
So, whoever is eager for Paradise will ignore evil temptations;
whoever fears the fire of Hell will abstain from sins; whoever
practices piety will easily bear the difficulties and hardships of
the life of this world and whoever anticipates death will hasten
to perform good deeds.’”

[Al-Amidi, Ghurar ul Hikam wa Durar ul Kalim, hadith # 2897]
