“The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "Whoever exerts himself to have patience and pushes himself, when he doesn’t think that he can be patient anymore, Allaah will grant him success and Allaah will make him patient because of his struggle.

“Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be farsighted enough to trust the end result of a process. It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be shortsighted as to not able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never runs out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full.”
