It is narrated on the authority of Aisha that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: Patience is the first thing that comes to mind. It is narrated in an Hadith that, On of person said to the Messenger of Allah, O the Messenger Of Allah! my condition went away and my body became ill. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: There is no good in this slave, Whose wealth does not go And the body does not get sick.
When Allah loves a person, He tests him And when he is put to the test, he gives patience. It is narrated in another Hadith, The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, There is a degree for man in the sight of Allah which he cannot reach by his deeds. Even if he is not subjected to any physical appearance then he reaches this level.
It is narrated in the hadith that when a verse was revealed, Abu Bakr said to the Messenger of Allah. Ya Rasool Allah! How will there be prosperity after this verse? The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Abu Bakr, may Allah forgive you. Would you not be ill?” Doesn’t trouble come to you? Are you not patient? Aren’t you upset? It is just a recompense for your sins. What is meant is that whatever misery befalls you becomes the expiation for your sin.
Types Of Sabr (Patience):

Patience for the sake of Allah Patience for the sake of obeying the command of Allah, Patience in whatever affliction befalls him in obedience to Allah’s command and obedience.
Be patient with the corpse of Allah. The decisions and rulings of your omnipotent Allah are ongoing, Be patient with those who are afflicted with severe calamities.
Be patient with God’s promises. Allah has promised to provide sustenance, fulfill the need, help and reward in the Hereafter Be patient.

Patience in the things that the servant has the right to do or not to do.
Patience in these matters does not interfere with the servant.
