SALAT & SABR (Prayer & Patience)

In Surah al-Baqarah (2:45), Allah, Al-Sabur (The Patient), advises us to seek our Lord's Help through salat (prayer) and sabr (patience).

In this ayat (verse), Allah is addressing the followers of Prophet Musa (Moses), peace be upon him. Allah, Glory be to Allah, repeats this advice in the same surah (chapter) in ayat 153, this time addressing the believers in Allah. Prayer and patience are connected because through these two actions we can resist and persevere and establish a spiritual link to Allah, All Praise be to Allah. Prayer means attention to our Lord, remembrance and humility before Allah. It keeps us away from indecency and evil. We must be grateful to Allah and always remember our Lord. When we do that, we will internalize patience and persistence.
