How to keep patience in Ramadan


Worship May Be Difficult In Long Days Of Fasting & Requires Patience, So Learn To Be Patient This Ramaḍān

Prophet ﷺ stated in the Hadith collected by Muslim [223]:

"...Prayer is light, and Charity is a proof and Patience is illumination..."

Sh. Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān حفظه الله إيمانه mentioned: "The obligatory and supererogatory prayer are light in the face, hence you find darkness in the face of those who are negligent of the prayer, as for those who guard their prayers then you find light and illumination in their faces.

Giving in charity is a proof upon the truthfulness of a person's Eemaan, since no-one will be generous with their wealth except a believer.

Patience is illumination, and it is 3 types:

1. Patience Upon Obedience to Allah.

It is binding upon the servant to persist upon worship even if it is difficult upon him, since worship is not easy. It requires patience. The one who prayers 5 times every day and the night prayer requires patience. As for the one without this type of patience he will not end up continuing with worship.

2. Patience in Staying Away from Ḥarām.

No doubt desires and the ḥarām are desired by the individual, however a servant remains patient and refrains from them and does not be misled by the great numbers of people who are following those desires and performing the ḥarām.

3. Patience upon Difficulties of the Decree.

A believer remains patient if difficultly overcomes him in his wealth, or in his own self (health etc..), or in his family or relatives. He does not become upset and depressed, rather he is content and patient upon the decree of Allāh."
