As-Sabr (Patience) is mentioned in the Qur'an in more than seventy places. This is because of the tremendous importance that patience has in the deen. It has been said that every good action has a limited reward, from ten-fold up to seven-hundred fold, except for patience whose reward has no limit. That is because of Allah's words "Only the patient are paid their reward without reckoning."

Allah mentions eight types of honor shown to the patient:

There are four aspects of patience:

Above patience there is surrender, which is abandoning opposition and discontentment outwardly and abandoning dislike inwardly.

Above surrender there is contentment with the decree, which is the self's happpiness with the act of Allah; it issues from love, for everything the Beloved does is beloved.
