Patience in Islam

Sabar or patience in Islam has significant role. It makes a muslim better muslim if he deal things with patience. Patience in dail life has several meanings such as if a person is ill then he should not scream or shout. Similay at the times of death of loved ones and some serious setbacks we need to deal situations with patience. Moreveor, dealing with younger ones we need to be patient because they are younger than us and we can say anyting to them doe snot mean we should sya it; deal it with patience.
I saw sometimes in the offices that people deal with their personal staff with so arrogance and their behavior is so snobbish that they forget that they are muslims and what Allah (SWT) has asked them to do. But their Egos at that time is more important than anything else.
I am writing all this becasue I was fasting today and I thought I'll not get annoyed at anyonne but still I screamed couple of times of some people and after screaming I thought if i would not had screamed the matter woulld have solved either way. Does that screaming or losing patience benefits me in anyway... my answer is NO. But it pleased my Ego at that time.

"A Muslim does not suffer any mental or physical anguish, or any distress, grief, pain or sorrow - even from the prick of a thorn - except that Allaah expiates his mistakes and sins." Bukhaari and Muslim

This Sabr is an extremely important virtue for a believer. The Prophet sal-Allaahu alaihi wa sallam, talking to some poor Muslims from Ansaar whom he had given whatever he had, said:

"Whoever practices Sabr, Allaah Subhanahu wa Ta'alaa gives him Sabr. And no one can be given anything better or more far-reaching (comprehensive) than Sabr." Aboo S'eed Khudri in Bukhaari and Muslim.
