                One of the six pillars of faith in Islam is to believe in fate, the divine creed and destny. Allha’s will is supreme and is fullfiled  in spite of everything. Allah is great, but He is the most Merciful at the same time. Allah wills good things to us. The problem is with us and our perspective on things. Als, Allah is all-Strong, and we humans are weak, mentally, morally and even physically. It is natural that humans can’t endure the slightest pain. Some people may collapse at the slightest joy. We can’t just ignore nature and moralise.  Here comes the role of Islam. Islam asks its followers to adopt strong faith, The stronger a Muslim’s faith is, the greater their  patience is. A Muslim believes that all events are from Allah. Also, a Muslim believes and trusts that Allah wills good things for us. It is the Muslim’s role to accept their fate and destny. Also the significance of patience is that it helps Muslims pass the tests they get through. Patient people hardly ever suffer mental, psychological or physical disturbances. In short patience benefits a Muslim now and in the hereafter. In this worldly life a patient person leads a quiet and a stable life. In the hereafter, patient people  are promised countless rewards.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
