Have you ever had questions like these crossed your mind:
How long should I be patient?
Does patience mean I just have to wait and not taking any action?
When I complain my pain to Allah, does that mean I am not being grateful to Him?
Is it enough for me to say "Alhamdulillah" to indicate my gratitude to Allah, or do I have to do other acts of worship?
Patience and gratitude are significant in the same time when a believer is being tested with adversity or with grace.
Some of us have been living with the wrong concept where you only be patient with hardship and be grateful with blessings.
This is the time to learn how both attributes are connected and to understand why we need them to complete our faith.
