Jaabir ibn `Abdullaah, may Allaah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, said: “The people of good health, on the Day of Resurrection, and when the people who were severely tested are given their reward, will wish that their skins were cut up and shredded by scissors.”

Fourth: To have the intention of patience.   `Abdul-Waahid ibn Zayd, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: “Whoever intends to be patient in obeying Allaah, Allaah will make them patient and strong in that. Also, whoever has the intention to be patient in avoiding Allaah’s prohibitions, Allaah the Exalted will help them in that and will protect them from it.”

Fifth: To have confidence that victory and ease will come.  Allaah the Exalted has decreed that after every hardship, two eases come, as mercy from Him.  He Says (what means): {For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease. Indeed, with hardship [will be] ease.} [QUR’AAN 94:5-6]  Allaah the Exalted sends help according to the test, and He does not break His Promise (what means): {So be patient. Indeed, the promise of Allaah is truth. And let them not disquiet you who are not certain [in faith].} [QUR’AAN 30:60]  The sun will dawn, even after the longest of nights.

Ya`qoob (Jacob), may Allaah exalt his mention, was patient at his loss of Yoosuf (Joseph), may Allaah exalt his mention, as well as two of his other sons.  He said (what means): {So patience is most fitting.} [QUR’AAN 12:83]  There was no discontent or extreme sorrow in what he said.  He also said (what means): {Perhaps Allaah will bring them to me all together.} [QUR’AAN 12:83] He complained of his grief and sadness to Allaah the Exalted, saying (what means): {He said: ‘I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allaah, and I know from Allaah that which you do not know.’} [QUR’AAN 12:86]  He did not complain to other creation, and due to that, he was relieved of his distress and was united with all of his children in the end.
