So, we can only be patient in obeying Allaah the Exalted during these times, as well as be patient in avoiding disobeying Him, and being patient in facing disasters and predestined things.  
O you who has weak resolve, the path is long… Adam, may Allaah exalt his mention, became tired during this path, Nooh (Noah), may Allaah exalt his mention, struggled in it, Ibraaheem (Abraham), may Allaah exalt his mention, was thrown in the fire for it and Ismaa`eel (Ishamel), may Allaah exalt his mention, was laid to be slaughtered for it.   
Zakariyyaa (Zachariah), may Allaah exalt his mention, was sawn in half for it, Yahyaa (John), may Allaah exalt his mention, was slaughtered and Ayyoob (Job), may Allaah exalt his mention, underwent harm.   
Daawood (David), sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, cried excessively for it, and Allaah’s Noble Prophet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, was accused of magic, and insanity…his molar tooth was broken, his face was cut open, as well as his head… Moreover, `Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, was killed through a stab wound, and Ibn Al-Musayyib, may Allaah have mercy upon him, and Maalik, may Allaah have mercy upon him, were punished.  Therefore, the only path to tread is to be patient.  
Know that however hard patience is, impatience is even harder, because patience in keeping away from Allaah’s prohibitions is easier than patience in suffering the punishment of Hellfire.

Also, patience in obeying Allaah the Exalted is easier than patience in suffering the shackles [of Hellfire]. Therefore, patience is a noble station, a noble characteristic, and the most noble of people are those of patience.  
O Allaah, make us among those who open the door of patience, fill the trenches of sorrow, pass through extreme punishment, and pass over the bridge of desires.  O Allaah, make us among those who have the signs of guidance shown to them, have the path to safety cleared for them, and who tread the path of the sincerity of certainty.  
The last of our supplications is that all praise is for Allaah the Exalted the Lord of all that exists, and may Allaah the Exalted send peace and blessings on our Prophet, Muhammad, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam, as well as his family and Companions.
