CHAPTER SEVEN
Types of Patience According to the fields It Applies to

Patience is of three types:

1- Worshipping Allah and following His commands,
2- Refraining from bad deeds, and

(Luqman: 17)
Enjoining what is just includes doing good and advising others to do so, as is forbidding what is wrong.

( Ar-Ra’d: 22)
