Episode Notes

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi divulges details on the importance of being patient in the wake of hardship, difficulties, calamities and trials.

Almost a hundred verses in the Qur’an command us to be patient and teach us about the blessings of patience.

Anas RA said that the Prophet ﷺ said, “The real patience is at the first stroke of a calamity.”

Sabr and Iman go hand in hand. True righteousness is depicted when we exhibit patience or Sabr. Those who are patient are promised glad tidings by Allah on the Day of Judgement. It is through patience that Allah will save us from the punishment of Allah.

Being patient is a part of belief in Allah. Many prophets like Nuh AS,Ibrahim AS, Musa AS, Ayyub AS and Prophet Muhammad ﷺ set forward exemplary standards of patience in the wake of insults, humiliation and torture.

What is patience and how can it be mastered? Shaykh Yasir Qadhi explicitly explains the basics and acquaints us with the concept of patience not being an action, but actually being an inaction. He also elaborates us on the three types of Sabr.

hamdulillah we praise Allah subhana wa tada who has chosen Ramadan as the queen of all months, and has blessed us with life and with Iman and taqwa to fast it's days and pray during its nights. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to send his Salat and his Salaam, upon the one who said whoever fasts Ramadan with Iman and expecting the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala shall have all of his sins forgiven. My dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhana wa tada has reminded us in the Quran, that the purpose of Ramadan, the purpose of Siam, in fact, the purpose of our religion is to achieve the taqwa of Allah subhana wa tada Yeah, you hola Dina Amano coup de vida como se como como coochie

00:00:44--> 00:01:31

Balala the name of public con la la quinta chacun. O you who believe fasting has been prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you so that you can achieve the consciousness and taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam. In today's up, I will talk about another goal of fasting an alternative goal which is directly intended by Allah subhana wa tada and that is the goal of Mastering the Art of patience of being patient of suburb. The concept of suburb is one that occurs constantly throughout the Quran and Sunnah. In fact, it is one of the most common commandments. Almost 100 verses in the Quran mentioned the blessings of patience and command is to

00:01:31--> 00:02:19

be patient, and this month, has been linked to patience. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the month of fasting is the month of sober Shahada sober is one of the names of month of Ramadan. So one of the names of the month of Ramadan is Shahada sub, as according to the Hadith and Sunnah Anissa and in another Hadith our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that our sole municipal sub that fasting is mastering half of all the patients reported in activity. So this month is the month of patience, and fasting is considered to be mastering half of the entire art of patience. And so as we begin this month on the first Friday of this month, let us remind ourselves

00:02:20--> 00:03:06

of the blessings and the beauty of patience, and why Allah subhanho wa Taala has legislated it. As for the linking of sub two this month, the linking of sovereign to the concept of fasting that is self evident and obvious, because it is during this month that we control ourselves, we are patient, we refrain from the two most essential items to live and that is food and water. In this month, we restrain ourselves from our sensual desires throughout the day, that which is permitted between spouses has become unlawful during the date. This is another mastery of patience. During this month, we restrain ourselves in so many of the sins that we are accustomed to do. In this month, we cut

00:03:06--> 00:03:49

back our sins, we eliminate our sins, we restrain our desires to that which is lawful, and in this month, we restrain ourselves to the worship of Allah throughout the year, much of us we waste too much time. In this month. Every one of us with an ounce of Eman we take advantage of our time that which might be permitted, but it's too luxurious to wasteful, we cut back on it and when we dedicate ourselves to the worship of Allah to the recitation of the Quran, to the frequenting of the massages, and so the linking of sublime with this month is obvious. And the linking of sub with the aspect of cm is also obvious. Realize My dear brothers and sisters, that being patient is a part and

00:03:49--> 00:04:32

parcel of being a believer in a law. And that is why all of the prophets of Allah, without exception, have stories in the Quran that embody patience without exception. Every single prophet in the Quran has stories that deal with them Mastering the Art of patience of them is the Prophet nor alayhis salaam, where Allah subhana wa tada mentions that he was mocked and ridiculed by his people for 950 years of them is the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam who was patient time and time again, he was patient to when he was thrown into the fire by his people. He was patient when he was commanded to sacrifice his son his money, he was patient over and over again. of them is the patience of Musa

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

Moses. How many times Moosa has to control his anger in the Quran, even our prophets all along what is seldom said, Moosa was taunted and ridiculed more than I was, and he was patient. So even the prophets as I mentioned, the subject of Moosa, the patience of you the prophet Job, a YouTube, how much was he tested and tried his family, all of his children were taken away all of his work.

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

was taken away. His skin was inflicted with leprosy he became a pariah. And yet Allah mentions him in the Quran. With carabid Anna you remember our servant, a you, we tested him in order to know who saw them at all. We found him to be a patient servant near him and abotu in my lab, what a great servant he was. Why did a lot praise a tube in such a manner because in order to know who saw the at all, we found him to be a patient, Prophet, a patient person, our Prophet Mohammed Sal, Allahu Allah, he was setting them before him Jacobian use of Of course, as well, the patients that we are losing use of the patience of use of being tempted being thrown in jail. Each and every prophet in

00:05:45--> 00:06:27

the Quran becomes a symbol of perfecting the art of patience, and of course, our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well mastered that aspect of this religion, which is to be patient for the sake of Allah, how many stories how many incidents of this era where we could see that our Prophet system controlled himself controlled his anger he was patient for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada the incident of thought if the conquest of Mecca the harsh Bedouins that he had to deal with each and every time again, he continued to demonstrate what is the reality of mastering patience, and that is why my dear brothers and sisters Saba is linked with a man. If you have a man, you will

00:06:27--> 00:07:11

have suburb and if you don't have suburb, then in reality you have not perfected a man solver and a man go hand in hand you cannot have one without the other. Allah subhana wa tada mentions in the Quran. literally dozens of verses as I said, one of the most common commandments, one of the most frequent mentions in the Quran over 100 times almost alum mentions patience, some of those verses Allah subhana wa tada praises true righteousness he says in the Quran in reverse we recited yesterday in our sadhana les Sal bira it is not righteousness, whether you turn east or west towards Allah, but true righteousness is and then a long list begins one paragraph and Allah finishes this

00:07:11--> 00:07:25

lift, while sobbing, I feel sorry will Bharati where he knows us and those who are patient. True righteousness is to demonstrate Patience, patience, when you are afflicted with poverty filled

00:07:26--> 00:08:06

what the raw when you're inflicted with calamity. So when you don't have money, or when you have some disease, some sickness some loved one is in pain, filbert, sorry, what Bharati were handled by us and during times of war. If you are patient in these times, hula, hula Dino Sadako These are the people that have demonstrated they are truthful, what would like a woman with the horn and they are the true righteous people. Allah subhana wa tada mentions in the Quran that those who are patient, I shall give them glad tidings. What best [???] is solve it in, give them good news. Give them good news, Allah and the angels say to those who are patient, I am giving you good news Who are those

00:08:06--> 00:08:47

that are patient alladhina either Saba Tomasi button, although in the law he was in LA he wrote your own whenever a calamity afflicts them, they don't lose hope. They don't become pessimistic, they remain optimistic. They have a cheerful attitude of Allah and of the day of judgment and they say to Allah we belong and to Him, we shall return. So Allah says what best should is forbidden give them good news, they shall be happy, they shall rejoice, their pain, their suffering, their anguish will be turned into a time of joy on the Day of Judgment, what bus [???]test saw bidding, give them the good news and Allah subhana wa tada mentions that it is through patience, that one will be saved,

00:08:47--> 00:09:27

one will be saved from the punishment of a law while sitting in an incentive hosted Illallah Dena mano y mano sodality, whatever well, so Bill sabeti, what's also been happy with us over the summer, to be patient, to master the art of patience. So also the sovereign means you're advising one another to be patient. Not only are you patient, you tell your family, you tell your loved ones at times of calamity, we need to be patient during this difficult time. So you demonstrate patience in your own life. And you also become a role model for patients to your family and friends and relatives. These are the people that Allah says they will not be destroyed in that instead of Jose

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

ill Idina Aminu, except for those who believe and do good and they follow the truth and they advise one another with patience. And that is why my dear brothers and sisters, Allah loves those who are patient, Allah loves them and Allah is with them. In the Quran. There are only a handful of verses where Allah says I love such and such some scholars have mentioned a dozen or a little bit more than this. Just a few adjectives that Allah says I love this category of people of those Allah subhana wa tada says, Well law who you hate both

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

labin Allah loves those who are patient. And Allah says that in the Lucha Moussa between Allah is with those who are patient, so Allah is with them when they feel they have nobody, when they feel everyone has been taken away. They've been betrayed when they feel that their family has gone or they've lost a loved one. Allah says I am with them in Nola Hamas sabihin Allah is with them. No Muslim should ever feel alone. No believer should ever feel abandoned because that person that believer has Allah subhana wa tada because Allah has promised if you are patient, then I shall be with you. And that is why a patient believer, a patient believer is worth much more than a believer

00:10:45--> 00:11:27

who does not have patience. Allah subhana wa tada mentions in the Quran in those famous verses asserted and file that the people of makup the people of Medina, the Muslims were complaining, we don't have enough numbers to fight the chorus, the chorus are too numerous, they are much more than us. What does Allah say in the Quran in your common commercial Runa sabi Runa Yaga boo me attain. If you have 20 people who are patient amongst you notice Allah gave the adjective if you have 20 who are patient, they shall overcome 200 of them. So one person that is patient is equal to 10 who don't have patience. So look at how Allah subhana wa tada has praised the reality of patience in the

00:11:27--> 00:12:13

Quran, as well. Allah links His forgiveness and paradise and the heights of Paradise to being patient. Once again I repeat, Allah links His forgiveness to patients. Allah says in the Quran in lella Dena Saba huami lusardi hace una ecohome, Mo Farah, those who are patient and do good they will be the ones who are forgiven. So forgiveness from Allah is linked to patience and entering gender and the highest ranks of gender are also linked to being patient. Allah says in the Quran, that the people of gender, the people of gender, the melodica, yehudah him and coolibah the angels are entering upon them from every single door. So imagine you are in Jenna reclining on the couches

00:12:13--> 00:12:24

of Jenna seeing the beauty of Jenna and the angels are coming to greet you. What are they saying? What is the phrase of the angels Santa Monica a combi ma sabato.

00:12:25--> 00:13:11

Peace beyond you because you were patient. So the people of Jenna got into Jenna and are being honored by the angels Why? set them on a combi masa bottom piece beyond you because you demonstrated patience. So the angels have linked your place in gender and your status in gender with the reality of you demonstrating patience in this world and not just any place of gender. Allah subhana wa tada mentions the highest places of gender will not include his own little horrified, chubby masamoto they shall be given the highest ranks. The horrify in the Quran means the highest chambers of gender Bhima sabado, because they were patient, so patients gets you to the highest level of gender. And in

00:13:11--> 00:13:56

fact, Allah Himself will congratulate you for having demonstrated patience, quite literally in the Quran. Allah Himself will congratulate you. Allah says in the Quran in New Jersey to human Yama, DML Sabo and the home homolka is on today. Allah speaking in the first person and it is not common a lot typically speaks in the third person, we shall do this or they shall be blessed. But in this verse, Allah speaks and the first person he addresses us directly in the jersey to hemangioma de masaharu. Today, I shall give them all that they have earned, because they were patient. So Allah Himself will take on the responsibility of rewarding those who are patient. And then Allah says, because they are

00:13:56--> 00:14:36

the ones and the home home alpha is on They are the ones who have won the race. You know, in the Quran, there is this metaphor of racing to gender of winning the race, who are the real winners, Allah says the ones who are patient in the home home on his own, they're the ones who won the race in front of everybody else. And my dear brothers and sisters, the one who is patient has a guarantee from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah that Allah will help this person. When you feel all other avenues are cut off. When you feel alone, you must turn to Allah subhana wa tada because Allah has promised that the one who is patient, there is a guarantee Allah will take care of him. Allah says in the

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

Quran, Bella in hospital, what better way to come in for the caminhada unit Cobra bukem become Sati other feminine Monica. Allah is mentioning the Battle of water and the Battle of butter as well. These verses are current both of these battles that if you are just patient, instead of being hasty, if you're just patient, and you have your trust in Allah and taqwa in Allah, Allah will send down 5000

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

An angels to help you on that battle and a lot Lynx immediately patience with his aid burner in toss biru. So once again, if on the Battle of better when you're facing Abu lahab, you're facing Abuja, you're facing the 1000 army of orange and you're not even armed. And Allah says, if you're a patient, I will send down 5000 angels to help you, which is exactly what happened as we know if that's going to happen on the battle the budget, how about my endure trivial problems if we're patient and that cannot Allah solve those problems? How about my problems of finance, my problems of family, my problems of interactions, my problems of life, this is the reality of this world. We all

00:15:37--> 00:16:18

go through our problems. And Allah azzawajal has told us we need to go through all of these problems, having mastered the art of patience, and that is why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No one has been given something that is better or more vast than patience, it is the best blessing to be given. Because again, patience and demand go hand in hand. You cannot be patient, unless you have a man in a law. And if you have a man in a law, then that will also come with patience, and the ones who are patient shall be rewarded double for all they have done. For all they have done, they get a double a bonus reward. Allah says Allah, Allah hamara, Cheney, bml sabado

00:16:19--> 00:17:07

those people will be rewarded double because they were patient. In fact, not just double, not just double, the only time in the Quran that Allah mentions I shall reward without measure. without counting, forget double forget triple forget times den, forget time 700 times infinity. The only time Allah says it is what is when it comes to patience in your welfare. sabudana Jota home believed in his house, the ones who are patient, they shall be returned their reward without any measure or counting. Allah will not count how many times extra reward you are getting, once you have mastered the art of patience, and my dear brothers and sisters, the rewards of patience, the blessings of

00:17:07--> 00:17:56

patience go on and on and on. But the question arises, what is patience? And how is it demonstrated? What exactly is patience? And how is it demonstrated? My dear brothers and sisters realize that the reason why patience is so difficult to master is that patience is in reality, inaction and inactivity. Patience is to do nothing to master what you feel like doing. That is the reality of patience. It is easy to do something when you're irritated. When you're angry. When you're sad. When you're grieving. You feel like doing something. Patience tells you to master and not do that which Allah does not want you to do. So patience means you're feeling something inside, but it is not

00:17:56--> 00:18:39

being shown on the outside, the grief, the anger, the anguish, the frustration, whatever it is, patience means you let it remain there and not show it on the outside. And that is why patience is so difficult. Because patience is not an action. Patience is inaction. I repeat, patience is not an action. Patience is inaction. You don't do anything. Someone has died, your loved one has passed away, you control your tongue. You do not will moan grieve in a manner that is an Islamic you keep your tongue in check. You lose your job, something bad happens. You do not start moaning and complaining. Why is this happening to me? I don't deserve this to happen. stuff at a low Who are you

00:18:39--> 00:19:17

to challenge the wisdom of a law? Who are you to stand up and say why is this happening? Are you a law? Or are you a servant of Allah? If you're a true servant of Allah, then you say in the law he was in a garage your own Oh Allah you are my Lord. I don't understand. But I trust you. I trust whatever has happened has happened for the best. I don't understand. But that's because my wisdom is limited. I am not questioning your wisdom or law. I am questioning my wisdom and I trust you our law you will make things better for me. This is patience, your attitude, your optimism, your EMA and your words that you say the actions that you do. We are prohibited in Islam from wielding and

00:19:17--> 00:19:59

grieving from beating ourselves when somebody dies. This is all how long when somebody passes away, we demonstrate patience. When we lose a job when any calamity happens when we're in grief. We need to master ourselves and remember what our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said in masaharu in the solamente oola rememorize this hadith brothers and sisters because patience according to this hadith is demonstrated at the first stroke of calamity, patience is demonstrated at the first stroke of calamity, ie when you hear the news, how do you react? That is your patience. Everybody becomes patient in two years. In two months, in two days, everybody becomes patient

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

You have to deal with it. True patience has demonstrated when, as soon as you find out the news, as soon as you hear that big disaster, what will be your reaction in my Sabra in the submitted oola sobre is demonstrated at the stroke of calamity and in order to prepare yourself for that stroke, you need to master Patience, patience is not learned. After the calamity happens, patience has to be earned before so that when the calamity strikes, you are able to control yourself in a patient manner. And hence my dear brothers and sisters, we get back to the issue of fasting because fasting is what allows us to master our patience. Fasting is when we withhold ourselves from that which is

00:20:42--> 00:21:24

necessary to live our food, our drink on this hot day, we are mastering that which is necessary in order to demonstrate to Allah, if I can live without food and water, then I can live without committing sins. If I can live without food and water, then I can live without wailing and groaning and moaning. If I can live without food and water that I can live without disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are mastering day by day night by night, every single day we're honing in and that is why just fasting will perfect half of patients. Of course, not all of it because there are other things that need to be done as well. But just the act of fasting will get us 50% of the reality of

00:21:24--> 00:22:07

patients. And my dear brothers and sisters realized as well, that patience is so beloved to Allah, that of the names of Allah is the one who is patient of some of the names of Allah is a suitable, so Allah characterized himself with that attribute that he loves so much, and how is Allah subhanaw taala. Our Prophet system gave just one example, just one example. And of course, this name is a whole lot but in and of itself, he said a lot. There is no one who is more possible than Allah. No one has more support than Allah. His servants deny Him, curse him, reject Him. People negate Allah's existence. People say bad things about Allah. And yet he continues to provide for them their needs,

00:22:07--> 00:22:52

their food, their drink, their merriment subtitled if somebody says one half bad phrase about us, we abandon him for years. If we hear on the rumor grapevine that somebody has disparaged us, call us all good is cut off. Allah azzawajal hears his servants saying such things about him, rejecting him mocking him denying him and yet look he is providing for all of them. That's one of the manifestations of his name, a suburb. That's one of the manifestations of a laws suburb and that is a divine characteristic that we are told to emulate as much as we can that when something happens we as well turn the other cheek we as well demonstrate our patients My dear brothers and sisters, Allah

00:22:52--> 00:23:30

subhana wa tada mentions in the Quran, which is our homeboy Mr. Sabo, Jen nuts, and well how do they reward for having been patient was to enter gender and to taste all of the blessings of gender. So indeed, let us think about the reality of supper as we go through this month. Let us master sobered one bit at a time. Let us appreciate that one of the goals of fasting is to master at least half of this beautiful concept of Sabbath. May Allah make us amongst those who are patient that are called logical for Connor alvim wanna find he will be mad at him he will declare Hakeem ahora. Mateus marone was stopped for a while nobody would have come what he said Mr. minocqua them infested guru

00:23:30--> 00:23:32

in Navajo or food or Rahim.

00:23:44--> 00:24:14

Alhamdulillah hiwot Hill ahead of summit la de la emulate what mula wollemi akula who cufon ahead whereby you can ask the brothers to move forward there are people outside and we don't want to have anybody outside today. So squeeze in as much as you can. Scholars have mentioned that patience is of three types. There are three types of patience My dear brothers and sisters, the first type of patience, which is the lowest level, the lowest level is to demonstrate patience when a calamity afflicts you.

00:24:15--> 00:24:56

This is the lowest level because it's out of your control. You cannot dictate your circumstances, you lose the job, financial catastrophe, the death of a loved one, you cannot dictate it. So to demonstrate patience here means what? you control your tongue and you have an optimistic attitude with Allah subhana wa Tada. You don't have to understand you can feel sad, it's human nature to feel sad. You can cry You can grieve but you cannot question the wisdom or the mercy or the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. You cannot question it in your heart, much less verbalize it in your tongue. So patience here means to control even your thoughts. Even your thoughts need to be controlled at a

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

time of calamity and especially your tongue and you do not question

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

The wisdom of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is the lowest level of patience. And it is one that Indeed, Allah azza wa jal mentions that this is one of those levels that whoever masters it has an especially at the death of a loved one. Our Prophet says in a mention that of the greatest calamities and there are many ideas about this is to lose a young woman a child is to lose a child and that is why losing a child and being patient is automatically linked to being entered into gender. There are many a hadith about the one who is patient at the death of a young one at the child and they demonstrate their patience, Allah azza wa jal will cause that child to hold onto his

00:25:36--> 00:26:17

parents hands and insist in front of Allah, no matter what his parents have done, they were patient at his death, insist that they will come into genda with his hands. So this is of that level, which is to demonstrate patience at the time of a calamity. The second level of patience is to be patient, and restrain yourself from committing sins and disobeying Allah. Now, this at times is more difficult, because committing sins is in front of us, we have the luxury the option of committing so many sins. being patient here means controlling, withholding with with with straining, holding ourselves back, reining ourselves in checking ourselves in, we don't go and do something that is

00:26:17--> 00:26:57

tempting in front of us. And this level of patience is one that the month of Ramadan helps us to master. Think about it. in Ramadan, we are withholding ourselves from food and water. We're withholding ourselves from the sensual pleasures. So we're learning to withhold ourselves from that which is not allowed for us. The only reason we don't eat and drink. Allah says don't eat and drink, so we don't. So then how about Allah says, Don't drink alcohol, don't take drugs, don't do this, don't do that. The lists are there. So when we master withholding ourselves from food and water, we're also mastering withholding ourselves from the other sins and the highest level of patience,

00:26:57--> 00:27:43

which is really the most difficult because it's so casual, because we don't even think about it is to be patient, ie to restrain yourself away from time wasters and restrict yourself to that which is beneficial and the worship of Allah to constantly be worshipping Allah subhana wa tada to be patient, ie withhold yourself, restrain yourself from that which is maybe even head on maybe even permissible, but too much of permissible also becomes mcru. So to withhold yourself from too much of permissible things, too much of cruelty, too much of time wasters, and to be more beneficial to do extra Koran extra sign up extra zeker extra charity, and once again, the month of Ramadan teaches us

00:27:43--> 00:28:27

this type of patience as well, because all of us we began doing a little bit extra, some extra put on some extra charity, the month of Ramadan is the month of all types of a bother so we engrained ourselves to be patient in the worship of Allah subhana wa tada and this is what Allah azza wa jal mentions in the Quran. What more halakhah Salatu was sobre la, command your family to pray and be patient As you command them to bring Be patient? What's the big idea that's the highest level to you, yourself and your family constantly be worshiping Allah subhana wa tada and being demonstrating patience in this regard, brothers and sisters remember as well that this whole life according to our

00:28:27--> 00:29:13

religion is a life of tests and trials. And therefore, every one of us will be tested and tried in different ways. But all of us are tested and tried. And the one major mechanism to overcome and pass those tests and trials is what it is patience, and that is why Allah says was study No, the subsidy was sila were in Kabira. To Isla de la Shireen. seek Allah's help when you face the calamities when you have any problems, seek Allah's help or start a new life is difficult. You need help. What help Are you going to get a woman she has two things what's the angel the subsidy was sought out? Seek help through solver patience and through Salah prayer at times of difficulty that's a separate topic

00:29:13--> 00:29:52

inshallah. Maybe another week of Ramadan. We'll talk about the Salah, but our Prophet system his mother, our mother on issue, said our mother our issue said whenever our Prophet system was troubled with anything, whenever something bothered him, what would he do fuzzy in a Salah. He would rush to stand inside out Salah would make him calm. So that would make him conquer those problems those fears those frustrations. So patience and Salah are the two things that Allah has told us to seek help in and also realize my dear brothers and sisters, that beautiful verse in the Quran that Allah tells us to be sovereign jameelah Be patient a beautiful patience. So patience is of levels and the

00:29:52--> 00:30:00

highest level is a beautiful patience and a beautiful patience is one when people don't even realize you're being patient.

00:30:01--> 00:30:41

Nobody knows other than Allah that you're being patient. That is the perfection of patience. Nobody can see you're frustrated, nobody can see you're agitated, nobody can see that you're feeling anger, you have mastered it so much that only Allah knows and that is the perfection which Allah says FOSS Buddhists have been on jameelah perfect your patience until it is a perfect and beautiful patience and the final heading that I remind myself and all of you is that how does one achieve patience My dear brothers and sisters Well, there is no easy mechanism fasting is one of them to perfect our fast but the main mechanism of achieving patience is to want patience from Allah subhana wa tada to
