The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: “Any Muslim for whom four testify that he was righteous, then Allah will enter him into Paradise.”
We said `What about three? “. He (pbuh) said “And three”. We said`And two`. He (pbuh) said: ” And two”. We did not ask him about (the testimony) of one (believing) person. (Sahih Bukhari, Jami`a Tirmidhi and An-Nasài).
There are several types of Sabr (patience), one for avoiding the prohibitions and sins, one for acts of worship and obedience. The second type carries more rewards than the first type. There is a third type of patience in the face of afflictions and hardships, which is mandatory, like repentance.
