Those who practiced abstinence besides worshiping the Almighty Allah and stayed in the realm of worships and prayers and did not run away in the face disasters and misfortunes and tolerated. These patient people are rewarded:
We will recompense those who exercise patience with their due reward and even more
The patience of such people are extremely precious, but the reward that the Almighty Allah will give them would certainly be better than their patience.
The above verse is one of the strangest verse of the Holy Quran. The Almighty Allah mentions three issues in the Holy Quran which tolerance, patience, perseverance and patience are needed so as to acquire them.
«أُوْلئِكَ يُؤْتَوْنَ أَجْرَهُم مَّرَّتَيْنِ»
These will receive double reward for their forbearance.
These people are the servants who will be rewarded twice. Their first reward is the heaven. The pleasure, peace of mind, being in eternal serenity in heaven, all of these are only on bonus and reward from almighty Allah.
What is the second reward and why are they given this reward?
Allah Almighty says:
بِمَا صَبَرُوا وَيَدْرَءُونَ بِالْحَسَنَةِ السَّيِّئَةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنْفِقُونَ
For their forbearance, replacing evil by virtue, and for their spending for the cause of God
Because they were the patient, they never go beyond the divine limits and they eliminated and resolved all the evils that the people did to them by their goodness.
