some say, he's patient because he has the willing to wait.
some say, she's patient because she can bear the burdens on her own.
some say, they're patient because they are strong at heart to go through the tests in their life.
the list may go
i found one of the meaning is that patience is when we're not telling others about things that we feel it like testing our patience. ^.^
i've googled 'sabar' and 'patience in Qur'an'. here are some of my findings... :)
introduction of The Importance of Patience in the Qur'an by Harun Yahya
....how Allah may test people so that they can acquire a more perfect patience, and the great return Allah promises to those who exhibit great patience.
Examples of how the Prophets showed patience in every area until the end of their lives will be presented in the hope that people will "be steadfast for our Lord" until the end of their own lives. (Surat al-Muddaththir, 7)
Imam Ahmad rahimahullah said, “Allah has mentioned patience in the Qur’an in 90 places.”
Patience in the Qur’an: Six Benefits
1. Instruction: Patience is enjoyed upon the Believers.
وَاصْبِرْ وَمَا صَبْرُكَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ
And endure patiently, your patience is not but from Allah. (16:127)
وَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ فَإِنَّكَ بِأَعْيُنِنَا
So wait patiently for the Decision of your Lord, for verily, you are under Our Eyes. (52:48)
2. That which is opposite to patience is forbidden
So wait with patience for the Decision of your Lord, and be not like the Companion of the Fish – when he cried out (to Us) while he was in deep sorrow. (68:48)
3. Patience is made a condition of success and prosperity
O you who believe! Endure and be more patient, and guard your territory by stationing army units permanently at the places from where the enemy can attack you, and fear Allah, so that you may be successful. (3:200)
4. The reward of those who exercise patience is doubled
These will be given their reward twice over, because they are patient, and repel evil with good, and spend out of what We have provided them. (28:54)
Only those who are patient shall receive their reward in full, without reckoning. (39:10)
Sulayman ibn Qasim said, “the reward of every deed is known, except for the reward of patience which will be like heavy rain.”
5. Patience and emaan are pre-requisites for leadership in religion
And We made from among them (Children of Israel), leaders, giving guidance under Our Command, when they were patient and used to believe with certainty in Our Ayat. (32:24)
6. Patience is the way to earn the Companionship of Allah
And be patient. Surely, Allah is with those who are patient. (8:46)
