For Muslims, prayers are miraculous. They are sent to us as a blessing but not only for the Muslim’s community but for the mankind, belonging to any religion.

Patience is the real virtue of Islam and it emphasizes greatly over patience. It brings great fruits to our life as shown with the practical example of our Beloved Prophet (PBUH) life. On one more place, it is said that as,
"Verily, Allah is with the patient" Surah AL-Baqarah: 153
And utterly we have also seen that history of Islam gloriously relies on the abundant examples of patience.
One place it is said in Quran,
And the Messengers were belied before you, but they endured patiently when they were belied and were persecuted until our help came to them. And there is none to change the words of Allah, and the news of the Messengers has already come to you. (Sura Al-Anaam Ayat 34)
The people with great patience will be rewarded in the life and the hereafter as well as we have seen that people with patience get larger rewards. People with less patience complaint about more problem in life as compared to the people who live with patience. Hence, patience is one the reducing stress factor, therefore, it is named as the shield against the oriented stress issues of health.
