The non-believers did everything to lessen his trust in Allah, but he remained strong. His patience was beyond limits; he never complained of his suffering to Allah SWT.
Similarly, Prophet Jacob, on the separation of his beloved son, Prophet Yusuf (AS), felt extreme pain but never did anything that could become a reason for Allah’s displeasure. He always prayed to Allah and remained patient. So, we should learn from the patience of Prophet Jacob and be thankful to Allah SWT.

Then, Allah taught him some supplications and restored his health and wealth.
