Patience is in the face of hardships and troubles experienced, and showing steadiness by turning negative situations into positive ones; gratitude is shown for the blessings and goodness coming from God or man and is expressed in words and phrases. One of ahl al-Sunnah scholars, Abu Mansur al-Maturidite (ö. 333 / 944) also used gratitude and patience concepts close to each other although there is a nuance. And patience is used for accepting the calamities and scourges, gratitude is used for accepting the blessings from God. Not only God tested Adam whether he will approach the forbidden tree, but also He is testing Adam‘s sons in every state and situation with patience and gratitude. This trial takes place with the servant‘s patience towards calamities and scourges and his/her gratitude for the blessings. Whatever the servant is exposed to is the necessity of wisdom and a secret reason. Thus, Maturidite influenced the subsequent scholars with his wisdom view on patience and gratitude. This study will evaluate the views of Maturidi on patience and gratitude.
