Is the human being impatient according to the holy Quran?

SHAFAQNA – According to the holy Quran, the human being is impatient and considers impatience as one of the characteristics of the human being. This is mentioned in Ayah 72 of Surah Al-Ahzab: “Mankind has always been inept and impatient.” And in Ayah 37 of Surah Al-Anbiya, it is mentioned: “Mankind was created in haste; God will show Divine Signs soon, so do not ask God to hasten them.”

This characteristic in the human being makes him/her to express wishes before their allocated time, as mentioned in Ayah 38 of Surah Al-Anbiya: “They ask: “When will this promise be fulfilled, if what you say is true?” Meaning, the human being wants for example a punishment to occur before its allocated time, which shows the impatience, and this characteristic is harmful to the human being. In Ayah 11 of Surah Al-Isra, Allah (SWT) said: “Yet human being prays for harm, just as he/she prays for good; mankind is ever hasty.” Impatience causes the human being to lose focus and not realize that a blessing is good or bad, because having received a blessing does not mean it is good in future.
