Keywords: haste, appreciated and depreciated haste, thinking, patience


The main questions addressed in this study are: What is the meaning of haste? When is haste appreciated or depreciated according to the Islamic ethics and narratives? What are the consequences of depreciated haste? And how can one prevent depreciated haste and its consequences?
According to the findings of this study, mankind as the apostle of creatures has the full authority and power to do things, but he is required to do an all-inclusive analysis of all of his life affairs, and in order to achieve his desirable and perfect goals, he must refrain from haste and rush. In addition, if the meaning of haste is clarified in the individual and social life of mankind, its constructive and influential role in life aspects will be determined. When haste comes with components like neglecting preoperative thinking, it will be a major obstacle to peace and construction.
As the findings of this study suggested, the negative consequences of haste can be prevented by trusting in God, foresight and prudence in life affairs, strengthening peace of mind, raising the threshold of tolerance, and taking expert actions and sound planning.
