The patience of Tobias [or Tobit]: Loqman

Tobias in the Quran is called Loqman .. but none of Muslims and non-Muslims knew who is this Loqman .. and it was a miracle of the Quran interpretation when Abu abd-Allah said: Loqman in the Quran is the same Tobias in the Bible, and only God mentioned him with his title or surname: his excellent kindness so that he put the 'loqma' or the morsel in the mouth of the poor.

Tobias exhorted his son (who bore the same name: Tobias)

Quran 31:17, which means:
("My son,
>> perform the prayers,
>> enjoin the right,
>> forbid the wrong
>> and forbear patiently that which afflicts you;
for such [good manners, with which I am admonishing you] are among the firm morale of the am'rs [: the prophets and the angels.]"
r)
.................................................. ..............................

17 r i.e. such good manners of behavior are among the good manners of the prophets ‘having the firm will and determination’, and among the good manners of angels and their holding firmly with them; and by such manners and works the prophets and angels attained their position before God.

It seems that Tobias the son was afflicted by some mishap and then his father Tobias exhorted him to have patience; because the patience in affliction is recommended just as how the gratitude is recommended for the blessing and bounty of God.

Quran 42: 33, which means:
(Surely in that are [indicative] signs for every steadfast c and grateful d [man.])
.................................................. ..........................

33 c About God’s obedience [and being patient in the affliction.]
33 d To God’s bounties.

This expression has been repeated in at least 4 ayat of the Quran.

Quran 31: 12, which means:
(We did give wisdom a to Luqman b [: Tobias];
[We revealed to him:] "Give thanks to God
c ;
for whosoever gives thanks, he only gives thanks for [the advantage of] his own soul
d ;
but whosoever is ungrateful, then surely God is Absolute [in independence of the thanksgiving
e ], [and] Worthy of Praise [for His bounties.]")
.................................................. ...............................

12 a That is the knowledge and admonition which God gave him on account of his righteousness and piety.

12 b Luqman [: Tobias] was one of the Children of Israel, of the tribe of Naphtali; he resided in Palestine in Galilee, in the time of Rehoboam son of Solomon.
His name was Tobias, and in fact God surnamed him in the Quran as Loqman, because [as the word in Arabic implies] he used to feed the poor and needy and to put the 'loqma' or the morsel in their mouths, and that was according to his kind heart and good conduct.
The name of his wife was Anna who bore for him a son whom he named in his same name [Tobias] also.
He was pious and righteous, enjoining the right and forbidding the wrong, and commanding his people to obey God.
His story is mentioned in details in the Torah collection [the Bible: the Old Testament], the Book of Tobias (or Tobiah) according to his name.

12 c For that He guided you, and gave to you the wisdom and the righteous son.

12 d It means: the reward of his gratitude will be for himself, and he will get more blessings of God.
The indication of this is His saying – be glorified – in the Quran 14: 7, which means:
("If you are thankful, I will surely increase you[r blessing.])
It means: I will increase your bounties, in addition to what bounties you already have.

12 e Of the grateful.
