A believer is patient in trial and grateful in ease

muslim:2999Haddāb b. Khālid al-Azdī And Shaybān b. Farrūkh > Sulaymān b. al-Mughīrah Wa-al-Lafẓ Lishaybān > Sulaymān > Thābit > ʿAbd al-Raḥman b. Abū Laylá > Ṣuhayb

the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ said, "˹How˺ wondrous is the affair of a believer: for there is good in every affair of his, while that is not the case with anyone else except in the case of a believer: ˹i.e.,˺ if times of ease strike him, he is grateful which is good for him; and if times of distress strike him, he is patient, which is ˹also˺ good for him."  

مسلم:٢٩٩٩حَدَّثَنَا هَدَّابُ بْنُ خَالِدٍ الأَزْدِيُّ وَشَيْبَانُ بْنُ فَرُّوخَ جَمِيعًا؛ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ - وَاللَّفْظُ لِشَيْبَانَ؛ حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ؛ حَدَّثَنَا ثَابِتٌ؛ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي لَيْلَى؛ عَنْ صُهَيْبٍ قَالَ

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ «عَجَبًا لأَمْرِ الْمُؤْمِنِ۔ إِنَّ أَمْرَهُ كُلَّهُ خَيْرٌ۔ وَلَيْسَ ذَاكَ لأَحَدٍ إِلاَّ لِلْمُؤْمِنِ۔ إِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ سَرَّاءُ شَكَرَ فَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ، وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ ضَرَّاءُ صَبَرَ فَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُ۔»

[Machine] While the Messenger of Allah ﷺ was sitting with his companions, he started laughing. So, he said, "Do you not ask me why I am laughing?" They said, "O Messenger of Allah, why are you laughing?" He said, "I am amazed by the affairs of a believer. All of his matters are good for him. If he receives what he loves, he praises Allah and it is good for him. And if he receives what he dislikes, he remains patient and it is good for him. And not every person's matter is all good for him, except for the believer." 'Affan also narrated this, and Sulaiman narrated to us, and Thabit narrated it exactly in this wording, and I see it as a narration of Hammad, and we have also narrated it from him. He said, "Sulaiman narrated to us, and Thabit also narrated it from the wording of Abdul-Rahman, from Sulaiman, and this is from his book, which he read to us."

[Machine] The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, "I am amazed at the believer. If something good happens to him, he thanks Allah and praises Him. And if something bad happens to him, he thanks Allah and shows patience. The believer is rewarded for every action, even for the morsel of food he raises to his wife."

[Machine] While the Messenger of Allah ﷺ was sitting, he laughed and said, "Will you not ask me what I am laughing at?" They asked, "What made you laugh?" He said, "I am amazed at the affair of a believer; all of his matters are good for him. If something good befalls him, he thanks Allah, which is good for him. And if something bad befalls him, he observes patience, which is also good for him. This is not the case for any person except a believer."
