    “It is reported that Shurayh – Allah have mercy on him – said, “If I am afflicted with a calamity, I praise Allah for it four times, I praise Him because it wasn’t worse than it was, I praise Him when He gives me the patience to bear it, I praise Him for enabling me to say Al-Istirja (‘To Allah we belong and to Him we will return’) in hope of a great reward, and I praise Him for not making it a calamity in my religion.” (Source: ‘Al-Dhahabi Siyar A’lam Al-Nubala, in his biography of Shuyrah Al-Qadi)
