Abu Hurayrah (a Companion) narrated:

“The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘If Allah wants good for a person, He tests him with afflictions.’”

Al-Baaji (a scholar) said: “This means that they will be tested with sickness that affects their health, having their wealth taken which affects their riches, being sad which affects their happiness, and having distress which affects the overall wellbeing of their state (of mind, health and so on), and if that person is patient hoping for the reward with Allah in return (for his patience), then that would be a means that ends with reaching the good that Allah wanted for them.”

Anas ibn Maalik narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said:

“The greatness of reward depends on the greatness of the affliction, and if Allah loves a people, He tests them, so whoever is happy with that, then Allah will be happy with them, and whoever is angered by that, then Allah will be angry with them.”

Al-Mubaarakpoori (a scholar) said: “Meaning, whoever is pleased with what Allah The Almighty has tested them with will attain Allah’s pleasure and will receive plentiful reward, and whoever is angered by Allah’s test, panics because of it, and is not pleased with His decree, then such a person earns Allah’s anger and severe punishment, for anyone who does anything evil will be accounted for it. The meaning of this narration is to commend patience in the wake of trials.”

Al-Harawi (a scholar) said: “Among the pearls of righteousness is to keep afflictions a secret, to the point that others think that you have not been afflicted by anything.”
