Anas ibn Maalik said:

“The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, passed by a woman who was crying by the grave of one of her children, so the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said to her: ‘Be conscious of Allah and practice patience.’ She responded by saying: ‘Go away from me, you have not been through what I have been through,’ but she did not know that she was speaking to the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. Afterwards, the woman was told: ‘That was the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, (that was speaking to you).’ So she went to the house of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and did not see any guards at his door1 , and she said to him: ‘I did not know it was you.’ The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, replied: ‘Patience is at the first shock of the calamity.’”

Al-Khattaabi (a scholar) said: “The meaning is that the patience for whichan individual is commended is that which occurs at the shock of the exact moment that the calamity befalls, and not after that, because an individual forgets with the passing of days.”

That is why it is said that everything begins small and then grows except a calamity, for it starts out large, then gets smaller with the progression of time
