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,
I praise Him for not making it a calamity in my religion. (Shurayh)
"If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee."
