Shuraih Al-Qaadhiy’s Thankfulness When Afflicted With a Calamity
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shuraih Al-Qaadhiy [rahimahullaah] said: Indeed [when] afflicted by a calamity, I praise Allaah four times: I praise Allaah for not making the calamity greater than what it is. I praise Allaah for granting me patience. I praise Allaah for the reward I hope for in that calamity and I praise Allaah for not placing that calamity in the affairs of my religion.
