Allah says in His Book,
“And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Saabireen (the patient ones, etc.).” [Soorah al-Baqarah: 155]
The Messenger (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,
“The example of the Believer is like the example of the tender shoot of a plant, its leaves bend in whichever direction the wind blows, and when it is calm it becomes straight. Thus is the Believer bent likewise by trials. The example of the Unbeliever is like that of the pine tree, unmoving and upright until Allaah cuts it down when He wishes.”
Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajr said, Al-Muhallab said in Fathul-Baaree (10/107),
“The meaning of the hadeeth is that the Believer obediently submits to whatever command of Allah comes to him. So if some good occurs for him he is happy with it and gives thanks, and if something disliked occurs for him he has patience, he hopes that it will produce a good reward, and if it is then repelled from him he stands straight and gives thanks. The unbeliever is not tried and tested by Allah. Rather, Allah makes matters easier for him so that he will be placed in greater hardship in the Hereafter. So when Allah wishes his destruction he breaks him so that his death is more severe for him, and he feels more pain as his soul is taken.”
Al-Qaaree said in Mirqaatul-Mafaateeh (4/18-19),
“The Believer is struck by different types of difficulties: ailments, poverty, or being downtrodden, as is related. But all of that is a sign of goodness and success and, as stated by Ibnul-Maalik, with the condition that he has patience, is satisfied, and is thankful…”

Our Shaykh Hasan al-Banna (hafidhahullah) will explain this noble aayah, thus clarify to us the affair regarding this ever-pertinent matter of having patience and by the Permission of Allah, this reminder will provide some solace to our hearts and renew our resolve to remain patient in times of difficulty.
We ask Allah to increase us in patience and we seek refuge in Him from becoming displeased with His Decree.
