Showing patience during times of affliction

A: Muslims should have patience and rely on Allah in times of distress by reciting: "Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return". You should beware of being discontent and uttering any foul statements. Allah (Exalted be He) states: ...but give glad tidings to As-Sâbirûn (the patient). Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly! To Allâh we belong and truly, to Him we shall return." They are those on whom are the Salawât (i.e. who are blessed and will be forgiven) from their Lord, and (they are those who) receive His Mercy, and it is they who are the guided ones. It was authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he stated: If any servant (of Allah) who suffers a calamity says:" We belong to Allah and to Him shall we return; O Allah, reward me for my affliction and give me something better than it in exchange for it,"' Allah will give him reward for affliction, and would give him something better than it in exchange. Related by Muslim. It is authentically reported that he (peace be upon him) also said: (Part No. 24; Page No. 444)  Wonderful are the affairs of a believer; for there is good in every affair of his; this is not the case with anyone else except a believer. If he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks (Allah), thus there is good for him in it; and if he suffers affliction, he endures patiently, which is good for him. Related by Muslim. Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated: "A Muslim, male or female, continues to remain under trial in respect of his life, property and offspring until he faces Allah, the Exalted, with no sin recorded". Related by Al-Tirmidhy who graded it as Sound and Sahih (authentic) Hadith. (Part No. 24; Page No. 445) We advise you to supplicate to Allah and turn to Him to remove your hardship, and that you take into consideration the permissible reasons because there is no disease except that Allah sends down its cure.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
