"It is important to note that while suffering in this life is something that we cannot avoid, we should not be searching for it ... When a blessing comes to a believer, first of all they open up to it and appreciate it."
A believer will not seek for hardships but will be patience when tested with it. A believer will appreciate (have shukr) blessings, experience them and enjoy them.
Learn on how a believer would react on hardships and blessings from this book "The Beneficial Means To A Happy Life" by Sh. Moutasem AlHameedy.
