The Second Subject: Calamity and Pleasure

If a holy traveler is confronted with calamity, they must be satisfied instead of running away until the calamity goes away.They must not set their heart on happiness and pleasure when taking place. The reason is, when they escape from calamity, it would be converted to bitterness, and when they are proud of delight, it would be changed to misery upon them.
Imam Sadiq (PBUH) uttered, “If a believer knew what would be saved for them because of enduring calamities, they would wish to be fragmented by scissors.”
