How to react to calamities
“If Allah strikes me with calamity I will thank Allah for four things:
1) That the test was not in my deen.
2) The calamity could have been worse.
3) It is an expiation for my sins.
4) Any loss after losing the Prophet (salla Allah ‘alihi wasallam) is nothing"
(Quote from Umar Ibn Al-Khattab on how he reacted to calamities)
