Ubaida ibn As-Samit reported: A man came to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and he said, “O Prophet of Allah, which deed is best?” The Prophet said, “Faith and belief in Allah and striving in his cause.” The man said, “O Messenger of Allah, I want something easier than that.” The Prophet said, “Behave with tolerance and patience.” The man said, “O Messenger of Allah, I want something easier than that.” The Prophet said, “Do not protest Allah the Exalted in what He has decreed for you.”

عن عبادة بن الصامت قال إِنَّ رَجُلًا أَتَى النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ يَا نَبِيَّ اللَّهِ أَيُّ الْعَمَلِ أَفْضَلُ قَالَ الْإِيمَانُ بِاللَّهِ وَتَصْدِيقٌ بِهِ وَجِهَادٌ فِي سَبِيلِهِ قَالَ أُرِيدُ أَهْوَنَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ السَّمَاحَةُ وَالصَّبْرُ قَالَ أُرِيدُ أَهْوَنَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ لَا تَتَّهِمِ اللَّهَ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى فِي شَيْءٍ قَضَى لَكَ بِهِ
