The righteous servant is refined through tribulation

Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) said,

“Son of Adam! Do not rejoice at wealth
and do not despair at poverty.
Do not become despondent at the onset of tribulation
and do not rejoice at the onset of ease
for gold is refined through fire
and the righteous servant is refined through tribulation.
You will not attain what you want except by leaving what you desire
and you will not reach what you aspire to except through patience.
Expend all your efforts in carefully fulfilling the duties made obligatory upon you.”

[Trials and Tribulations – Wisdom and Benefits]
