On the authority of Mu'awiyyah Ibn Iyas from his father (may Allah (SWT)  be pleased with him) who said once the Prophet (SM) did not see one of his Companions and he asked about him. The Companions replied,

"O Messenger of Allah (SWT) , his son who you have seen has died. Thereafter, the Prophet  (SM)  met him and asked him about his son and he told him that he died. The Prophet  (SM) consoled him then said, "Which of them is most beloved to you, to enjoy this worldly life with your son or to come tomorrow and find that your son preceded you to open whichever of the doors of Paradise you want. The man replied, "O the Prophet  (SM)  of Allah (SWT) , of course to advance me to Paradise and find it open for me is most beloved. The Prophet  (SM)  said, this is granted to you. The companions asked, as it exclusive for him or is it general for all Muslims? The Prophet  (SM) replied, "For all Muslims.1

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (may Allah (SWT)  be pleased with him) who said, "The Messenger of Allah (SWT)  went out to AI-Baqr and he saw a woman wailing on a grave. He said to her, "O the servant of Allah (SWT) , fear Allah (SWT)  and be patient". She replied, "O the servant of Allah (SWT) , if youwere afflicted with what I have been, you would excuse me!" The Prophet  (SM) said to her, "O servant of Allah (SWT) , fear Allah (SWT)  and be patient.She replied, "O the servant of Allah  (SWT) ,  I heard what you said, so let me alone. Abu Hurairah (RA) said, "The Prophet  (SM)  let her alone and therewas a man who witnessed this scene and came to this woman and asked her what did this man (the Prophet (SM )say to her? She told him what he said and with what she replied him. The man asked her did you know him? She replied, "No, By Allah (SWT) ." He said, "Woe to you! He is the Messenger of Allah (SWT)  (peace and blessings be uponhim). Thereupon, she quickly walked towards him until she reached him and said, "O Messenger of Allah (SWT) , I will be patient". The Prophet  (SM)  said, "Patience is at the time of the suddenness of the calamity."2 On the authority of Abu Hurairah (may Allah (SWT)  be pleased with him) who said, "The Messenger of Allah (SWT)  went out to AI-Baqr and he saw a woman wailing on a grave. He said to her, "O the servant of Allah (SWT) , fear Allah (SWT)  and be patient". She replied, "On the servant of Allah (SWT) , if youwere afflicted with what I have been, you would excuse me!" The Prophet  (SM) said to her, "O servant of Allah (SWT) , fear Allah (SWT)  and be patient.” She replied, "O the servant of Allah (SWT)  , I heard what you said, so let me alone. Abu Hurairah said, "The Prophet  (SM)  let her alone and therewas a man who witnessed this scene and came to this woman and asked her what did this man (the Prophet) (SM) say to her? She told him what he said and with what she replied him. The man asked her did you know him? She replied, "No, By Allah (SWT) ." He said, "Woe to you! He is the Messenger of Allah (SWT) (peace and blessings be uponhim). Thereupon, she quickly walked towards him until she reached him and said, "O Messenger ofAllah, I will be patient". The Prophet  (SM)  said, "Patience is at the time of the suddenness of the calamity."2

This means that the patience is more virtuous at the suddenness of the calamity, but after that, solace, of course, takes place.

In Sahih Muslim, it is reported that, "Once one of Abu Talha's sons died. His wife, Umm Salim said to his family, don't tell Abu Talha and Iwill tell him myself upon returning of Abu Talha, she offered the dinner for him and he ate and drank. Thenshe made up herself more than she did for him before that and Abu Talha had sexual intercourse with her. Upon realizing that he satisfied himself from her, she said, O Abu Talha (RA), what do you say about some people who lent something to others, then they demanded their right, do other people have the right todeny them this thing? He replied, "No". Umm Salim said, "Deem your son as a trust which returned to Allah (SWT) . Abu Talha (RA) got angry and said, do you leave me until I stain myself with you then you told me about my son. This, by Allah (SWT)  will never cause me to be patient. Then he went to the Messenger of Allah (SWT)  and told him about what had happened. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him said, "May Allah (SWT)  bless your night for you both.1

In another narration, it is reported that, "With the best and all-embracing good, no one is granted something better than patience.2 Ali Ibn Abi Talib (may Allah (SWT)  be pleased with him) said to Al-Ashas Ibn Qays, "Be committed to patience and count your dead as a trust which returned to Allah's keeping, otherwise you are behaving the way the animals do.
