How those before you dealt with blessings and trials

Wahb ibn Munabbih 110 AH (may Allah have mercy on him) said,

إِنَّ مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمْ كَانَ إِذَا أَصَابَ أَحَدَهُمْ بَلَاءٌ عَدَّهُ رَخَاءً ، وَ إِذَا أَصَابَهُ رَخَاءٌ عَدَّهُ بَلَاءً

“Verily, there were those before you, when a trail befell them, they counted it as a blessing, and when a blessing befell them they counted it as a trial.
