There is this saying of one of the Infallibles (عليه السلام) that goes along the lines of

A problem that makes you lose to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is a trial. A problem that pulls you away from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is a curse (Azaab).


What is the exact saying? Any sources and exact attributions? I've been looking around for this and haven't been able to find much and would be very grateful for any help.

JazakAllah, thank you. Is it possible to find a source for this, like Bihar ul Anwar for example?
