The most important aspect of obedience to Allah is being content with and being patient with what Allah has decreed whether we like it or not. And when one is content with what Allah has decreed for him, whether he likes it or not, that which is decreed is best for him.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)

عن الباقر قال: قال رسول الله : إنّ الله جلّ ثناؤه يقول: وعزّتي وجلالي! ما خلقتُ مِن خَلقي خَلقا أحبّ إليَّ من عبدي المؤمن ولذلك سمّيته باسمي مؤمناً؛ لأُحرّمه ما بين المشرق والمغرب وهي خيرةٌ له منّي، وإنّي لأُملّكه ما بين المشرق والمغرب وهي خيرةٌ له منّي، فليرض بقضائي، وليصبر على بلائي، وليشكر نعمائي، أكتبه يا محمّد من الصدّيقين عندي.

Imam Baqir (a.s) quoted on the authority of the Prophet of Allah (a.s) Allah the Almighty said: “I swear by My Majesty and My Honor that I have not created any creature dearer to Me than a believer. That is why I put My own name (believer) on him. He should be content with My action if I deprive him of whatever lies between the East and the west, or if I bestow on him whatever exists between the East and the West. He should be patient with any catastrophes that I descend upon him, and he should be grateful for My blessings. O' Muhammad! Please record his name among the honest ones near Me.”

Imam Hassan Mujtaba (a.s) met Abdullah ibn Ja'far and told him: “O' Abdullah! How can one be a believer if he is not content with what Allah has destined for him; and considers his position to be low even though Allah has destined it for him. I guarantee that the supplications of those who think only of Allah's pleasure will be accepted.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)

عنه قال: الروحُ والراحة في الرضا واليقينُ، والهمّ والحزن في الشكّ والسخط.

وقال : أُجريَ القلم في محبّة الله، فمن أصفاه الله بالرضا فقد أكرمه، ومَن ابتلاه بالسخط فقد أهانه، والرضا والسخط خَلقان مِن خلق الله، والله يزيد في الخلق ما يشاء.

Religious knowledge guides us towards love for Allah. Allah will honor those who were chosen by Allah for their contentment, and Allah will debase those who make Him angry. Contentment and anger are two of Allah's creatures, and He will increase which ever He pleases.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)

قال أمير المؤمنين : إنّما يجتمع الناس بالرضا والسخط، فمن رضيَ أمراً فقد دخل فيه، ومن سخط فقد خرج منه.

عن الرضا عن آبائه: قال: رُفع إلى رسول الله قومٌ في بعض غزواته فقال: مَن القوم؟ فقالوا: مؤمنون يا رسول الله، قال: وما بلغ من إيمانكم؟ قالوا: الصبرُ عند البلاء، والشكرُ عند الرخاء، والرضا بالقضاء، فقال رسول الله : حُلماء عُلماء كادوا من الفقه أنْ يكونوا أنبياء، إن كنتم كما تصفون فلا تبنوا ما لا تسكنون، ولا تجمعوا ما لا تأكلون، واتّقوا الله الّذي إليه تُرجعون.

Imam Reza (a.s) quoted on the authority of his noble grandfather (a.s): “A group of people went to visit Allah's Prophet (a.s) in one of the battles. The Prophet (a.s) asked them from which tribe they were. They told him that they were of the believers. He asked them about the degree of their faith. They replied: “We are patient during times of hardship, we are grateful during times of poverty, and we are content with what Allah has destined for us.” The Prophet (a.s) said: “Those people are so wise and knowledgeable that they are nearly in the position of Prophets.” Then he faced them and said: “Then if you are what you claim to be, do not build what you will not live in; do not collect what you will not eat; and fear Allah to whom is your return.”
Imām Alī ibn Mūsā al-Rezā (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 7 on Contentment, Hadees 144

عن عليّ بن الحسين قال: الصبرُ والرضا عن الله رأسُ طاعة الله، ومَن صَبر ورضيَ عن الله فيما قضى عليه فيما أحبّ أو كره لم يقض الله له فيما أحبّ أو كره إلاّ ما هو خير له.

Perseverance and contentment with divine destiny are the highest forms of Allah's worship. Allah will only destine what is beneficial for those who are patient and content with what Allah destines for them-whether they like it or not.
Imām `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 7 on Contentment, Hadees 145

دخل بعض أصحاب أبي عبد الله في مرضه الّذي توفّى فيه إليه وقد ذبل فلم يبق إلا رأسه فبكى، فقال: لأيّ شيءٍ تبكي؟ فقال: لا أبكي وأنا أراك على هذه الحال؟! قال: لا تفعل فإنّ المؤمن تعرّض كلّ خيرٍ؛ إنْ قطع أعضاؤه كان خيرا له، وإنْ ملك ما بين المشرق والمغرب كان خيرا له.

One of the companions of Imam Sadiq (a.s) went to see him. The Imam (a.s) was seriously ill and near death. He saw that the Imam (a.s) was very weak, and he cried. Imam Sadiq (a.s) asked why he cried. He said: “Should I not cry seeing you this way?” “Do not cry. Believers are always receiving what is good for them. Be it they lose a part of their body, or they become the owner of whatever lies between the East and the West, it is good for them.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 7 on Contentment, Hadees 146

عن أمير المؤمنين قال: شُكرُ كلّ نعمةٍ الورع عن محارم الله.

Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 7 on Contentment, Hadees 147

عن أبي جعفر قال: كان رسول الله عند عائشة ليلتها، قالت: يا رسول الله، ولم تُتعِب نفسك وقد غُفِرَ لك ما تقدّم من ذنبك وما تأخّر؟ فقال: يا عائشة، ألا أكون عبداً شكوراً؟ قال: وكان رسول الله يقوم على أصابع رجليه؛ فأنزل الله: ]طه * ما أنزْلْنا عَلَيْكَ الْقُرْآنَ لِتَشْقى.[

“One night when the Prophet (a.s) was in Ayeshah's room, she asked him: “O' Prophet of Allah! Why is it that you always put yourself to so much trouble, even though all your past and future sins are forgiven?” He replied: “O' Ayeshah! Should I not be grateful?” Ayeshah said: “Allah's Prophet (a.s) always stood up on his toes.” Then the following verse was revealed: “We have not sent down the Quran to thee to be (an occasion) for thy distress.”
