Rejoicing when in difficulty

Q: Is it correct according to Islam that a believer rejoices on his suffering too because suffering produces endurance?

A: If he expresses pain, but together with expressing pain he is also pleased with the decision and decree of Allah Ta`ala then this is correct.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
