What is the source of this Hadith?

‘And know that victory [help/assistance] comes through patience and that the grant [relief] comes after the affliction [distress].’



This is part of a lengthy narration in which Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) offered several advices to Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu’anhuma).

(Musnad Ahmad, vol.1 pg.307-308 & Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2516)

Declared authentic (hasan sahih) by Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah).
