From sunnah.com:

Strange are the ways of a believer for there is good in every affair of his and this is not the case with anyone else except in the case of a believer for if he has an occasion to feel delight, he thanks (God), thus there is a good for him in it, and if he gets into trouble and shows resignation (and endures it patiently), there is a good for him in it. —Sahih Muslim, Book 55, Hadith 82

Is there a version of this hadith (or a similar hadith) where it says (something like), “something good happens and the believer says alhamdulillah; or something bad happens, and the believer says alhamdulliah.”


As far as I looked, there is no hadith specifically like the one you quoted that mentions "Alhamdulillah" in good and bad situations.

However, as commented by UmH already, there is a hadith similar to what you are looking for but it is about the Prophet (SAW):

"When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saw something he liked, he would say: 'Al-hamdu lillahil-ladhi bi ni'matihi tatimmus-salihat (Praise is to Allah by Whose grace good deeds are completed).' And if he saw something that he disliked, he would say: 'Al-hamdu lillahi 'ala kulli hal (Praise is to Allah in all circumstances).'" (Sunan Ibn Majah)

This hadith was considered Sahih by Al-Albani. In addition, Al-Hakim said it has a Sahih isnad. But, as you can see, Darussalam grades it as weak.
