Patience in Times of Sickness

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, said: “I entered upon the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, when he was sick and had a high temperature. I put my hand on the cover with which he was covering himself and I could feel the heat of his fever. I said, ‘How strong is your fever, O Messenger of Allah!’ He said:

 ’We Prophets are like that: our pain is multiplied so our rewards will be multiplied.’” (Recorded in Ahmad)

Jabir ibn Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, said that the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, entered upon a woman and asked her, ‘Why are you shivering like that?’ She said, ‘It is because of fever’ and cursed the fever. The Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said:

 ‘Do not slander fever, because it takes away many wrong actions, just as the blacksmith bellows remove dross and impurities from iron.’ (Recorded in Muslim)

It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said:

‘By the One Whose hand is in my soul, there is no qada’ that Allah decrees for the believer but it is good for him. If Allah decrees that he will go through a time of ease, the believer will be grateful, and that is good for him. If Allah decrees that he will suffer some affliction, he will be patient, and that is also good for him. This applies only to the believers.’ (Recorded in Ahmad)
