Hadith 2 - Patient

Allah's Apostle said, "If Allah wants to do good to somebody, He afflicts him with trials." I never saw anybody suffering so much from sickness as Allah's Apostle

The messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "When Allah intends good for His slave, He punishes him in the world, but when He intends an evil for His slave, He does not hasten to taken him to task but calls him to account on the Day of Resurrection".

The messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "He whom Allah intends good, He makes him to suffer from some affliction".

Explanation: Troubles of this world like grief, calamity, disease, poverty, loss of life and property, etc., have a benign aspect for a Muslim in the sense that on account of them he turns towards Allah and begs mercy and compassion from Him because of which his sins are forgiven. Thus, in these troubles there is a blessing for him in the Hereafter.

Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that."

Volume 8, Book 76, Number 432:
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "Allah says, 'I have nothing to give but Paradise as a reward to my believer slave, who, if I cause his dear friend (or relative) to die, remains patient (and hopes for Allah's Reward)."

Narrated 'Abdullah:

I visited the Prophet during his ailments and he was suffering from a high fever. I said, "You have a high fever. Is it because you will have a double reward for it?" He said, "Yes, for no Muslim is afflicted with any harm but that Allah will remove his sins as the leaves of a tree fall down."
