30. Happiness in fever
One day, the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ erases the sins of a Muslim due to the trouble which befalls his body.’ Hearing this, Sayyidunā Ubay Bin Ka’b رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ made the following Du’ā, ‘O Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! Until my death, I ask You for such fever which does not prevent me from offering Ṣalāĥ, fasting, Hajj, ‘Umraĥ and fighting in Your cause.’ His Du’ā was accepted. The narrator stated that Sayyidunā Ubay Bin Ka’b رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ had fever all the time until he passed away. Even in this feverish state, he used to come to the Masjid, fast, perform Hajj and ‘Umraĥ and take part in battles. (Kanz-ul-‘Ummāl, vol. 3, pp. 299, Ḥadīš 8633)
May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on him and forgive us without accountability for his sake!

The Prophet of Raḥmaĥ, the Intercessor of Ummaĥ صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘Do not speak ill of fever because it cleanses the Muslim of sins as fire removes rust from iron.’ (Sunan Ibn Mājaĥ, vol. 4, pp. 104, Ḥadīš 3469)
