Abu Hurayrah said that fever presented itself before the Holy Prophet (ﷺ). It said to him, ’’Send me to those people with whom you have a very deep connection. The Prophet (ﷺ) sent it to the Ansar. So, fever gripped them for six days and six nights. Their feverish condition became very serious and the Prophet visited them at their homes. Thy complained of fever and the Holy Prophet (ﷺ) went to each house and prayed for their health. When he was returning, one of their women followed behind him and said, "By Him who has sent you with the truth, I am of the Ansar and my father is also one of the Ansar. Just as you have prayed for the Ansar, pray for me too." The Prophet sg asked her, "What is it that you wish? If you wish, I will pray to Allah that he grant you health but if you are patient then paradise is for you." She said, "I will endure (fever) patiently and will not risk (my chance of) admission to paradise."

حَدَّثَنَا قُرَّةُ بْنُ حَبِيبٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا إِيَاسُ بْنُ أَبِي تَمِيمَةَ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ أَبِي رَبَاحٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ‏:‏ جَاءَتِ الْحُمَّى إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَتِ‏:‏ ابْعَثْنِي إِلَى آثَرِ أَهْلِكَ عِنْدَكَ، فَبَعَثَهَا إِلَى الأَنْصَارِ، فَبَقِيَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ سِتَّةَ أَيَّامٍ وَلَيَالِيهِنَّ، فَاشْتَدَّ ذَلِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ، فَأَتَاهُمْ فِي دِيَارِهِمْ، فَشَكَوْا ذَلِكَ إِلَيْهِ، فَجَعَلَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَدْخُلُ دَارًا دَارًا، وَبَيْتًا بَيْتًا، يَدْعُو لَهُمْ بِالْعَافِيَةِ، فَلَمَّا رَجَعَ تَبِعَتْهُ امْرَأَةٌ مِنْهُمْ فَقَالَتْ‏:‏ وَالَّذِي بَعَثَكَ بِالْحَقِّ إِنِّي لِمَنَ الأَنْصَارِ، وَإِنَّ أَبِي لِمَنَ الأَنْصَارِ، فَادْعُ اللَّهَ لِي كَمَا دَعَوْتَ لِلأَنْصَارِ، قَالَ‏:‏ مَا شِئْتِ، إِنْ شِئْتِ دَعَوْتُ اللَّهَ أَنْ يُعَافِيَكِ، وَإِنْ شِئْتِ صَبَرْتِ وَلَكِ الْجَنَّةُ، قَالَتْ‏:‏ بَلْ أَصْبِرُ، ولا أَجْعَلُ الْجَنَّةَ خَطَرًا‏.‏
