Jabir said, "The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, visited Umm as-Sa'ib while she was sighing. He asked, 'What is wrong with you?' 'The fever,' she replied, "May Allah debase it!' The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'Gently! Do not curse it. It removes the errors of the believer as the bellows remove the dross of iron.'"

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ أَيُّوبَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا شَبَابَةُ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنِي الْمُغِيرَةُ بْنُ مُسْلِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِي الزُّبَيْرِ، عَنْ جَابِرٍ قَالَ‏:‏ دَخَلَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَلَى أُمِّ السَّائِبِ، وَهِيَ تُزَفْزِفُ، فَقَالَ‏:‏ مَا لَكِ‏؟‏ قَالَتِ‏:‏ الْحُمَّى أَخْزَاهَا اللَّهُ، فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ مَهْ، لاَ تَسُبِّيهَا، فَإِنَّهَا تُذْهِبُ خَطَايَا الْمُؤْمِنِ، كَمَا يُذْهِبُ الْكِيرُ خَبَثَ الْحَدِيدِ‏.‏
