Fatigue, grief, disease and worry atone sins

حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ بْنُ وَكِيعٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي، عَنْ أُسَامَةَ بْنِ زَيْدٍ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَمْرِو بْنِ عَطَاءٍ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، رضى الله عنه قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ مَا مِنْ شَيْءٍ يُصِيبُ الْمُؤْمِنَ مِنْ نَصَبٍ وَلاَ حَزَنٍ وَلاَ وَصَبٍ حَتَّى الْهَمُّ يَهُمُّهُ إِلاَّ يُكَفِّرُ اللَّهُ بِهِ عَنْهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِ ‏”‏

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that:

The Messenger of Allah said: “Nothing afflicts the believer, whether fatigue, grief, disease – even a worry that concerns him – except that by it, Allah removes something from his bad deeds.”


1.  There is wisdom behind everything that happens to a believer, be it good or bad.

2.  Fatigue, grief, disease or worry that befalls a believer expiates his sins and elevates his status.

3.  Even the smallest of hardships, such as a piercing one’s skin on a thorn or injuring one’s foot on a rock, will remove a believer’s sins as long as the they are accepting of it and persevere.

Let us all persevere in the face of hardship and pain. May it purify us of our sins.
