Jabir b. Abdullah reported that Messenger of Allah ﷺ visited Umm Sa'ib or Umm Musayyib and said: Umm Sa'ib or Umm Musayyib. why is it that you are shivering? She said:" It is fever and may it not be blessed by Allah, whereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: Don't curse fever for it expiates the sir of the posterity of Adam just as furnace removes the alloy of iron.
حَدَّثَنِي عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عُمَرَ الْقَوَارِيرِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا يَزِيدُ بْنُ زُرَيْعٍ، حَدَّثَنَا الْحَجَّاجُ الصَّوَّافُ،
حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو الزُّبَيْرِ، حَدَّثَنَا جَابِرُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم دَخَلَ عَلَى
أُمِّ السَّائِبِ أَوْ أُمِّ الْمُسَيَّبِ فَقَالَ ‏"‏ مَا لَكِ يَا أُمَّ السَّائِبِ أَوْ يَا أُمَّ الْمُسَيَّبِ تُزَفْزِفِينَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
قَالَتِ الْحُمَّى لاَ بَارَكَ اللَّهُ فِيهَا ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ‏"‏ لاَ تَسُبِّي الْحُمَّى فَإِنَّهَا تُذْهِبُ خَطَايَا بَنِي آدَمَ
كَمَا يُذْهِبُ الْكِيرُ خَبَثَ الْحَدِيدِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
