Hadith: Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “Do not curse fever, for it removes the sins of man just as a furnace removes rust from iron.” (Saheeh Muslim)

 Advice: Service to one’s mother

Hadhrat Muhammad bin Munkadir (rahmatullahi alaih) was a famous taabi`ee and from amongst the distinguished narrators of Hadeeth. He relates that once for the duration of the entire night I continued massaging the feet of my mother whilst my brother, Abu Bakr bin Munkadir (rahmatullahi alaih) was engaged in nafl Salaah throughout the night. However, I would not exchange the smallest bit of my night of service for the night of nafl worship. (Al-Mabsoot lis-Sarakhsi, vol. 10, p. 149)
