Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Indeed Allah Ta’ala tests his servant through sickness until that sickness wipes out all his sins”
Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. He has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs.
(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 348)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
