            • Abu Darda (Radi Allahu 'anhu) said: "I love three things that are hateful to people:
              'I love poverty, sickness, and death. I love them because:
              ✔-poverty is humility,
              ✔-sickness is expiation for sins &
              ✔-death results in a meeting with Allah.'

                  • The ibtilaa’ (testing) of the believer is like medicine for him. It cures him from illness. Had the illness remained it would destroy him or diminish his reward and level (in the hereafter). The tests and the trials extract these illnesses from him and prepare him for the perfect reward and the highest of degrees (in the life to come).”
                    -Ibnul Qayyim
