Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of complaint during illness
Hadith #1

حدثنا جعفر بن محمد بن مسرور - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا الحسين بن محمد بن عامر، عن عمه عبد الله بن عامر، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن جميل بن صالح، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: إنما الشكوى أن تقول: لقد ابتليت بما لم يبتل به أحد، أو تقول: لقد أصابني ما لم يصب أحد، وليس الشكوى أن تقول: سهرت البارحة، وحممت اليوم، ونحو هذا.

1. We were told by Ja’far bin Muhammed bin Masrur, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Hussain bin Muhammed bin ‘Amer, from his paternal uncle, Abdullah bin ‘Amer, from Muhammed bin Abi Umayr, from Jameel bin Saleh, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: A complaint is only that you say: «Verily, I have been afflicted with what none has been afflicted with» or that you say: «Verily, it has hit me what has not hit anyone». A complaint is not that you say: «I remained awake yesterday» and «I had a fever today» and similar to this.
