Hadith on Patience: The woman of Paradise because of her patience

Ata’ ibn Abi Rabah reported: Ibn Abbas said to me, “Shall I not show you a woman of Paradise?” I said, “Of course.” Ibn Abbas said, “There was a dark-skinned woman who came to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and she said: Indeed, I suffer seizures and I become uncovered, so supplicate to Allah for me. The Prophet said: If you wish you can be patient and have Paradise, or if you wish I will supplicate for Allah to heal you. She said: I will be patient, but supplicate to Allah that I will not become uncovered. Thus, the Prophet supplicated for her.”
