A certain woman used to give birth to children but none of these children remained alive.All of them after six months became sick and died. In this manner twenty of her childrendied and went to the graveyard."Twenty children, one after the other, went that wayAnd this caused great sorrow to rise up in her".During the later part of the night, she rose up from her bed and fell down in prostrationbefore her Lord, crying bitterly in sorrow as she poured out her heart in supplication.Thereafter, she went to sleep, she saw in a dream, herself wandering around inparadise. She also saw a most beautiful mansion on which her name was written.From the beauty of the gardens of paradise and its splendour, she becamebesides herself with pleasure.The angels told her:"O Woman, generally these bounties from Allah (SWT) are acquired through theperformance of prayers and strenuous spiritual strivings. But because you wereinactive in that respect and thus unable to reach that position, Allah sent thosedifficulties to you in the world, during which you were patient. In return forthat patience, He grants you this paradise and this mansion".Then she saw her children there in paradise. She said: "0 Allah! these children ofmine were concealed from my sight, but they were never hidden from You. Herethey are all present. .0 Allah, if for a thousand years you keep me as I am today,I have no regret. Even if, You should shed my blood, I will be satisfied.For these favours are much more than my patience".
