It is said that once Hasan al-Basri had a very sharp headache, so he tied a bandana over his head. Rabia Basri saw him and inquired the cause for the bandana, to which Hasan al-Basri told her of the headache.

Rabia Basri asked him if this headache is something he gets often. Hasan al-Basri replied that Allah has blessed him with good health and it is after many years that he had a headache this severe.

“Is it not strange that Allah gave you good health for years, and then when He afflicts you with some pain, you wear a banner on your head to advertise your pain?”
Hasan al-Basri says that after that day he never ever complained of any harship he faced.

I don’t know the authenticity, but I often marvel at the lesson. How thankful are we in the times of ease and how we complain in the times of difficulty? May Allah save us from hypocrisy.

any comments inshalah?

I think it's simply amazing. If we happened to be in his place.. we would have probably said.."Oh, i don care what people think of the bandana, let them think i'm trying to catch some attention.I'm wearing it to ease ma headache".. but Hasan al basri (May Allah have mercy on him) made sure there wouldn't be a gap for any sort of hypocrisy.

Is this story authentic sis? If it was then it's just a wonderful example of the level of Iman those Imams had Subhanallah.....
Although it's not haram to complain of pain, since we know that once Rasulullah peace be upon him had a headache and he told Aisha "Waa Ra'saah" O My head .
But I think most of us go overboard when complain about sicknesss and all of that :( and we make a big deal out of it......and the irony about it, is that when we get better, we even forget to say Alhamdulillah!! :(
