Dr. Abdul-Aziz as-Sadhaan said, ‘Shaikh Esaam Haadi said, ‘When our Shaikh, may Allaah have mercy on him, was admitted to hospital I visited him and asked how he was.
He praised Allaah and then said, ‘So far they have performed more than one endoscopic procedure on me but the cause of the illness is still not clear. And these operations hurt me a great deal. But I seek aid in overcoming them by remembering Allaah and thinking of what happened to our brothers in the way of Allaah, so I say, ‘What have we been through in comparison to what they went through?’
Then he cried, may Allaah have mercy on him.’’
