Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I visited the Prophet ({PBUH) while he was suffering. I
said: "(O Messenger of Allah!) You suffer too much.'
He said,
"Yes, I suffer as much as two men of you.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith also throws light on the fact that the Prophet (PBUH) was merely a human being.
Besides, it tells us that one is at liberty to speak of one's suffering.

Sa`d bin Abu Waqqas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) came to
visit me when I had a severe pain. I said:
"I am suffering from such trouble as you are observing. I am a wealthy
man and the only heir of mine is my daughter.'' (Then Sa`d narrated the whole incident).
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Al-Qasim bin Muhammad reported `Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) said: "Oh, my head.'' (It was
hurting due to pain.) Thereupon the Prophet (PBUH) said,
"Rather it is I who says: `Oh, my headache.''' (Then Al-
Qasim narrated the complete narration).
`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) had a headache and she told the Prophet (PBUH) about it.
He said,
"My head too is splitting with pain.''
This means that a man can express the intensity of his pain and
suffering, provided he has no intention to complain against the Will of Allah and point out his sorrow and
frustration. Al-Qasim bin Muhammad bin Abu Bakr, the reporter of this Hadith, was `Aishah's nephew and one of
the seven distinguished jurists of Al-Madinah.
