Riyad as-Saliheen 35

'Ata' bin Abu Rabah reported:
Ibn 'Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) asked him whether he would like that he should show him a woman who is from the people Jannah. When he replied that he certainly would, he said, "This black woman, who came to the Prophet ﷺ and said, 'I suffer from epilepsy and during fits my body is exposed, so make supplication to Allah for me.' He ﷺ replied: 'If you wish you endure it patiently and you be rewarded with Jannah, or if you wish, I shall make supplication to Allah to cure you?' She said, 'I shall endure it.' Then she added: 'But my body is exposed, so pray to Allah that it may not happen.' He (Prophet ﷺ) then supplicated for her".

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

وعن عطاء بن أبي رباح قال: قال لي ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما: ألا أريك امرأة من أهل الجنة " فقلت: بلى، قال: هذه المرأة السوداء أتتت النبي ﷺ فقالت : إني أصرع، و إني أتكشف، فادع الله تعالى لي قال: "إن شئت صبرت ولك الجنة، وإن شئت دعوت الله تعالى أن يعافيك" فقالت: أصبر، فقالت: إني أتكشف ، فادع الله أن لا أتشكف ، فدمعا لها. ((متفق عليه)) .
