A du’a to recite when visiting the sick

What is the reference for the following?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) visited a sick villager, and whenever he would visit the sick he would recite the following du’a:

لاَ بَأسَ طَهُورٌ إنْ شَاءَ اللهُ

La ba’sa tahurun insha Allah


Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3616)


Do not grieve, insha Allah through this sickness you will obtain purity (from your sins)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
