As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmutallahi Wa Baraakaatahu,

It’s your Sunnah Infographics Family here!

This week, we will be addressing the importance of visiting the sick…

As the flu season approaches and the change in weather begins to gradually get colder.

People within the community will begin to fall sick with the flu, the cold, influenza to name just a few..

So let’s delve into how we should conduct ourselves when this happens.

Ayat Al Qur’an - Surah Al Tawbah (The Repentance) - (9:71)

وَٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَٱلْمُؤْمِنَٰتُ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءُ بَعْضٍ يَأْمُرُونَ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ ٱلْمُنكَرِ وَيُقِيمُونَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَيُطِيعُونَ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥٓ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ سَيَرْحَمُهُمُ ٱللَّهُ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Those - Allah will have mercy upon them. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.

Hadeeth 1

Hadeeth 2

وعن علي رضي الله عنه قال‏: ‏ سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول‏: ‏ ‏"‏ما من مسلم يعود مسلماً غدوة إلا صلى عليه سبعون ألف ملك حتي يمسي، وإن عاده عشية إلا صلى عليه سبعون ألف ملك حتي يصبح، وكان له خريف في الجنة”

 ‏‏‏(‏رواه الترمذي وقال‏: ‏ حديث حسن‏)‏‏‏

 

'Ali bin Abu Talib (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, "When a Muslim visits a sick Muslim at dawn, seventy thousand angels keep on praying for him till dusk. If he visits him in the evening, seventy thousand angels keep on praying for him till the morning; and he will have (his share of) reaped fruits in Jannah."

[At- Tirmidhi].

Reflection Point

Over the winter season, it’s a time of great benefit for the Muslims with short days and long nights in some parts of the world.

But it can also be difficult for many who struggle with electricity bills, finding affordable food to eat and having very little company around.

With this in mind, it’s important for us as Muslims to reach out and visit family and friends in the community, who have especially fallen sick or ill. 

They are in need of having good company!

It falls under the rights of your fellow Muslim, and also creates love among you all. 

Let’s reflect on ourselves for a moment.

Do you remember the last time you fell sick?

Did someone visit you? 

If yes, how did that make you feel?

And if no, how did that make you feel?

Sometimes it can make a difference to a sick persons mood, energy or even health, without you even knowing. When you go, bring along with you some healthy snacks, fruit or even Sunnah Foods!
