10. Visiting the sick is among the rights that we owe our Muslim brothers.

عن علي رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : للمسلم على المسلم ست بالمعروف يسلم عليه إذا لقيه ويجيبه إذا دعاه ويشمته إذا عطس ويعوده إذا مرض ويتبع جنازته إذا مات ويحب له ما يحب لنفسه. ) سنن الترمذي 2/98 )

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: "Each Muslim has six rights over his Muslim brother. When he meets him he should greet him (with salaam); if he invites him he should accept his invitation; when he sneezes (and says Alhamdulillah) he should reply to his sneeze by saying ‘Yarhamukallah’; when he falls ill he should visit him; when he passes away he should attend his Janaazah; and he should love for him what he loves for himself."

8. If it will not be causing any inconvenience, then one may ask the sick person to make Duaa to Allah Ta’ala on his behalf عن عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه قال

: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إذا دخلت على مريض فمره يدعو لك فإن دعاءه كدعاء الملائكة . (ابن ماجه ص104)

Hazrat Umar (radhiallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “When visiting the sick person, (if it is possible for you to ask him to make duaa on your behalf) then ask him to make duaa for you, for indeed his duaa is similar to the duaa of the angels (due to him being cleansed of his sins).

6. Whenever the opportunity arises to visit a Muslim who has fallen ill, do so even though the sick may not be from one’s family or friends.

عَن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلَّم : من توضأ فأحسن الوضوء وعاد أخاه المسلم محتسبا بوعد من جهنم مسيرة سبعين خريفا. (أبو داود ص441)

Hazrat Anas (radhiallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “The one who makes a perfect wudhu (i.e. through fulfilling all the sunan and mustahabbaat of wudhu) and sets out to visit his sick Muslim brother with the hope of receiving the reward for visiting the sick, such a person will be saved from Jahannum the distance of seventy years.”

لاَ بَأسَ طَهُورٌ إنْ شَاءَ اللهُ

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

3. One should not cause discomfort to the sick person by prolonging one’s stay. Rather, one should leave after a short while.

عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلَّى اللَّه عليه وسلم:العيادة فواق ناقة (شعب الايمان للبيهقي رقم 8786) 

Hadhrat Anas (radhiallahu 'anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) said: “Visiting the sick should be for the duration of the milking of a camel.”

عن ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال من السنة تخفيف الجلوس وقلة الصخب (مرقاة-باب عيادة المريض)

It is reported that Hadhrat ibn 'Abbaas (radhiallahu 'anhuma) said: “It is from the Sunnah to shorten one’s visit (by the sick) and to avoid making noise.”

1. Great virtues and rewards have been recorded in the Ahadith for visiting the sick.

عن علي رضي الله عنه قال سمعت رسول الله صلىَّ الله عليه و سلَّم يقول ما من مسلم يعود مسلما غدوة إلا صلَّى عليه سبعون ألف ملك حتى يمسى وإن عاده عشية إلا صلى عليه سبعون ألف ملك حتى يصبح وكان له خريف في الجنة ( الترمذي 1/116 )
