Visiting the sick and keeping ties with the kin
I start with the name of Allah, praise be to Him. I humbly ask Allah to raise the rank of Prophet Muhammad and his kind Al and Companions and to protect his nation from that which he fears for them.
I first command myself and you all to obey Allah, the Lord of the worlds, by performing the obligations, avoiding the unlawful matters, and following the path of Prophet Muhammad.
Islam is the True religion, and the only Religion, Allah ordered His slaves to follow. No matter how some people fabricate lies against Islam, or try to deceive its followers, they always fail to find any imperfection in this Religion as it is impeccable and perfect.
The Prophet, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, focused on organizing the social relationships between the members of the nation; he taught us to obey our parents, to treat them kindly, to maintain the ties of kinship and to visit the sick.
Dear Brothers, among the guidance and teaching of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is what was narrated by At-Tirmidhiyy that the Prophet peace been upon him said what means: “whenever a Muslim visits his sick brother in the morning 70,000 angels will accompany him and ask Allah to forgive him until the evening, likewise if he visits him at the evening 70,000 angels will accompany him and ask Allah to forgive him until the morning, and he will be rewarded with a garden in paradise”.
Abu Hurayrah, may Allah accept his deeds, related that the Prophet, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, said what means: “The one who relieves a brother from one of the worldly distressing matters, Allah will relieve him from one of the distressing matters of the Hereafter. The one who eases the hardship of an insolvent person, Allah will eases his difficulties in this world and in the Hereafter. The one who conceals a shortcoming of a Muslim, Allah will conceal his shortcomings in this world and in the Hereafter. Allah will support the slave so long the slave assists his brother. The one who follows a path seeking knowledge, Allah will facilitate a route for him to Paradise.” Narrated by Muslim.
In the end, we ask Allah to help us become righteous; to guide us to do what is beneficial for us in this world, and in the Hereafter, and Allah Knows best.
