Matan Hadith

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، وَزُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، جَمِيعًا عَنْ يَزِيدَ، – وَاللَّفْظُ لِزُهَيْرٍ – حَدَّثَنَا يَزِيدُ بْنُ هَارُونَ، أَخْبَرَنَا عَاصِمٌ الأَحْوَلُ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ زَيْدٍ، – وَهُوَ أَبُو قِلاَبَةَ – عَنْ أَبِي الأَشْعَثِ الصَّنْعَانِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي أَسْمَاءَ الرَّحَبِيِّ، عَنْ ثَوْبَانَ، مَوْلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏”‏ مَنْ عَادَ مَرِيضًا لَمْ يَزَلْ فِي خُرْفَةِ الْجَنَّةِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قِيلَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا خُرْفَةُ الْجَنَّةِ قَالَ ‏”‏ جَنَاهَا ‏”‏ ‏.‏

Thauban, the freed slave of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: He who visits the sick is supposed to remain in the fruit garden of Paradise.

It was said: Allah’s Messenger, what is this Khurfat-ul-jannah?

He said: It is a place abounding in fruits.

أَذْهِبِ الْبَاسَ رَبَّ النَّاسِ اِشْفِ وَأَنْتَ الشَّافِي لَا شِفَاءَ إِلَّا شِفَاؤُكَ شِفَاءً لَا يُغَادِرُ سَقَمًا

O Lord of the people! Remove the difficulty and bring about healing as You are the Healer. There is no healing but Your Healing, a healing that will leave no ailment
