The Benefits of Praising Allah When Visiting the Sick

Matan Hadith

عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِذَا مَرِضَ الْعَبْدُ بَعَثَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى إِلَيْهِ مَلَكَيْنِ فَقَالَ انْظُرَا مَاذَا يَقُولُ لِعُوَّادِهِ فَإِنْ هُوَ إِذَا جَاءُوهُ حَمِدَ اللَّهَ وَأَثْنَى عَلَيْهِ رَفَعَا ذَلِكَ إِلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ فَيَقُولُ لِعَبْدِي عَلَيَّ إِنْ تَوَفَّيْتُهُ أَنْ أُدْخِلَهُ الْجَنَّةَ وَإِنْ أَنَا شَفَيْتُهُ أَنْ أُبْدِلَ لَهُ لَحْمًا خَيْرًا مِنْ لَحْمِهِ وَدَمًا خَيْرًا مِنْ دَمِهِ وَأَنْ أُكَفِّرَ عَنْهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِ

From Ata ibn Yasar that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said, ‘When the slave is ill, Allah sends two angels to him.’ He said, ‘They look at what he says to his visitors. If he praises Allah and lauds Him, when they come to him, they take that up to Allah, the Mighty, the Majestic, and He knows best, and He says, “If I make my slave die, I will make him enter the Garden. If I heal him, I will replace his flesh with better flesh and his blood with better blood and I will efface his evil actions.”’

Lessons:

  1. It is the responsibility of those in good health to visit those who have fallen ill.
  2. When an ill person is visited upon, he should praise Allah, not complain of his illness.
  3. Visitors should pray for the ill, as well as give words of encouragement.
  4. If an ill person is patient, thankful and praises Allah during his sickness, if Allah wills him to die, Allah will place him in Paradise. If Allah wills him to be cured, Allah will replace his blood with better blood, flesh with better flesh and forgive his sins.
