Manners of Visiting the Sick Person

In the Name of Allaah,the Most Merciful,The Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Abdul Muhsin al-Abbaad – may Allaah preserve him – mentions in his book ‘al-Fawaaid al-Muntaqaah min Fathil Baaree wa Kutubinn Ukhraa’ (Selected Benefits from Fathul-Baaree and Various Other Books) pg.352;benefit no.481:

Manners of Visiting the Sick Person

al-Haafidh (Ibn Hajar) said in al-Fath (Fathhul Baaree in Explanation of Saheeh al-Bukhaaree):

“The manners for visiting the sick person total ten things in number,and from those manners are those which are not exclusive to the visitation of the sick:

(1) That he does not face the door when seeking permission to enter.

(2) That he knocks the door lightly.

(3) That he does not make himself ambigious,such as if he were to say “Its me”.

(4) That he does not come at times inappropriate for visitation,such as (visiting) at the time when the sick person takes his medicine.

(5) That he makes his stay short.

(6) That he lowers his gaze.

(7) That he does not ask a lot of questions.

(8) That he shows gentleness and is sincere in his supplication.

(9) That he gives the sick person increased hope and advises him with patience – due to what is contained in that from plentiful reward.

(10)That he warns him against being impatient – due to what is contained in that from sin.”

“The Intention” by Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullah)

In the Name of Allaah,the Most Merciful,The Bestower of Mercy

The intention is complete with three things:

Intention of worship;

Example:You intend (to pray a specific) prayer (whether) Dhuhr or Asr or similar to that.

Intention to worship  for the sake of Allah meaning;

You only pray for the sake of Allah,The Mighty and Majestic,and not for other than him.You do not pray to show-off,or to be spoken of,nor so that you can be praised for your prayer.

Intention to fulfil the command of Allah by way of (that action)meaning;

You remember that you are praying in obedience to the command of your Lord,when He said:

أقم الصلاة: Establish the prayer(1) and

فأقيموا الصلاة: Perform the prayer(2)


أَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِدُلُوكِ الشَّمْسِ إِلَىٰ غَسَقِ اللَّيْلِ وَقُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ إِنَّ قُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ كَانَ مَشْهُودًا

Perform As-Salat (Iqamat as-Salat) from mid-day till the darkness of the night (i.e the Zuhr,Maghrib,and ‘Isha prayers),and recite the Quran in the early dawn (i.e. the morning prayer).Verily,the recitation of the Quran in the early dawn is ever witnessed (attended by the angels in charge of mankind of the day and night).{Soorah Al-Israa verse 78}


فَإِذَا قَضَيْتُمُ الصَّلَاةَ فَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِكُمْ فَإِذَا اطْمَأْنَنتُمْ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ كِتَابًا مَّوْقُوتًا

When you have finished As-Salat (the prayer – congregational),remember Allah standing,sitting down,and lying down on your sides,but when you are free from danger,perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat).Verily,the prayer is enjoined on the believers at fixed hours.{Soorah An Nisaa verse 103}

The Adornment of the World is the Quickest of the Leaves of the Tree to Wither Away & Dry Up:Shaikh Uthaymeen رحمه الله

In the Name of Allaah,the Most Merciful,The Bestower of Mercy

Allah states in the Qur’an:

“And strain not your eyes in longing for the things We have given for enjoyment to various groups of them (polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah),the splendour of the life of this World that We may test them thereby.But the provision  (good reward in the Hereafter) of your Lord is better and more lasting.”{Ta-Ha:131}

Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen رحمه الله mentioned:

“Meaning,do not look to the people of this World and what they have been given of luxury and blessing,from the cars,and clothes and homes,and other than that…all of that is the adornment and splendour of the World,and the end result of adornment is that it withers away,dries up and disappears,and it is the quickest of the leaves of the tree to wither away and dry up.Hence it was termed as “splendour”,and it is (no doubt) a good splendor in its glamor and beauty…

But,this is what the World is like,splendour that withers away in haste…

Advice of Today vs. Advice of Yesterday

Ibn Al-Mubarak said:

“It used to be that if a man saw something from his brother that he disliked he would command him in private or forbid him in private.Thus he would be rewarded for prohibiting him (from evil) and rewarded for covering  him (his flaws).Today if he sees from him that which he dislikes he hates him and exposes him!

It Is From High Moral Character That A Person Knows His [Or Her] True Worth

In the Name of Allaah,the Most Merciful,The Bestower of Mercy

Question to Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh al-Uthaymeen: May Allaah have mercy upon a person who knows his limitations and worth – [Does this (saying) have an (established) source and has it been transmitted in a hadeeth?]

Answer: I do not know of an (established) source for it; however its meaning is correct.(That is) because when a person knows his (limitations and worth),he will be humble in the presence of his Lord.He will worship Allaah and will know that he is not free from being in need of Allaah in the twinkling of an eye.If he knows himself,he will know his status amongst the people and this knowledge will (prevent) him from being haughty towards them – because the haughtiness is from the major sins and looking down on the people  is from the forbidden affairs.That is why when the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) warned against haughtiness (or pride),they (i.e. the people) said:”Everyone of us loves that his clothes and shoes are nice;” so he (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:”Indeed Allaah is beautiful and He loves beauty;haughtiness (or pride) is to reject the truth and look down on the people.”

So when a person knows his (limitations and worth),he will know his rank amongst the people.He will place himself in his (rightful) place;humble himself in the presence of his Lord and in the presence of Allaah’s creation.And whoever humbles himself to Allaah,Allaah will raise him.
