Visiting the Sick a Quality that Earns one Jannah

Rosesعَن أبي هُرَيرَة رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَليهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَن أَصْبَحَ مِنكُم اليَومَ صَائِمًا قَالَ أَبُو بَكرٍ أَنَا قَالَ فَمَن تَبِعَ مِنكُم اليَومَ جَنَازَةً قاَلَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ أنا قَالَ فَمَن أَطعَمَ مِنكُم اليَومَ مِسكِينًا قَال أبُو بَكرٍ انا قَالَ فَمَن عَادَ مِنكُم اليومَ مَرِيضًا قال أبو بَكر أنا فَقَال رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَليهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَا اجْتَمَعْنَ فِي امْرِئٍ إلَّا دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ (مسلم 2/274)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) narrates that once Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) enquired from the Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum): “Who amongst you is fasting today?” Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu) replied: “I am fasting today.” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then enquired: “Who amongst you had visited the sick today?” Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu) replied: “I had visited a sick person today.” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) further enquired: “Which of you had participated in a Janaazah today?” Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu) replied: “I had participated in a Janaazah today.” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then asked, “Which of you has fed a poor person today?” Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiallahu Anhu) replied:  “I have fed a poor person today.”

Thereafter, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The one who possesses all these qualities will definitely enter Jannah.”

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
