Visiting the Sick in Islam

God’s Messenger of Mercy, Muhammad, also said:

“A visitor walking to visit a sick person will be wading in the mercy of God. When the visitor sits with the sick one, they will be immersed in mercy until his or her return.”

God Himself explained the importance of and greatness of the reward of visiting the sick. The Prophet said:

“On the Day of Resurrection, God the Mighty and Majestic will say: ‘O child of Adam! I became sick and you did not visit me!’ The person will say, ‘O Lord, how can I visit you and you are the Lord of all that Exists!’ God will say, ‘Did you not know that my slave ‘so and so’ became sick, and you did not visit him? Did you not know that if you visited him, you would have found me with him?’” (Saheeh Muslim)

Our Goal

Our aim is to develop a network of volunteers, both male and female, who are willing to visit and provide chaplaincy/education services to those Muslims who are sick in hospitals on a regular basis. We hope to have two or more representatives for each hospital in the United States. We expect retired Muslims to take the lead.
