ETHICS TOWARDS ILL PEOPLE


Muslimcreed - As a Muslim, if any of our relatives or other Muslims are sick, we are encouraged to visit them. below we will briefly discuss ethics towards the sick.

Ethics towards people who are sick are as follows:

1. It is recommended for people who believe in Allah, especially for people who are sick, to increase the remembrance of death and prepare for life after death by doing good deeds and repentance.


2. It is recommended again to visit people who are sick, even though people who are sick are our enemies (to attract love and idkholussurur / make the enemy's heart happy so that it becomes a cause to eliminate hostility) or visit people who do not believe or are non-Muslims if not including infidels harobi (infidels who are hostile to Islam) and are neighbors or relatives.


3. And it is recommended that when visiting someone who is sick, it should not be too frequent or too long. It is feared that it will be inconvenient or disturbing to people who are sick, except for relatives or friends who will take care of or care for people who are sick so that people who are sick feel happy and comfortable when accompanied and cared for by that person.


4. If there is hope for the sick person to recover, then it is advisable to pray for the sick person to get well soon. The most important prayer to be read for those who are sick is the following prayer:

أَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ الْعَظِيمَ رَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ أَنْ يَشْفِيَكَ

Because there is a hadith received from Ibn Abbas which means: "Whoever visits a sick person who is not dying then reads a prayer:

أَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ الْعَظِيمَ رَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ أَنْ يَشْفِيَكَ

then Allah will heal him again as before.”

Among the wills of a sick person to his family is to be patient in caring for him while he is sick.
