Rasulullah’s visit to the sick

Nav for Ikhlas

Maulana alaluddin Rumi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) relates, in his Mathnavi Sharief, a story of a Sahabi who fell ill. Having heard of the extreme sickness suffered by this Sahabi(), Nabi visited him.

The Sahabi was overoyed with the blessed presence of Rasulullah, and seemed to have been endowed with a new lease to life.

…As a poet aptly says :  “ Seeing the shine on the face of him who arrives; It is understood that the afflicted one is well.”

    *A Companion of the Holy Prophet e.

After having spent some time with the Sahabi, Nabi took leave. However, before departing, Rasulullah (SAW) asked him if he had made any specific dua whilst he had had his good health.

After reflecting a little, the Sahabi replied in the affirmative, saying that he had asked Allah Ta’ala to grant him, in this world, the punishment for his faults and shortcomings, which would be meted out to him in the Aakhirah (Hereafter).

Rasulullah (SAW) expressed his displeasure at this and forbade him from making such a prayer.

…A person making such a request is in reality making a bold claim that he has the power and strength to endure the punishment of Allah Ta’ala. This attitude goes against ‘Abdiyat (servitude).

Rasulullah (SAW)  advised him to rather make dua :  

“O Allah, Our Lord and Sustainer, grant us good in this world and good in the Hereafter, and save us from the torment of the Fire.”

When the Sahabi followed through with the counsel of Nabi , he very quickly regained his health.
