Uthaimeen on Visiting the Sick
February 3, 2013 § Leave a comment
Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “It is fitting that someone who visits an ill person reminds him of repentance and of the obligation upon him of having a will and that he should fill his time with Allaah’s remembrance, the Mighty and Majestic, because a person who is ill is in need of such things, and if he is at death’s door and the person who is by him is certain that death is upon him, then it is right that he should prompt him to say, ‘Laa ilaaha illallaah,’ as the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم ordered.”
