Du'a For Visiting The Sick

Recommended Posts

  • 8 years later...
Q. What is the etiquette of visiting a sick person?
(Question published as received)
A. The etiquette of visiting the sick is based on giving comfort and hope to the sick person. This is the basic principle by which all etiquette may be evaluated. Any act that would bring comfort and give hope to the sick would be encouraged. Any act that would give the opposite effect should be abstained from.
Hence, if the sick person is sleeping, they should not be disturbed unless seeing the visitor would make them happy. A person’s stay should not be so long that would inconvenience the sick person.
Offer words of hope and comfort to the sick person and do not say anything negative in their presence. Learn the Duas for visiting the sick and recite them in the presence of the sick person.
After visiting the sick person, take leave. Do not expect to be entertained at the home of the sick person unless you are sure the hosts would want you to stay.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
