Hadith Explanation

Illness of a Mushrik

“A Jewish boy used to serve the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and became ill. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) went to pay him a visit and said to him, ‘Embrace Islam,’ and he did embrace Islam.” [Sahih Bukhari]

A Mushrik is a disbeliever in the Oneness of Allah and a disbeliever in the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam).

When a person is sick, it might be his/her final illness. This last chance of inviting them to Islam should not be wasted. Illness is a vulnerable time when a person naturally feels closer to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). Your caring visit should be used to invite the person to answer the call of their Creator. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) did not lose any opportunity to invite a person to Islam.
