Visiting the Sick is a Quality that Earns one Jannah

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) narrates that once Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) enquired from the Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum): “Who amongst you is fasting today?”
Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu) replied: “I am fasting today.”

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then enquired: “Who amongst you had visited the sick today?”
Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (Radhiallahu Anhu) replied: “I had visited a sick person today.”

Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) further enquired: “Which of you had participated in a Janaazah today?”
Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (RadhiallahuAnhu) replied: “I had participated in a Janaazah today.”

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then asked, “Which of you has fed a poor person today?”
Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radhiallahu Anhu) replied: “I have fed a poor person today.”

Thereafter, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “The one who possesses all these qualities will definitely enter Jannah.”
