Visiting the Pious Persons, loving them and adoption of their company
Allah, the Exalted, says:
"And (remember) when Musa (Moses) said to his boy-servant: `I will not give up (travelling) until I reach the
junction of the two seas or (until) I spend years and years in travelling''' (up to) "... Musa (Moses) said to him
(Khidr): `May I follow you so that you teach me something of that knowledge (guidance and true path) which
you have been taught (by Allah)?".
"And keep yourself (O Muhammad (PBUH)) patiently with those who call on their Rubb (i.e., your
companions who remember their Rubb with glorification, praising in prayers, and other righteous deeds)
morning and afternoon, seeking His Pleasure.''

Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: After the death of Messenger of Allah (PBUH),
Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) said to `Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) :
"Let us visit Umm
(May Allah be pleased with her) as Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to visit her". As we came to her, she
wept. They (Abu Bakr and `Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) said to her,
"What makes you weep? Do you not
know that what Allah has in store for His Messenger (PBUH) is better than (this worldly life)?
'' She said,
"I weep
not because I am ignorant of the fact that what is in store for Messenger of Allah (PBUH) (in the Hereafter) is better
than this world, but I weep because the Revelation has ceased to come".
This moved both of them to tears and they
began to weep along with her.
Umm Aiman (May Allah be pleased with her) belonged to Ethiopia and was a slave-girl of the
Prophet's father (`Abdullah bin `Abdul-Muttalib). After the death of `Abdullah, Umm Aiman (May Allah be pleased
with him) remained with the Prophet's mother, Aminah, and took great care in his upbringing. Subsequently, the
Prophet (PBUH) set her free and then she was married to Zaid bin Harithah (May Allah be pleased with her) This
Hadith holds justification for weeping over the death of the pious and also shows that it is desirable to visit such
persons to whom one's friends go to pay respect. The incident mentioned in this Hadith also shows the love that the
Companions of the Prophet (PBUH) had for him.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"A man set out to visit a
brother (in Faith) in another town and Allah sent an angel on his way. When the man met the angel, the latter asked
him, "Where do you intend to go?'' He said, "I intend to visit my brother in this town.'' The angel said, "Have you
done any favour to him?'' He said, "No, I have no desire except to visit him because I love him for the sake of Allah,
the Exalted, and Glorious.'' Thereupon the angel said, "I am a messenger to you from Allah (to inform you) that
Allah loves you as you love him (for His sake)"
This Hadith points out the following:
1. The great merit of visiting Muslims for Allah's sake.
