* This Hadith is a clear-cut proof refuting pantheism for it is clear that this Hadith differentiates between the Creator
and the creature in terms of feeding, giving water to drink, visiting, etc.
* This Hadith confirms the speech as Divine attribute.
* That Allah rewards His slaves for their good deeds, and never wrongs a thing.
* The duty of looking after the Muslims and their interests seeking the pleasure of Allah.
* The duty of visiting the sick.
* The duty of offering food for the hungry needy Muslims.

Abu Musa (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Visit the sick,
feed the hungry, and (arrange for the) release of the captive.''
Islam calls upon its followers to co-operate with one another in good things. Like the previous
Ahadith, this Hadith too, should be viewed in the same context. Herein, believers are enjoined to endeavour for the
liberation of a fellow-Muslim who becomes a prisoner of war or is taken captive by disbelievers in any way. This
instruction of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) is also meant for the help of that person who is involved in a false
case or is undergoing jail term on this count. Similarly, it is the duty of the community to extend help and co-
operation to a Muslim suffering a financial difficulty so that he becomes self-sufficient.

Thauban (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"He who visits his brother in
Faith, will remain engaged in picking the fresh fruits from the garden of Jannah till he returns.''

`Ali bin Abu Talib (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying,
"When a Muslim visits a sick Muslim at dawn, seventy thousand angels keep on praying for him till dusk. If he
visits him in the evening, seventy thousand angels keep on praying for him till the morning; and he will have (his
share of) reaped fruits in Jannah.''
Both, this Hadith and the preceding one, lay stress on the virtue of visiting a sick person so as to
obtain the Divine reward. The Hadith mentions
to mean at all times, and not necessarily at
those particular times.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A young Jewish boy who was in the service of the Prophet
(PBUH) fell ill. The Prophet (PBUH) went to visit him. He sat down by his head and said to him,
"Embrace Islam.''
The little boy looked at his father who was sitting beside him. He said: "Obey Abul-Qasim (i.e., the Messenger of
Allah (PBUH)).'' So he embraced Islam and the Prophet ü stepped out saying,
"Praise be to Allah Who has saved
him from Hell-fire.''
