Visiting the sick – either at home or in hospital – can provide the sick person with a huge psychological boost. For example, a person who lives alone and cannot leave their home for even basic tasks like work and shopping because they are sick would no doubt feel completely isolated and ‘cut off’. We obtain referrals which we follow up by visiting the sick person either at their place of residence or in hospital, leaving behind a care package. It may only take a friendly smile, a chat, some flowers or another gift to cheer up the sick person and to reassure them that they have people who care for them.
Nowadays, when people are sick, we prefer to stay away from them for as long as possible. But according to the words of our prophet Muhammad (SAW) “The one who is ill, is close to Allah (SWT)”. Along with visiting the sick, it enables us to take heed and get closer to god. Some patients don’t have the funds to pay for the surgery needed and what we do is provide as much financial help as possible.
To get closer to god and to provide the sick with as much comfort as possible.
