Five Rights of a Muslim over another Muslim :

Hazrat Abu Hurairah  (RadhiAllahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “Every Muslim has five rights over another Muslim (i.e., he has to perform five duties for another Muslim):

1. To return the Salaam
2. To visit the sick

Hazrat Ali bin Abi Talib Radiyallahu-Anhu reported: I heard Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam 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.”[At- Tirmidhi]

Did you not realize that if you had visited him you would have found Me with him? O son of Adam, I asked food from you but you did not feed Me.’ He would submit: ‘My Rabb, how could I feed You when You are the Rabb of the worlds?’ He would say: ‘Did you not know that such and such a slave of Mine asked you for food but you did not feed him? Did you not realize that if you had fed him, you would certainly have found (its reward) with Me? O son of Adam, I asked water from you but you did not give it to Me.’ He would say: ‘My Rabb, how could I give You give you water when You are the Rabb of the worlds?’ Thereupon He would say: ‘Such and such a slave of Mine asked you for water to drink but you did not give it to him. Did you not realize that if you had given him to drink you would have found (its reward) with Me?”‘ [Muslim].

Duas to be Recited when Visiting the Sick :

1. Hazrat Aishah Radiyallahu-Anha reported: When a person complained to Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam about an ailment or suffered from a sore or a wound, Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam would touch the ground with his forefinger and then raise it,
(Sufyan bin `Uyainah, the narrator, demonstrated this with his forefinger)
and would recite: `Bismil-lahi, turbatu ardina, bireeqati ba`dina, yushfa bihi saqimuni, bi ‘izni Rabbina’ (With the Name of Allah, the dust of our ground mixed with the saliva of some of us would cure our patient with the permission of our Rabb.’
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

2. Hazrat Aishah Radiyallahu-Anha reported: When Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam visited any ailing member of his family, he would place his right hand on the sick person and would supplicate: “Allahumma Rabban-naas, azhibil-ba’sa, washfi, Antash-Shaafi, la shifa’a illa shifa’uka, shifaan la yughadiru saqaman
[O Allah! the Rabb of mankind! Remove this disease and cure (him or her)! You are the Great Curer. There is no cure but through You, grant such a cure that leaves behind no disease].” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

3. Hazrat Abu ‘Abdillah bin Abul-‘as Radiyallahu-Anhu reported: I complained to Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam about a pain I had in my body. Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Place your hand where you feel pain and say: ‘Bismillah (With the Name of Allah)’ three times; and then repeat seven times: ‘A’uzu bi’izzatillaahi wa qudratihi min sharri ma ajidu wa ‘uhaaziru … (I seek refuge with Allah and His Power from the evil that afflicts me and that which I apprehend).”‘ [Muslim]

4. Hazrat Ibn ‘Abbas Radiyallahu-Anhu reported: Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “He who visits a sick person who is not on the point of death and supplicates seven times: As’alullaahal-‘Azeem Rabbal-‘Arshil-‘Azeem, ayyashfiyaka
(I beseech Allah the Great, the Rabb of the Great Throne, to heal you),
then Allah will certainly heal him from that sickness.” [Abu Dawud and At- Tirmidhi]
