Etiquettes of Visiting the Sick
Visiting the sick is called ‘Iyaadah in Arabic (from a root word meaning return) because people come back time after time.
Some of the scholars are of the view that it is a confirmed Sunnah (Sunnah mu’akkadah). Shaykh al-Islam (Ibn Taymiyah) favoured the view that it is a communal obligation (fard kifaayah), as stated in al-Ikhtiyaaraat (p. 85) and this is the correct view. It is proven in al-Saheehaayn that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are five duties that the Muslim owes to his brother Muslim,” one of which is visiting the sick. According to another version: “The rights of one Muslim over another are…” Al-Bukhaari said: Chapter on the obligation of visiting the sick, and he narrated the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Feed the hungry, visit the sick and free the captives.” End quote.
There are many ahadith which speak of its virtue, such as the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “When the Muslim visits his (sick) Muslim brother, he is harvesting the fruits of Paradise until he returns.” Narrated by Muslim, 2568
Imam Ahmad narrated that Jaabir (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever visits a sick person is plunging into mercy until he sits down, and when he sits down he is submerged in it.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 2504.
Al-Tirmidhi (969) narrated that ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “There is no Muslim who visits a (sick) Muslim early in the morning but seventy thousand angels send blessings upon him until evening comes, and if he visits him in the evening, seventy thousand angels send blessings upon him until morning comes, and he will have a garden in Paradise.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.
Visiting the sick does not involve only those whom you know, rather it is prescribed for those whom you know and those whom you do not know. al-Nawawi in Sharh Muslim.

"Once the Prophet was asked:'Tell us, which action is dearest to Allah?' He answered:'To say your prayer at its proper time.' " (Ibn Masad: Bukhari)
This Hadith inspired the creation of Salat for our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters.
Praying at the proper time
Salat computes prayer times based on your location in the world. If your BlackBerry® is equipped with a GPS, Salat will update prayer times automatically as you travel from one location to another. If your BlackBerry® is not equipped with a GPS, you can update your location using the embedded mapping function.
Salat will provide you with the following times:
» Fajr Dawn Prayer
» Shuruq Sunrise - end of Fajr Prayer
» Dhuhr (Noon Prayer)
» Asr Mid-afternoon Prayer
» Maghrib Sunset Prayer
» Isha Nightfall Prayer
Praying in the right direction
Salat also comes with a Qiblah feature that indicates the direction to the Kabba in Mecca from wherever you are in the world. Simply locate your position on the map, and the Qiblah direction will be indicated with an arrow.
Designed for BlackBerry®
Salat is designed to work with any BlackBerry® device with OS 4.5 or higher. Salat has been optimized for the following Blackberry® devices:
