70,000 I want you to try to imagine what 70,000 birds flapping their wings would look like in one place. Or if they form some sort of a pattern in the sky. I want you to think about 70,000 soldiers in one place and what that looks like 70,000 of a posse or an entourage of human beings that were with you moving in a singular direction and you being the focal point of their attention.
Now think about this howdy from the prophets of Allah Han he was on the prophet SAW Selim said that when someone goes to visit their brother or sister for the sake of Allah Subhana, WA Tada, that is ill 70,000 angels accompany them to that visits, all praying and seeking forgiveness upon that person for that person from Allah subhanho wa Taala all the way until the next day. So if you go to visit your brother or sister in the evening, the prophets lie Some said 70,000 angels will accompany you upon that visits, all seeking forgiveness for you, preying upon you throughout that entire time, all the way until the next morning so they don't even stop when you get to the to the visit, that
you're supposed to get to. They stay with you until the next day. And if a person goes up in the morning to visit their sick brother or sister 70,000 angels will accompany you throughout that entire visit all the way until the evening, seeking forgiveness for you and preying upon you think about how incredible that is. And it doesn't stop there. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said what can Allah who sorry, phone fill john, and then that person will have a special garden for them promised in paradise. This is a mind blowing headache because an entire entourage of melodica of angels that are far greater than human beings far greater than the birds flapping their wings,
all seeking forgiveness for you and preying upon you. How do we understand this incredible reward. And what it means Well, for one, you'll find people this day and age that give charity for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you'll find people doing voluntary fasting, you'll find people that break the AMA lid, you'll find people that do various service initiatives like feeding the poor and things of that sort. How rare is it to find people that visit sick people for the sake of Allah Subhana inside and not because they're a chaplain at a hospital, not because they're they've been called as an Imam, or in some pastoral capacity to take care of someone not because it's family. But just as a
form of of seeking reward from Allah as a form of getting closer to Allah on a regular basis saying I'm going to visit sick people for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the first thing is how rare it is to find people that do that communities or groups or organizations that do that as a religious habits separated from all other things. And of course, connect that to what the profit slice on them has already said about a person that just goes to visit their brother or sister for the sake of a loss for the sake of Allah and nothing else visiting a sick person. The second thing of this is that if you remember previously we said that Allah has said that he is with the sick
person, but Allah subhanho wa Taala when speaking about the hungry and the thirsty, Allah mentioned his reward having been with that person, and the number 70,000 is significant in that regard. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that every day, as he had seen on his journey of an assault with Mirage on his ascension every day 70,000 angels visit a day to the map more, which is right above the Kaaba, the frequently visited home, and they make the life around that and they never return 70,000 enter every single day as they visit the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Or they visit the equivalent of the house of a loss of power inside the camera that exists for us in the
form of a debate to demand more. And so some of the scholars connected to that it's, it's because the sick person has such a special position with Allah subhana wa tada in those moments, so much so that it's like Allah subhanaw taala is with them. The reward is so incredible that 70,000 assigned angels would come to accompany you on that visit because of how special it actually is. And, you know, if you add that, to the reward of someone who fasts, you add that to someone who's fasting in the month of Ramadan, you add that to someone who's giving charity and the reward of charity, you add that to just the reward of checking up on someone for the sake of a loss of time, particularly
when someone needs it most when they're feeling ill. And you think about how incredible that reward is. And there's something else that's special about this, which is kind of a hottie funfilled agenda that they have a special garden agenda. If you remember previously, Allah has promised that person who is ill, that if Allah subhana wa tada takes them
If they pass away as a result of that illness, they have a special garden in general. And so just like when you make dua for your brother and sister the angel says, mean well, it could be misery he mean and for you as well. When you go and visit your brother and sister and you make do out for them, and you fulfill that obligation, you're getting the same reward as they are getting in sha Allah to Allah, which is a garden and paradise the forgiveness for sins and the angels that are preying upon you and and seeking forgiveness for you from the Lord of the worlds at that time.
