A virtue of visiting a Muslim and visiting a sick Muslim

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is the following narration reliable?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whoever visits his Muslim brother becomes absorbed in the mercy of Allah until he returns and whoever visits his sick brother is absorbed in the mercy of Allah until he returns”

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Safwan ibn ‘Assal (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a very weak chain.

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 7389. Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 2 pg. 472, number: 4487, Al Mughni Fid Du’afa, vol. 1 pg. 583 and Taqribut Tahdhib, number: 3737. Also see Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 365)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
