visiting the sick, whether he was muslim or non-muslim: the prophet, may allah exalt his mention, was concerned about his companions and would make sure that they were well. if he was told about a companion who was sick, he would rush to visit him with the companions that were present with him. he wouldn't only visit the muslims who were sick; rather, he would visit even non-muslims. anas b. malik, with whom allah is pleased, said:

'a jewish boy would serve the prophet, may allah exalt his mention, and he fell sick, so the prophet , may allah exalt his mention, said: 'let us go and visit him.' they went to visit him, and found his father sitting by his head, and the messenger of allah , may allah exalt his mention, said: 'proclaim that there is no true god worthy of being worshipped except allah alone' and i will intercede on your behalf on account of it on the day of resurrection.' the boy looked at his father, and the father said: 'obey abul-qasim!' so the boy uttered: 'there is no true god worthy of being worshipped except allah alone, and muhammad , may allah exalt his mention, is the last messenger.' the messenger of allah, may allah exalt his mention, said: 'all praise is due to allah, who saved him from the fire of hell.'  (ibn hibban #2960)
