Q: Every year, I take my wife and children to visit my aunt who is also my mother-in-law. However, my cousin suffers from tuberculosis. I offered to accompany him to the Tuberculosis Hospital in
to be treated there until he recovers, but he refused. I tried hard to convince him, but it was of no use. He lives with my aunt in
in the mountains where he works as a shepherd. This year, I did not visit them, as I feared that my children could catch the disease. Please advise whether I am sinful. May Allah reward you and grant you long life.
If the situation is as you mentioned, there will be no blame on you for not visiting them due to that reason, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated,
A sick person should not visit a healthy person.
Muslim. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
