Prohibition of a sick person visiting a healthy one

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 Al-Ta'if 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 Tihamah `Asir 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.

A: 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. Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
