On Looking At the Afflicted

Muhammad b. Sinan al-Sinani from Ja’far b. Muhammad, peace be upon him, from his father, who said: ‘The Messenger of Allah, blessings on him, said: “Do not stare at the afflicted (ahl al-bala’) and those with leprosy, for that grieves them.”’

From Abu ‘Abd Allah al-Sadiq, peace be upon him, from his fathers, who said: ‘The Messenger of Allah, blessings and peace be upon him, said: “Do not look much at the afflicted and do not visit them. When, you pass by them, quicken the pace so that what has afflicted them may not befall you.”’
