Prophet Muhammad,may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, said: "Whoever relieves a believer of some distress in this world, Allah will relieve him of some of his suffering on the Day of Judgment. Whoever makes things easier for one who is suffering hardships, Allah will make things easier for him in this world and in the hereafter."

In another narration, Prophet Muhammad, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, commanded us to show mercy to distressed people. "Show mercy so that you may be shown mercy." And he also said, "Those who are merciful will be shown mercy by the Most Merciful. Have mercy on those who are on earth, and the One Who is in the heavens will show mercy on you."
