It is narrated in Bihar al-Anwar: When the Prophet (SAWA) missed the company of any of his brothers for three days, he would ask about him. If he was absent, he would pray for him; and if he was in town, he would visit him; and if he was ill, he would go to see him.

Bihar al-Anwar, v. 16, p. 233, no. 35; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 162

“One who fulfils a need of a brother is like one who has begun with the desire of Allah. The Almighty Allah will fulfill his hundred desires, one of which is Paradise. One who solves the difficulty of a brother Allah will solve his difficulties on the Day of Judgment whatever be their number. One who helps a brother against an unjust man the Almighty Allah will save him from stumbling so that he can pass through the Sirat Bridge. One who tries to fulfill the desire of a brother and successfully does so is like a person who has pleased the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.). One who satisfies the thirst of a person, Allah will offer him the drink of Makhtum (sealed). One who feeds a hungry person, Allah will give him fruits of Paradise to eat. If someone dresses a bare person Allah will grant him dresses made of satin and silk. One who dresses someone else, the former will remain in Allah’s protection till that person is wearing the dress and even if a single thread is remaining. If someone protects the honor of a person Allah will appoint Wildan-e-Mukhalladin (boys who remain in Paradise forever) to serve him. If someone offers his mount to a person, Allah will make him ride a camel of Paradise and the angels will feel proud of him. One who gives shroud to a believing brother he is like a baby just born. If a person marries someone off to a loving and caring woman Allah will give him a beautiful face in grave, which will make his relatives happy. One who visits an ailing brother angels surround him and pray for him till he returns. Then angels tell him, ‘You have become pure. Congratulations for getting a pure Paradise’. By Allah, I consider fulfilling the wish of a person better than fasting for those two consecutive months while spending two sacred months in Etekaf.”
Imām `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 192/193

Ishaq bin Ammar says that many believers came to meet him while he was in Kufa. He didn’t like fame so he told his servant to tell everyone that he is not home. He went for Hajj the same year and proceeded to meet Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.). His behavior wasn’t normal and he was annoyed. He asked the Imam, “May I be sacrificed for you, why are you behaving so sternly?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Because you behave with believers rudely.” He explained, “I feared fame, otherwise Allah knows how much love I have for them.” Imam (a.s.) said, “O Ishaq! Don’t show remorse on your face while meeting a believer. If a believer congratulates another believer, the Almighty Allah writes success for him till the Day of Judgment. If a believer shakes hands with another believer the Almighty Allah reveals one hundred blessings between their fingers, out of which ninety-nine are for one who loves his friends more. The Almighty Allah pays attention to him because of his love. When believers embrace each other, they are immersed in the Mercy of Allah and when they stand near each other for the sake of Allah, they are told, ‘Allah has forgiven you. Your deeds will have a new beginning’. When they inquire about each other, angels tell each other, ‘Keep away from them for they have their own secrets, which even Allah has kept hidden’.” Ishaq asked, “Why don’t they note down our conversation while Allah says, ‘A man does not utter a word except that he is being watched out’?” He says: The son of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) sighed and he cried so much that his beard got wet with tears. He said, “O Ishaq! The Almighty Allah orders the angels to stay away from believers while they are conversing so that they do not note down the conversation nor do they know about it. Their conversation is known to only Allah, the Guardian of secrets. O Ishaq! Fear Allah as if you are seeing Him because even if you cannot see Him, He is definitely looking at you. If you think that He is not seeing you, you will become an infidel. If you have a belief that He is looking you and you hide your sins from other creatures and reveal them in front of Allah you have really underestimated His Sight.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 193/194

“One who helps an oppressed believer its reward is better than that of fasting for a month and performing Etekaf in Masjidul Haraam. One who is capable of helping a Muslim and helps him, the Almighty Allah will help him in the world and the hereafter. If a believer is being backbited and a person capable of helping him remains silent and does not defend him, the Almighty Allah will make him deprived in the world and the hereafter.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 194/195

“One who solves the problem of a believer, Allah will keep the difficulties of hereafter away from him and take him out of grave with peace of heart. One who feeds a hungry Muslim will get the fruits of Paradise to eat. One who offers water to a thirsty will get the drink of Makhtum.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 196

“One who keeps a believer happy, the Almighty Allah will make that person happy on the Day of Judgment and he will be told to ask for whatever he wants as a reward of keeping the lovers of Allah happy in the world. Therefore He would give you whatever you desire and Allah would bestow such bounties of Paradise as you have not even imagined.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 196

“One who makes a believing family pleased, the Almighty Allah would make a creature out of those pleasures on the Day of Judgment. It will come to that person whenever he is in some problem. It will help him and say, ‘O lover of Allah! Do not fear’. He will ask, ‘May Allah’s mercy be upon you, who are you? If I would have owned the whole world then too it had no comparison with you’. It will reply, ‘I am the happiness you gave to such and such family’.”
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 196/197

“When Allah resurrects a believer from his grave, He will also resurrect a person of his like, which will walk ahead of him. Whenever the believer will face a difficulty or fear on the Day of Judgment, this look-like will say, ‘Do not be sorrowful or fearful. There are glad-tidings for you from Allah’. It will continuously congratulate him till they reach the presence of Allah. His accounting of deeds will be easy and he will be ordered to enter Paradise and that look-alike will follow him. He will say to that creature, ‘Peace be upon you, for you were there with me in my grave and you are such a nice thing to come out of my grave that you are continuously giving me happiness since the time I saw you. Tell me who are you?’ It will reply, ‘I am the happiness that you gave to a believing brother in the world. Allah created me of that to give you glad-tidings’.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 197

“One who does good to his believing brother is like one who does good to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.).”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 221

“On the day of Judgment, a believer will pass by a person whom he had known in the world. An angel will be appointed to take that person to Hell and he will call out to the believer, ‘Please help me for I had done good to you and fulfilled your desire in the world. Can you repay that good deed of mine today?’ The believer will ask the angels to leave that person. Upon hearing the desire of that believer, Allah will order the angels to obey the believer and leave that person alone.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 224/225

“The excellence of a man near Allah is in loving his brother. Allah has put the love of brothers in his heart. Allah loves him and will grant him full reward on the Day of Judgment.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 238

“One who goes to meet a Muslim brother, the Almighty Allah will call out to him, ‘O one who is going for visiting! You have become pure and your reward is pure Paradise.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 238

“One who is not aware of the status of Allah is not aware of the status of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) also. And one who is not aware of the status of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) is not aware of the status of a believer also. If someone sees a believing brother and shakes hands with him, sins are wiped off from their faces like dry leaves fall off a tree due to wind, till they (the believers) separate from one another.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 241
