The Holy Prophet [s] said: “O’ Ali! Gabriel wished to become a human being for seven reasons, which are:

Congregational prayer
Companionship with scholars
Establishing peace between two persons
Honoring the orphans
Visiting the sick
Attending a funeral procession
Giving of water to Pilgrims.
Then, be desirous of these things.”[i]
