How is your sister?

My sister was ill when the Imam was bedridden in hospital. In that state of unconsciousness and passing out, whenever he opened his eyes and saw one of us, he would enquire about her meaning that whenever he would open his eyes he would simply ask: “How is your sister? Is she fine?” This case in point alone is sufficient for us to understand to what extent the Imam gave importance to emotional and kinship issues.
