Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

A young Jewish boy who was in the service of the Prophet (ﷺ) fell ill. The Prophet (ﷺ) went to visit him. He sat down by his head and said to him, "Embrace Islam." The little boy looked at his father who was sitting beside him. He said: "Obey Abul-Qasim (i.e., the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ))." So he embraced Islam and the Prophet (ﷺ) stepped out saying, "Praise be to Allah Who has saved him from Hell-fire."

وعن أنس رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ كان غلام يهودي يخدم النبي صلى الله عليه وسلمى الله عليه وسلم الله عليه وسلم فمرض فأتاه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم الله عليه وسلم الله عليه وسلم يعوده، فقعد عند رأسه فقال له‏:‏ ‏

"‏أسلم‏"

‏ فنظر إلي أبيه وهو عنده‏؟‏ فقال‏:‏ أطع أبا القاسم، فأسلم، فخرج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلمى الله عليه وسلم الله عليه وسلم وهو يقول‏:‏ “الحمد لله الذي أنقذه من النار” ‏(‏‏(‏رواه البخاري‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏
