وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ
Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raji'un. Surely we belong to Allah and to
Him shall we return, (Al_Quraan_002.156).
When someone comes in this world,
people welcome him/her with greetings and pray for his/her good health
and emaan. If Allah wills, then he/she slowly grows up and reaches
certain age and performs his/her duty and then no one knows when his/her
time comes to go back. Yes, it is necessary to try our best to save
one's life. Even though, either at early age or at later age one
eventually has to go, even we try all our best to keep him/her with us
by applying all the advanced technology. Tears are left behind for the
family & friends. It is hard to bear the sadness but there is
choice. We all are having our test in this world, someone with
sickness, others with good health or having tears since their love one
passed away. It is hard to find words to explain well.
Please pray for all who have
passed away. May Allah forgive him/her and give Jannat-al-Firdous, AMEEN.
Please pray for all who are sick for his/her good health and emaan, AMEEN.
It is advised to bury
person as quickly as possible in a local place where the person passed
away, preferably within 12 hours if possible. Sending the body abroad
may create many issues like autopsy or postmortem, taken out stomach
and put chemical to preserve etc. for reducing the risk of spreading
No need to wait for
peoples living far away to join the Janazah Salaat unless they can come
in few hours to join it.
Please pray for all who
have tears in their eyes, since their love one passed away. May Allah
give them Saber, AMEEN.
Please help those who
are in distress and also pray for them. May Allah help them to come out
of distress, AMEEN.
to Limit the Burden:
رَبَّنَا لاَ تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن
نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا رَبَّنَا وَلاَ تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا
حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا رَبَّنَا وَلاَ تُحَمِّلْنَا
طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَآ أَنتَ
فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ
Our Lord! Put not on us
greater than we have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us
Forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Maula (Patron, Supporter and
Protector, etc.) and give us victory over the disbelieving people,
to Cure from Diseases:
رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ
وَأَنتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ
O' my Lord! Adversity
has befallen me, and, of all the merciful ones, You are the Most
لَّا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنتَ
سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ
None has the right to be
but You (O Allah), Glorified (and Exalted) are You. Truly, I have been
of the wrong-doers, (Al_Quraan_021.087).
رَّبِّ اغْفِرْ وَارْحَمْ وَأَنتَ
My Lord! Forgive and
have mercy, for You are the Best of those who show mercy,
Al-Quraan, the Miracle of Miracles and free from contradictions and
