We will Die
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’oon.
I received very sad news today that the younger sister of my very good friend passed away suddenly at the age of 23.
We ask Allah azza wa jal to let her death on the blessed day of jumu’ah be a sign of her good end. May Allah ta’ala forgive her, have mercy upon her, grant her firmness in the questioning, make her grave a spacious garden, enter her into Firdaws Al ‘Alaa without reckoning or punishment and to make her amongst those believers who are relieved by death. May Allah ta’ala grant her family patience, grant them istiqaamah upon His deen, increase them in taqwa, and may He send His salawaat upon them and make them among those whom He loves and unite them with their daughter and sister in Jannatul Firdaws, Ameen.
I ask anyone who reads this to please make duaa for her and her family, the least we can do for our family to raise our hands to Allah for them. Please also make duaa for all of the Muslims who have passed away. The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said “The prayer of Muslim for his Muslim brother in his absence will be answered. As long as he prays for the good of his brother, there is an angel assigned near his head who says: Ameen, and may the same be for you.“‘ [Muslim] Your duaa for our deceased brothers and sisters WILL be answered.
Please take her death as a reminder…A reminder that we can die in our youth, and only Allah knows of our situation when our souls will be taken. Soon we will be in our graves with only our deeds to accompany us.
