The New Stuff
Most of us have lost some of our loved ones whom we cared about a lot. These may be family members and friends who left us leaving a hole in our hearts. There isn’t much we can do for them now, except pray for them and remember them. Let us take out a few minutes today and say a little prayer for them:
“O Allaah, forgive our living and our dead, those who are present among us and those who are absent, our young and our old, our males and our females. O Allaah, whoever You keep alive, keep him alive in Islam, and whoever You cause to die, cause him to die with faith. O Allaah, forgive him and have mercy on him, keep him safe and sound, honor the place where he settles and make his entrance wide; wash him with water and snow and hail, and cleanse him of sin as a white garment is cleansed of dirt. O Allaah, give him a house better than his house and a family better than his family. O Allaah, admit him to Paradise and protect him from the torment of the grave and the torment of Hell-fire; make his grave spacious and fill it with light. O Allaah, do not deprive us of the reward and do not cause us to go astray after this.”
And while we are here, let us also say a little prayer for ourselves:
May Allah have mercy on us and make our lives easier. Praying for a happier, healthier and wealthier future for us and our families, Ameen. Have a great day.
