Chapter 57: Condolence
1 du'as
'إن لله ما أخذ وله ما أعطى . وكل شيء عنده بأجل مُسمى ... فلتصبر ولتحتسب ' وإن قال : 'أعظم الله أجرك وأحسن عزاءك وغفر لميتك' فحسن
Inna lillāhi mā akhadh. wa lahu mā a`tā. wa kullu shay'in `indahu bi ajalin musammā... faltaṣbir wa ‘l-taḥtasib.
[Also good to say:]
A`ẓamallāhu ajrak. wa 'aḥsana `azā'ak. wa ghafara limayyitik.
Surely, Allah takes what is His, and what He gives is His, and to all things He has appointed a time... so have patience and be rewarded.1 May Allah magnify your reward, and make perfect your bereavement, and forgive your departed.2
