Inna lilla he wa inna elaihe rajioun

As salaamu’alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. All praises and thanks are due to Allah (subhaanahu wa ta’aalaa), and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger (sal-lal-laahu ‘alaihi wa sallam).

الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُم مُّصِيبَةٌ قَالُوا إِنَّا لِلَّـهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
(Who, when disaster strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.”)

O Allah, forgive him and have mercy upon him, excuse him and pardon him, and cleanse him with water, snow, and ice, and purify him of sin as a white robe is purified of filth. O Allah, exchange his home for a better home, and his family for a better family. Admit him in Paradise as his ultimate home, protect him from the punishment of the grave and the torment of the fire. O Allah, grant patience to his family and friends and provide them with strength and strong iman to recover from this difficult loss. Ameen.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family and their loved ones and ask Allah SWT to grant them patience.
