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.”)
