Islamic Solution Center: Hi all readers! We all believe that no parent hates their child. Whatever they will do to make their children happy. On one hand there are sometimes parents who lose their children because their children have died. They will be sad for a long time. Well, in this article I will explain the best words if our child dies that must be spoken by parents.
By the way, do you already know what the best words if our child dies? If you don’t know that yet, then you should read this article to the end!
As always, before I explain the best words if our child dies, I will first quote one hadith that is specifically related to our discussion. The hadith I mean is as follows;
عَنْ أَبِيْ مُوْسَى الأَشْعَرِي رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : إِذَا مَاتَ وَلَدُ الْعَبْدِ قَالَ اللهُ تَعَالَى لِمَلاَئِكَتِهِ : قَبَضْتُمْ وَلَدَ عَبْدِيْ ؟ فَيَقُوْلُوْنَ : نَعَمْ . فَيَقُوْلُ : قَبَضْتُمْ ثَمَرَةَ فُؤَادِهِ ؟ فَيَقُوْلُوْنَ : نَعَمْ . فَيَقُوْلُ : فَمَاذَا قَالَ عَبْدِيْ ؟ فَيَقُوْلُوْنَ : حَمِدَكَ وَاسْتَرْجَعَ . فَيَقُولُ اللهُ تَعَالَى : ابْنُوْا لِعَبْدِيْ بَيْتاً فِيْ الْجَنَّةِ وَسَمُّوْهُ بَيْتَ الْحَمْدِ
From Abu Musa al-Ash’ari radliyallahu ‘anhu, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “If the son of a servant has died, then Allah Taala said to His angels, “Do you have revoked the spirit of my servant’s child?” They said,” Yes.” Allah asked, “Have you pulled his/her baby?” They said,” Yes.” Allah then said, “Then what did My servant say?” They said, “He praised You and say words istirja’ sentence.” Allah Taala then said, “Build a house in Heaven for My servant and give the name of the house Baitul Hamdi!”
Now, do you all know what is the best word if our child dies in the hadith above? There are two best words;
One; Praise to be Allah Taala by saying الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ (all praise belongs to Allah).
Two; Saying istirja’ sentences; إِنَّا لله وإنا إليه راجعون (Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we return).
In the hadith explained, that if there are parents whose children die, then they praise Allah and say the istirja’ sentence, then Allah will give them a very great reward, which is a house in Heaven.
All Readers! That’s a brief explanation of the best words if our children die that must be spoken by parents. May we always be grateful for every condition by saying الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ (all praise belongs to Allah). Amen!
I think that’s enough for this article. May be useful! Amen!
