Good Words to be Uttered before a dying Person and his Family




Hadith 920


Umm Salamah radiyallah anha: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"When you visit a sick or a dying person, you should utter good words because the angels say `Amin' at what you say.''

She added: When Abu Salamah radiyallahu anhu died, I came to the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa and said: "O Messenger of Allah, Abu Salamah has died.'' He Sallalahu aleihi wa directed me to supplicate thus:

"Allahummaghfir li wa lahu, wa a`qibni minhu `uqba hasanatan [O Allah, forgive me and him, and bestow upon me a better future (give me a better substitute)].''

So I supplicated as he directed, and Allah gave me a man who was better for me than Abu Salamah radiyallahu anhu (i.e., the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu aleihi wa). (The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa married Umm Salamah afterwards.) [Muslim].


Commentary: In order to fill the vacuum of the dead person, the family members should pray to Allah to grant them a better substitute as He is Omnipotent and nothing is impossible to Him.

Hadith 921


Umm Salamah radiyallah anha reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa saying,

"When a person suffers from a calamity and utters: `Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji`un. Allahumma ujurni fi musibati, wakhluf li khairan minha (We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return. O Allah! Compensate me in my affliction, recompense my loss and give me something better in exchange for it), then Allah surely compensates him with reward and better substitute.''

Umm Salamah radiyallah anha said: When Abu Salamah radiyallahu anhu died, I repeated the same supplication as the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa had
commanded me (to do). So Allah bestowed upon me a better substitute than him (I was married to Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa). [Muslim].


Commentary: The better substitute which fell to Umm Salamah radiyallah anha as her lot, was her marriage with the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa after the death of her husband Abu Salamah radiyallahu anhu . She got the reward in her earthly life. If somebody remains deprived of it in the world, he is sure to have it in the life to come. However, this depends on the Will of Allah, for being the Creator, He has the best knowledge of what is appropriate and good for us.

Hadith 922


Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"When a man's child dies, Allah, the Exalted, asks His angels, `Have you taken out the life of the child of My slave?' and they reply in the affirmative. He azzawajal then asks, `Have you taken the fruit of his heart?' and they reply in the affirmative. Thereupon He asks, `What did my slave say?' They say: `He praised You and said: Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un (We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return).' Allah says: `Build a house for my slave in Jannah and name it Baitul-Hamd (the House of Praise).''' [At-Tirmidhi].


Commentary:
The death of a child is distressing to parents. But it will be a matter of great excellence on their part if they are patient.

Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said:

Hadith 924


Usamah bin Zaid (Radhi Allahu Huma) reported: A daughter of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa sent a message to him that her son was at his last breath, and requested him to come to her. The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa sent back the informer saying:

"To Allah belongs what He takes and what He gives, and everything has a limited period (in this world). So ask her to endure patiently, and expect the reward of Allah.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary:
This Hadith exhorts us to keep self-composure at a moment of tribulation. The Prophet's daughter mentioned in this Hadith is Zainab radiyallah anha. See the Commentary on Hadith No. 29. Chapter 2
