Question & Answer
What did prophet mohammad(pbuh) did after the death of a believer?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

When ever any beliver died in the time of prophet Mohammad(pbuh) , he would do following things:

  1. Upon hearing the news of death, would declare the statement: "Inna lillahe wa inna ilayhe rajeoon" (From Allah we have come, and to Him Alone is our return).
  2. Prepare to give their deceased brother/sister in faith an honorable burial and encouraged the believers to participate for the burial prayers and sincerely seek forgiveness for them in their supplications.
  3. He (saws) encouraged the believers to visit the bereaved family of the deceased and encouraged that close friends and neighbors provide food for the immediate family, preferably for a period of three days.
And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
