Consoling the Bereaved

Written by

Islam is the most comprehensive and perfect way of life which has taken every need of man into consideration. It has not only shown the path of peace during a person’s life, but has also shown how to show love and peace after a person’s demise. Hence, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had, through his sublime teachings and by way of his blessed example, showed the Ummah how to console and comfort the bereaved who are in distress.

Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who consoles a person in distress will receive a reward similar to that of the bereaved (i.e. the reward the bereaved receives for adopting sabr in his difficulty).” [1]

In another Hadith, Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “There is no believer who consoles his fellow Muslim brother at the time of some difficulty except that Allah Ta‘ala will clothe him in garments of honour on the Day of Qiyaamah.” [2]
