As Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,
No one is dead, nor do i hold any sad news . Here's the explanation of this ayah of the Qur'an.
Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi Raji un
Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.
[Noble Quran 2:156]
The translation of the verses mentioned before and after this ayah is:
certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of
wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sabirin (the
patient). [Noble Quran 2:155]
Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.'' [Noble Quran 2:156]
are those on whom are the Salawat (i.e, who are blessed and will be
forgiven) from their Lord, and (they are those who) receive His mercy,
and it is they who are the guided ones.
[Noble Quran 2:157]
When do we recite this Ayah ?
prevalent perception in our society is that the words Inna Lillahi wa
inna ilayhi Raji un are only recited at the time of someones death.
However, this perception is not correct.
ayah is to be said in cases where a person has suffered any kind of
loss, be it the death of a person (Muslim or non-Muslim) or any living
creature, loss of wealth or property, deterioration of health, etc.
There is one Hadith where the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is quoted to have said "Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi Raji un" when the lamp went off at night.
Ayesha (May Allah be pleased with her) asked him, "O Messenger of Allah. Is this also a calamity?"
Allahs Messenger replied, "Yes.
Whatever hurts or causes difficulty to a Muslim is a calamity and on
bearing it patiently, it carries Allahs promise of reward."
Insha Allah, shall post later, as i exceeded the number of posts in my limited hour.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “All the descendants of Adam are sinners, and the best of sinners are those who repent."
