“The eyes surely tear,
and the heart is surely in pain,
but (with my tongue) I will only say that which is pleasing to Allah,
and we are indeed sad at being separated from you, O Ibrahim.”
— Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), upon losing his child Ibrahim at 2 years old.
Almighty Lord Allah (Subhanahu Ta ‘ala – exalted is He) says in the Quran:
“Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things. Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving;” [Surah Al-Mulk, 67:1-2]
