On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: Allah (mighty and sublime be He) says:
“My faithful servant’s reward from Me, if I have taken to Me his best friend from amongst the inhabitants of the world and he has then borne it patiently for My sake, shall be nothing less than Paradise.”
It was related by al-Bukhari. Hadith Qudsi.
Today’s post will be postponed due to the passing of a friend. While I was looking for words to provide solace and give my condolences to the friends and family of the deceased, I came across this beautiful hadith I share with you now. May Allah (swt) grant our loved ones that have left this world His forgiveness, peace in the grave, and the highest level of Jannah. Ameen. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon (to Allah we belong and to him we will return).
