My relative recently passed away. He had a disease. As he was passing away he recited some Christan couplets (which are recited at church). Did he pass away as Muslim?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Before that he recited kalimah.


The actual faith at the time of death of any person is only known to Allah
Ta’ala. Since the person recited the kalima, it is hoped he died as a
Muslim. As regards the Christian couplets, we leave it to Allah to judge.

We advise you resort to dua and seek forgiveness for your relative. May
Allah grant us all an honourable death in the state of Ieman. (Aameen)
