Q: My uncle fell off from his building from the 7th Floor, no body knew how it happened. He was a very kind man namazi, had done umrah only 2 months back, had taken proper care of his family, no regrets from anybody, then why did he die in such a manner. Did the Almighty punish him for any of his mistakes. Actually we don’t know whether he did suicide or it was an accidental death. What if he did suicide, will the Almighty accept him or will he be punished for the same. What should we do for his magfirat. Please help Mufti saheb. All this questions are disturbing me and my family a lot. What should we do for the almighty to forgive him?
A: Don’t worry about this. Make du`aa for him. May Allah Ta`ala forgive him and give him the blessings of the hereafter.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
