Bearing the loss of an infant child

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am a woman who lost my baby girl when she was only 1 year and 7 months. It is very difficult for me to face her lost. Whenever I think of her I can’t bear that pain but I always think that she will b under Allah’s protection so I feel little happy but I want to know the correct position of her and what amal can I do to benefit her?


A: Such a child is generally blessed with Jannat and it will insist to Allah to take its parents to Jannat. The best amal to have is trust in the wording of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that this child will be your jannat. Work and strive so that you can also join her comfortably.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
