Consoling a person whose property was damaged

Q: Is there any hadith or Quraan verse to console a person whos property was burnt by fire or damaged by water?

Bismillaah

A: In the following verse of the Quraan Allah Ta’ala says that whatever difficulty a believer goes through, whether loss of wealth or loss of life, Allah Ta’ala will reward him abundantly if he exercises patience.

وَلَنَبلُوَنَّكُم بِشَىءٍ مِنَ الخَوفِ وَالجوعِ وَنَقصٍ مِنَ الأَموٰلِ وَالأَنفُسِ وَالثَّمَرٰتِ ۗ وَبَشِّرِ الصّـٰبِرينَ

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