People turned out in their thousands yesterday for the funeral of eight of the nine shaheed pro-Palestinian activists murdered when Israeli commandos stormed the freedom flotilla attempting to bring aid to besieged Gaza.
Considering that today is Friday prayers, I ask that at the very least you remember those that gave their lives to break the chains of misery that the people of Gaza are having to endure.
Remember to offer the Qunoot Du’aa.
Innalillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un
To Allah we belong and truly to Him we shall return
Surah al-Baqarah, 2: 155-156
Allahum-maghfir li (name of person) warfa’daraja-tahu fil mah-dina, wakhlufhu fi ‘aqibihi fil ghaabiriina, waghfir lana wa lahu ya Rabbal Alameena, wafsah lahu fi qabrihi wa nawwair lahi fihi
O Allah! Forgive him and elevate his station among those who are guided. Send him along the path of those who came before, and forgive us and him, O Lord of the Worlds. Enlarge for him his grave and shed light upon him in it
Sahih Muslim; 2:634
Allahhum maghfirlahu warhamhu wa’fu ‘anhu wa ‘afihee wa-akrim nuzuluhu wa was-si’ mudkhalahu, waghsilhu bil maee wath thalji wal bardi, wa naq-qihi minal ‘khataya Kama yunaq- qath thawbul abyadu minad danasi, wa abdilhu daran Khayram min darihi, wa ahlan Khayram min ahlihi wa zawjan khayrum min-zawjihi, wa adkhil hul jan-nata, waqihi fitnatal qabri wa ‘Azaban nar
O Allah! Forgive him and have Mercy on him and give him strength and pardon him. Be generous to him and cause his entrace to be wide and wash him with water and snow and hail. Cleanse him of his transgressions as white cloth is cleansed of stains. Give him an abode better than his home, and a family better than his family and a wife better than his wife. Take him into Paradise and protect him from the punishment of the grave (and of the fire)
Sahih Muslim; 2:663
Allahum maghfir lihayyina, wa mayyitinaa, wa shaahidina, wa ghaa-‘ibina, wa sagheerina, wa kabeerina, wa dhakarrina wa untha. Allahumma man ahyaitahu mina fa ahyihi ‘alal Islami wa man tawaf-faytahu mina fatawaffahu ‘alal imani. Allahumma la tahrima arjahu wa la tudhillana ba’dahu
O Allah! Forgive our living and our dead, those who are with us and those who are absent, our young and our old, our men and our women. O Allah! Whomever you keep alive from us keep him alive on Islam, and whomever you take away from us, take him as a believer. O Allah! Do not leave us bereft of his good and do not send us astray after them.
Ibn Majah 1:480, Ahmad 2:368
