When A Child Dies

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When a child dies, Allaah says to His angels, ‘You have taken the child of My slave.’ They say, ‘Yes.’ He says,You have taken the apple of his eye.’ They say, ‘Yes.’ He says, ‘What did My slave say?’ They say, ‘He praised yoau and said “In naa lil laa hi wa inna ilay hi raa ji’oon (Verily, to Allaah we belong and to Him we shall return).’ Allaah says, ‘Build for My slave a house in Paradise and call it the house of praise.’" (Al-Tirmidhi)
