Being patient over the death of loved ones

Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Allah, the Exalted, says: ‘I have no reward other than Jannah for a believing slave of Mine who remains patient for My sake when I take away his beloved one from among the inhabitants of the world.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari]

Commentary:

Child, wife and parents, etc., are the dearest people to everyone. It is a great sign of Faith to accept their death as the Will of Allah, to bear their loss with patience. Wailing and saying nonsense things show weakness of  Faith. The reward of patience on such tragedies is Jannah while the result of impatience is displeasure of Allah.

And Allah Knows Best!
