Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajiun

Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajiun
Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiun

This is the phrase that we recite when a person is struck by calamity in life,[2][3] and is usually recited upon hearing the news of someone’s death.[3] This can also be recited in any situation involving risk of any sort. The phrase is commonly translated as “Verily we belong to Allah, and to Allah we return.”

Abu Musa al-Ashari reported that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, “When a son of a servant of Allah dies, Allah Says to the angels, ‘Have you taken the son of My servant?’ They say, ‘Yes.’ Then Allah Says, ‘Have you taken the fruit of his heart?’ They say, ‘Yes.’ Allah Says, “What has My servant said?’ They say, ‘He has praised You and said, To Allah we belong and to Him is our return’. Then Allah Says, ‘Build a house for My servant in Paradise and call it the house of praise.’ From Tirmidhi, Musnad Ahmad and ibn Habban[3]
