This straightforward Muslim continues to speak the truth until his truthfulness lands him in Jannah.
May He forgive our sins and guide us.
My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
We should make and ask Allah to bless us with happiness, success and whatever is good.
It is the same for you and your friend in this situation.
Are we doing enough to earn the mercy and pleasure of Allah? We are overpowered by feelings of mourning and deprivation, and we fall into a state of depression and grief.
