{الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُم مُّصِيبَةٌ قَالُواْ إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ }البقرة 156

Indeed, to Allah we belong, and to Him we shall all return.

May Allah have mercy on your deceased and may He elevated their rank to the firdaus insha’Allah. May Allah give you patience and hold your heart steadfast during these difficult times.  We are here to make the janazah process as smooth as possible for you in your time of need and distress.
