Aminah Assilmi Passes Away

Assalamu ‘Alaikum,

I have just heard about the death of sister Aminah Assilmi. Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Lillahi Raji’oun. Please recite a Fatiha and Surah Ikhlas 3 times.

I benefited from her talks years ago when I was in college. May Allah (SWT) rest her soul – Ameen!

Was Salam

    Its so sad. May Allah grant her Jannathul Firdouse.
    Why recite surah Fatiha and al-Ikhlas? Its bid’ah. Our prophet (sal) never did such an act. We have to follow only the Qur’an and sunnah.

    1. Dear Laila,

      Jazakum Allahu Khair for your comment. May Allah bless you. I just wanted to note that a thing only becomes Bid’a when you make it a compulsory or necessary part of the deen. Asking someone to recite a Fatiha and surah Ikhlas for the deceased does not constitute Bid’a as reciting the Qur’an and donating that reward to the deceased is allowed insha Allah.

      Was Salam


      1. Assalamu alaykum brother Jashim…i believe sister Laila is correct, but Allah knows best…We can all ask a scholar, in sha Allah, to find out the truth. At there are live lectures followed by question and answer sessions. Assalamu alaykum to all my muslim brothers and sisters. May Allah have mercy on all muslims, dead or alive, ameen.
