Abang Sharif passed away on Wednesday evening, on 19 July 2017, around Asar. May Allah have Mercy and forgive him and accept his soul and bless him. May he not suffer from torture in the grave. May his grave be a happy place for him. May Allah place him among the righteous Muslims in Jannatul Firdaus. No words can describe the grief of losing Abang Sharif. Allah SWT loves him more.

The above is Surah Al Fatihah from Al Quran.
The deeds (pahala)  of reciting this Surah is offered to the deceased and calms the departed soul.

Doa Istidraj
This supplication can be found in Al Quran, Surah Baqarah Verse 156. It makes us ponder that life on Earth is temporary. Our final home is another place in the next life - an everlasting one.

Surah Yasin is recited upon a person's demise and fills the void. It reminds us of our own impending death.
