Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
What is the ruling on travelling to offer condolences and staying with the family of the deceased?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
That depends on the situation of the family of the deceased. If that will be a burden on them, then it is not permissible. But if they would like it, then there is nothing wrong with that. There are no restrictions on this matter.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
