Shaikh Mohammad Kaleem (Allah preserve him) a senior khalifa of Arif billah Dr Abdul Hayy Arifi (Allah have mercy on him) said to a brother who lost his twenty three year old son suddenly,
‘Excessive intentional discussion of the deceased is to be avoided. This is because of the remote possibility of development of a thought questioning the Divine decree. That is, why did this happen?
This will be against the patience required.
Therefore, be careful.
Every time his discussion comes up recite,
أنا لله و أنا اليه راجعون
contemplating the meanings discussed earlier.’
