The house of praise


Our master AbuMusa al-Ash’ari (Allah be pleased with him) narrates,

Allah’s Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said,

When a man’s child dies,

Allah Most High asks His angels whether they have taken His servant’s child and they reply that they have.

He then asks whether they have taken the fruit of his heart, and when they reply that they have, He asks what His servant said.

On their replying that he praised Allah and said,

“We belong to Allah and to Him do we return,”

Allah says, “Build a house in Paradise for my servant and call it the house of praise.”

Ahmad and Tirmidhi (#1736)
