“Please forgive any of his transgressions against you in this world, and if he has any debts still outstanding, please approach me personally. We pray that Allah (SWT) will shower His mercy on this man, and grant him the highest level of Paradise – Jannat Ul-Firdaus – and give his family patience in this difficult time.”
