Praying for my Mother

Q: How do Isend dua (supplication) for my mother who has died, since I can not read Arabic? Can I get a transliteration?

A: Du'aa is not compulsory in Arabic, nor is there a need for a transliteration. Make Du'aa in your own language for her forgiveness, comfort in the grave, elevated status in the hereafter, etc. The Du'aa that you understand will be more effective, heartfelt and sincere.

Please make an effort to learn Arabic so that you can read Qur'aan, Salaah, etc.

May Allah Ta'aala grant your mother Maghfirat (forgiveness), and a lofty status in the hereafter. Aameen.
