Numerous texts from the Quran and Sunnah which point to the virtue and great reward of those who are patient and state that Allah will give them reward without measure.

This includes everyone who bears with patience any calamity with which he is tested. Undoubtedly the loss of a child is one of the greatest calamities for the one whom it befalls.

Whoever bears that with patience and accepts the will and decree of Allah will have a great reward by the grace and bounty of Allah.

Allah says in the Quran

“And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As- Saabiroon (the patient).

Who, when afflicted with calamity, say: ‘Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return.’

They are those on whom are the Salawaat (i.e. who are blessed and will be forgiven) from their Lord, and (they are those who) receive His Mercy, and it is they who are the guided ones”

[al-Baqarah 2:155-157] 

There are also many hadiths, including the following:

Al-Tirmidhi (942) narrated that Abu Sinaan said:

Prophet Mohamed (PBUH):

“When a person’s child dies, Allah says to His angels, ‘You have taken the child of My slave.’

They say, ‘Yes.’

He says, ‘You have taken the apple of his eye.’

They say, ‘Yes.’

He says, ‘What did My slave say?’

They say, ‘He praised you and said “Innaa lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon (Verily to Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return).’

Allah says, ‘Build for My slave a house in Paradise and call it the house of praise.’”

(Classed as hasan in Silsilah Saheehah, 1408)

We ask Allah to bless you with patience in the face of your loss, and to compensate you with something better. And Allah knows best.
