11320: Praising of the deceased


What is the ruling on people who say, when someone dies, “O (you) the one in (complete) rest and satisfaction! Come back to your Lord, - well pleased (yourself) and well-pleasing unto Him” [al-Fajr 89:27-28 – interpretation of the meaning]?

Praise be to Allaah. 

This is not permitted if it is said concerning a specific person, because it is testifying that he is one of this category.

 From the fatwas of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen.
