Join him to the righteous believers, place him under the care of Ibrâhîm (Abraham), and protect him by Your mercy from the torment of Hellfire. O Allâh, give him a house better than his house, a family better than his family. O Allâh, forgive our predecessors, and those who preceded us in Faith,” then this is Ok.
