    Say someone you know or a friend (non Muslim) has a sick loved one or hast lost a loved one...what is the right/polite thing to say to them? And what if they ask for your prayers? What do you say?

    Inna Lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un, To Allaah we belong and to him we return.

    It is da'wah, a statement and a reminder to those listening of the transity nature of this life, not a du'a for the deceased as some people think it is.

    As for praying / making du'a for them, this is forbidden in Islam as the only time we can make du'a for a kafir is to ask Allaah for their guidance, once they are gone then they have lost that chance.

      :salams

      You can say "May Allah grant you sabr." Then, give some consoling words.

      But, of course, you can't make Dua'a for the deceased for their forgiveness.
      Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

      "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
      - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

        "May God ease your journey through the pain. This too shall pass"

        If they ask you to make du'a, just tell "yes I will" or the sentence above. See I don't say "Allah", "Jesus", "Goddess" or any other deities :) It's forbidden in Islam to make du'a for them OK maybe -- but is telling it would be necessary? Just tell them comforting words. Your manner speaks louder insha Allah

        And all the heavens go their way.... And only change is here to stay...

          How about you just say I’m sorry for your loss? How would you feel if you lost someone and somebody came up to you and said may Jesus have mercy on his soul? Keep it neutral, read dua in your mind or on your own. I think praying for forgiveness for someone shows compassion and true love, I am shocked to find out it’s actually forbidden, wow.

            Praying for forgiveness for them to whom though, sister, when the One (SWT) being prayed to has forbidden us to do so...? We may think that (it is compassion and true love) but good and evil is what is deemed by the Creator to be good or evil... It's not for us, the created, to dictate to the Just, All-knowing Creator and Source of knowledge and truth what is what (na'oothubillah).
