    I have learned that a friend's father has died. How do I express to him my condolences? Thank you, in advance, for the help. :)

    Hello

    You can say:
    جعل الله مثواه الجنة

    Ja3ala allaho mathwaho al janna

    meaning may God make heaven his abode.

    Thanks. So, is that better than الله يرحمه ويدخله فسيح جناته?

    Actually I even prefer your sentence :)
    But الله يرحمه is not fus7a, so it's better to say:
    عسى أن يرحمه الله و يدخله فسيح جناته
    And you're welcome :)

    Even it's too late, but knowledge never be late.
    I think to non Arabic speakers it would be much easier to say the simplest word يرحمه الله (Yarhamoho Allah).
