The loss of a loved one is a time when a person may be overwhelmed with grief, and many customs surrounding bereavement reflect the depth of the feeling of loss. Wailing, eulogizing (i.e. praising the deceased excessively) and tearing ones garments are all customs which were well known at the time of Jâhiliyyah, and are still common among some Muslims.

Dua is intrinsically related to qadr; in fact, it is a part of ones qadr.
