If you don't mind, I just found out that a daughter of a family friend died suddenly. The family practice Islam, which I know nothing about.

Please advise a respectful way to give condolences. We no longer live close to them so it would be something sent.

Thanks.

As you know nothing about Islam, it would be best if you try to express your feelings as a human being would at a time of loss of daughter of another human friend. Perhaps something on the lines of you too feeling the pain and encouraging the family in being patient and bearing the loss will help the family know that you are with them.

You can write..

Dear Mr. ( )
Peace be upon you..

It's Allah the one who gives and the one who takes, so be patient and hopeful in order to be rewarded from Allah.

May Allah have mercy on ( ).
