What is the reference for this du’a?
When you miss the deceased read:
اللهم اني اشتقت الي روح لن تعود فاجعلها من اهل الفردوس
I have not come across this narration in any Hadith source, primary nor secondary.
However, the meaning is correct and could be recited on condition that a person does not regard it to be a Sunnah du’a.
O Allah! I am missing a soul that will never return, so make it from the people of [Jannatul] Firdaws.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
