Fearing certain action to be bad omen


Assalaamu alaykum. Recently, one of my distant relatives died. When another relative went to see the dead body, he accidentally hit his foot against the bed in which the dead body was kept. Is this a bad thing/omen? Are there any ways for us to rectify this mistake? We are really scared. Please help with your kind advice. Thank you.


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

As long as this action was accidental (not intentional), it has no effects, and nothing at all needs to be done. One should not pay attention to such matters and assume that they have a bad meaning. Please refer to fatwa 29745.

Allah knows best.
