When someone dies, a lot of people send condolence messages to the family and relatives of the deceased by saying ‘RIP’ or ‘Rest in Peace’. It is very commonly-used expression now, as people post on social media updates also.
But if you are looking to know what exactly its meaning is in Punjabi, or what would be the full form of RIP in Punjabi, this is how you can get it:
RIP–Rest in Peace (ਆਤਮਾ ਨੂੰ ਸ਼ਾਂਤੀ ਮਿਲੇ)
Though there is no mention of the soul in the abbreviation, yet we understand that when we condole, we are talking about the departed soul only.
So, in simplicity, we are asking for peace for the soul that has left the body of that person.
