What to say to console someone in Islam

Is it allowed to send condolences to the family of the dead person

It should be known that the condolence of a Muslim to his Muslim brother is legitimate, and one of the rights of the brotherhood of Muslims; Because it contains consolation, reparation for thoughts, an exhortation to the truth, and an exhortation to patience.
And it is established in the Sunnah, as the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, consoled his companions, and the companions consoled each other, and so did the followers and the followers of the followers, and the majority of scholars see its legitimacy without disagreement.

On the authority of Abdullah bin Masoud, he said: The Messenger of God – may God’s prayers and peace be upon him – said: (Whoever condolence an affected person will have the same reward as his).
