Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the sequence of rituals in an Islamic funeral service? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salaam `Alaykum. My father buried my eight-month-old sister without performing funeral prayer for her. Now, after many years, is it permissible to offer the funeral prayer for her while she is buried in the grave? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `Alaykum. What is the Islamic ruling concerning Muslim women praying Funeral Prayer?
Dear sheikh, as-salamu `alaykum. I have come to know that if a person dies in a given place, then we have to bury him in the country where he dies whether that is his homeland or not. We can't take him away to another place.My question is: If a person from Pakistan dies in London, then what can we do with his dead body, i.e., should we bury him in London or in Pakistan?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. A funeral prayer was just about to be offered, when it came time for Al-`Asr prayer. In fact, the janazah was carried into the mosque before the second call to prayer so, people were not sure which prayer to offer first: Al-`Asr prayer or the Funeral prayer. Finally, we offered Al-`Asr prayer first, but some people criticized us for doing that. I would like you to give us the Shar`i ruling on this matter. Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. While offering a funeral prayer behind an Imam, he finished the prayer by saying ‘as-Salamu 'alaykum’ after the third takbirah (i.e., saying ‘Allah Akbar’), and when he realized the mistake, he uttered the fourth and then said ‘as-Salamu 'alaykum’ again without offering a prostration for forgetfulness. Is this prayer correct and valid? Jazakum Allah khayran.
If a Muslim commits suicide, can his fellow Muslims conduct a Funeral Prayer for him/her or attend such a Prayer? Please, provide your answer with evidence.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I attended a session conducted by one of the sisters who was referred to as a woman scholar of Islam. While talking about the death of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) she said there was no Funeral Prayer said for him. I want to know if this statement is correct or not? If there was indeed a Funeral Prayer, did women participate in it? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Is it true that the funeral expenses should be paid from the wealth left behind by the deceased? If yes, what are the limits that should be considered while preparing the funeral? Also, if any of the heirs offered to pay for the funeral from his own money, does he have the right to be reimbursed? Jazakum Allah khayran.
