Janazah – Funeral Prayer


Janazah Namaz is a funeral prayer spoken in Islam for the person who died. This is standard practice for asking Allah to forgive one’s ancestors. Every observant Muslim must pray the Janazah.

In addition, several Islamic texts, including the Hanafi, forbid saying a funeral prayer anywhere other than in front of the people. The purpose of the janazaah namaz is to honor the dead. Intercession is granted when a Muslim brother prays the Janazaah namaz for a brother who has passed away. This signifies that Allah accepts their witness for their brother and considers their deeds sufficient for pardon. In Islam, saying the Janazah prayer after hearing of someone’s death absolves the one who says it from any further duty. A person is still guilty of sin if he learns about a funeral but fails to carry it out.

How should we pray for a Janazah?

There are two primary recitations in Salat-e-Janazah. Which include:

  • Takbeer is said four times.
  • Qiyam that happened during the standing prayer of Salaatul Janazaah.

The Sunnah of the Prayer (Namaz e Janazaah)

  • Dissecting Allah (Durrod, Hamd, and Thana).
  • Prayers to Allah for the Holy Prophet SAW
  • A Prayer for the Dead

Instructions for saying the Janazah prayer.

To complete Janazah Namaz, one must:

  • To begin the Funeral prayer, one must first form an intention (niyyah). “Behind this Imam, I am doing niyyat of Janazah Namaz to Allah, praying for a friend who has passed away.
  • Now, listen to Imam. You will act like the Imam by folding your hands in front of you, saying “bismillah” (which means “I seek refuge with Allah from the evil one, Shaytan”), and then reciting Al-Fatiha.
  • Everybody, and the Imam, must say it slowly. Recite the Durood Ibrahim and Takbirs.
  • Recite certain Duroods, speak “Allahu Akbar,” and then say “Assalamu ‘AlaikumWarahmatullah” as a form of Salam.
