The Rulings Of The Janazah

Allah says in the Qur’an in Sura h Luqman: “Nor does anyone know what it is that he will earn tomorrow: Nor does anyone know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and Allah is acquainted with all things” (Qur’an 31:34). The Muslims should differ from the Kufaar in how we live and the way we die and bury our dead. However, people listen to different non-Islamic traditions and see their ways of doing things, copy them and after time, these innovations becomes the norm. Funerals practices nowadays have been more attune with the culture of the land and people than the sunnah of the Prophet. The Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon him) foretold this phenomenon in the hadith collected by both Imam Al-Bukhari and Imam Muslim.
