Can janazah be performed at anytime?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Assalaamu Alaikum,

Can a Janaza be performed at anything time of the day or night e.g. 2 am?

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

A: Yes, it can be performed at any time during the day or night besides the Makrooh times for salaah during (the day). It is Makrooh Tahreemi to perform salaah at three timings:

  1. When the sun is rising 2. When it is setting 3. When the sun is in its meridian.

It will be Makrooh Tahreemi (detested to a great extent) to perform salah of Janaza at these timings. Besides these timings, it can be performed at all other times during the day or night.
