Dua after Janaazah Salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q:

1. If a family member performs the janaazah and makes a dua after janaazah, is this a major sin?

2. There is no dua after janaazah, however for the sake of keeping the peace can it be allowed if this will be an issue that will disunite a community?

Bismillaah

A:

1. The Janaazah Salaah is in reality a Dua to Allah Ta’ala for the deceased. Thus, there is no need for an additional Dua after the completion of the Janaazah Salaah. The practice of making an additional Dua after the Janaazah Salaah is not established from any narration from Nabi Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam, the Sahaabah, the Taab’ieen and the entire Ummah. Hence the additional dua after the Janaazah Salaah that is practised in many places is an innovation in Deen  and must be omitted.

2. Effort should be made to educate the masses and teach them the Sunnah in every facet of life.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من أحدث في أمرنا هذا ما ليس فيه فهو رد (صحيح البخاري رقم 2697)

لا يقوم بالدعاء بعد صلاة الجنازة ( الفتاوى البزازية على هامش هندية 4/80)

( ومصلي الجنازة ينوي الصلاة لله تعالى و ) ينوي أيضا ( الدعاء للميت ) لأنه الواجب عليه فيقول أصلي لله داعيا للميت (رد المحتار 1/423)

أي صلاة يكره الدعاء بعدها ؟ أقول هي صلاة الجنازة على رواية . قال الزاهدي في القنية عن أبي بكر بن حامد الدعاء بعد الجنازة مكروه اه (فتاوى اللكنوي ص 505)
