Q: What are the rules for forming the saffs for Janaazah Salah?


A: There are no specific rules. If the musallees are very few in number then try and make them into three saffs. For example, if there are 9 musallees, then 4 in the first row, 3 in the second and 2 in the last row.

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