Some Hadith questions pertaing to Janaazah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za


  1. A Hadith of reciting “minha khalaqnakum..” while throwing sand in the qabr is mentioned in mirqat vol 4 pg 189, please tell me how authentic it is?
  2. The Hadith of Abu Hurayrah (Radiyallahu Anhu) mentioned in Muwatta Imam Malik (RA) about the way we hanafis perform janaza salaah (without surah fatihah), has any of the muhadditheen and fuqaha proved its authenticity?

Please give me the references from the books of hadith.



  1. This Hadith has not been authenticated by some Muhadditheen, though practising upon it is permissible.
  2. The proofs of the Hanafi Mazhab are mentioned in I’laaus Sunan vol. 8 pg 257.

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

عن أبي أمامة قال : لما وضعت أم كلثوم بنت رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم في القبر قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم : ” { منها خلقناكم وفيها نعيدكم ومنها نخرجكم تارة أخرى } ” قال : ثم قال : – لا أدري – أو قال : ” بسم الله وفي سبيل الله وعلى ملة رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم ” . أم لا ؟ فلما بنى عليها لحدها طفق يطرح إليهم الحبوب ويقول : ” سدوا خلال اللبن ” . ثم قال : ” أما إن هذا ليس بشيء ولكنه يطيب نفس الحي “
