Where should one look in Janaazah Salaah?


  1. Where should the gaze/sight be placed when praying Janaazah salah?
  2. Why is there no ruku or sajdah in Janaazah salah?



1. One should lower the gaze since khushoo` is a requirement of salaah and du`aa. However, there is no clear text that we have come across.

2. This salaah is a du`aa.

And Allah Ta`ala knows best.
