    Salat al-Janazah, also known as the funeral prayer, is a specific prayer performed by Muslims for a deceased person. It is a collective obligation (Fard Kifayah), meaning that it must be performed by some members of the Muslim community, and if enough people do it, the obligation is fulfilled for the entire community. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to perform Salat al-Janazah:

    Step 1: Intention (Niyyah) Begin with a sincere intention in your heart to perform the Salat al-Janazah prayer for the deceased person.

    Step 2: Position Position yourself in a clean place, facing the direction of the Qiblah (the Kaaba in Mecca).

    Step 3: Takbir al-Ihram Raise your hands and say “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the Greatest) to start the prayer. This is known as Takbir al-Ihram.

    Step 4: Recitation of Opening Supplication After Takbir al-Ihram, recite the opening supplication, which is usually:

    Subhanaka Allahumma wa bihamdika wa tabarakasmuka wa ta’ala jadduka wa jalla thana’uka wa la ilaha ghairuka. A’udhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajim. Bismillahi r-rahmani r-rahim.

    Translation: “Glory be to You, O Allah, and praise be to You, and blessed is Your name, and exalted is Your majesty, and there is no god but You. I seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Satan. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.”

    Step 5: Recitation of Surah Al-Fatiha Recite Surah Al-Fatiha (the first chapter of the Quran) silently in your heart.

    Step 6: Recitation of Salat al-Ibrahimiyya After Surah Al-Fatiha, recite the Salat al-Ibrahimiyya (the prayer for blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad) silently in your heart. It is usually recited as: “Allahumma salli ‘ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali Muhammadin, kama sallaita ‘ala Ibrahima wa ‘ala aali Ibrahima, innaka hamidun majeed.”

    Step 7: Du’a for the Deceased After the Salat al-Ibrahimiyya, you may supplicate to Allah for the forgiveness and mercy of the deceased person. You can make any sincere du’a for them at this time.

    Step 8: Salam Conclude the Salat al-Janazah by turning your head to the right and saying “As-salamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah” to end the prayer.

    It’s important to note that Salat al-Janazah is usually performed in a group with an Imam (prayer leader) leading the prayer. The body of the deceased is placed in front of the congregation, and the prayer is performed in the standing position. The number of Takbirs (Allahu Akbar) during the Salat al-Janazah may vary depending on the tradition followed, but it typically includes four Takbirs.

    Additionally, the Salat al-Janazah is a silent prayer, meaning that the recitations and supplications are done silently in your heart, not audibly. It is a respectful and solemn prayer offered for the deceased, asking Allah for forgiveness and mercy for their soul.

    In Islam, it is generally not permissible to pray for an early death before one’s appointed time. Life is considered a precious gift, and seeking death prematurely is discouraged. Instead, it’s encouraged to seek Allah’s help in dealing with difficulties and to show patience and perseverance through challenges. Praying for relief from hardships and strength to endure trials is more aligned with Islamic teachings. If facing emotional or mental distress, seeking professional help and support is important.

    In Islamic prayer (Salat), there are several positions, and prostration (Sajda) is a crucial part of most of them. However, there is one specific prayer where prostration is not performed, and that is the “Salat al-Taraweeh.”Salat al-Taraweeh is a special nightly prayer performed during the Islamic month of Ramadan. It consists of lengthy recitations of the Quran, but unlike the five daily obligatory prayers (Salat al-Fajr, Salat al-Dhuhr, Salat al-Asr, Salat al-Maghrib, and Salat al-Isha), it does not include the prostration (Sajda). Instead, it mainly consists of standing, bowing (Ruku), and sitting.It’s important to note that while prostration is not a part of Salat al-Taraweeh, it is an essential component of the regular daily prayers in Islam.

    The practice guy will be with his emaan  If a devout Muslim passed away alongside non-devout Muslims, they will be resurrected based on their faith’s sincerity.The practice guy will be with his emaan. If he was with the non practicing Muslims for the intention of their betterment it will be good for him and good for others as well.

    If he was with non-devout Muslims with the intention of benefiting them in emaan , it will be beneficial for them and others.

    However, if the devout Muslim was with non-devout Muslims purely for amusement or passing time, and they passed away in that state, it won’t be favorable for them on the Day of Resurrection.

    When someone dies in Islam or passes away Muslims used to say.

    Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un

    This is in Arabic and saying this means

    Verily we belong to Allah, and truly to Him shall we return

    Main purpose of saying Inna Lillahi when someone dies in Islam is to keep remember the day of death. One day this day will come to us too. Everything is temporary no one will live forever. Every single human being and living things will die. As a Muslim we believe everything belongs to Allah and only things happen whatever is the Allah’s will.

    No one can change Allah’s will and no one can fight Allah. No one can fight death and no one can stop his dead day.

    May Allah forgive our sins and send us to Jannah. Amen
