Congregational Dua After Burial

Question

The congregational dua after burial, is it sunnah or bid`ah because the Salatul Janazah has already been performed.

Answer

Making Dua for the deceased after the burial individually and collectively is allowed; however, congregational Dua after burial as accustomed at present time where one supplicates and the others say Aameen is not proven and to regard it necessary is incorrect in Shariah; therefore, Dua should be done individually and softly.

Additionally, to make Dua after the Janaza Salah is incorrect and not proven in Shariah; on the other hand, to make Dua after the burial is proven from Ahadith.
