Janaazah Salaah Without The Presence Of The Deceased


I would like to find out the ruling with regards to performing janazah salaah in a different town, city or country without the janazah being present. eg. a persons janazah takes place in Azaadville and other janazah salaahs are being read in Durban or Zambia, etc.


It is not permissible according to the Hanafi Maadhab to perform Janaazah Salaah while theJanaazah is not present.

Mufti Muhammed Saeed Motara Saheb D.B.
