Salaatul Janaazah For A Person On Whom Ghusl Was Not Done


If a revert Muslim passes and his/her family refuses to allow us to give Ghusl can Salaatul Janaazah still be performed on such a person?


There are six requisites for the validity of the Janaazah Salaah. In the absence of any of these, Janaazah Salaah will not be permitted. Amongst the six requisites is ‘Tahaarat’ of the body. If it is known (through some means) that the body (of the deceased) was Napaak then performing Salaatul Janaazah will not be permitted.   


وشرائطها ستة

إسلام الميت وطهارته وتقدمه أمام القوم وحضوره أو حضور أكثر بدنه أو نصفه مع رأسه وكون المصلي عليها غير راكب بلا عذر وكون الميت على الأرض فإن كان على دابة أو على أيدي الناس لم تجز الصلاة على المختار إلا من عذر (نور الايضاح – باب احكام الجنائز)


اگر پتہ چل جائے  کہ میت ناپاک ہے تو نماز جنازہ  نہیں پڑھی جائے گی – ثمرة النجاح ص125 ج1
