Prayers (dua) During Janaza (funeral) in Islam





Performing janaza (funeral) on the dead is very important in Islam, and there are some prayers (duas) which are needed to be recited during this process of burying someone according to sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him).


These prayers are to be recited when visiting the grave, during the funeral, while placing the dead in the grave, and after the burial of the dead.

PRAYER WHEN VISITING THE GRAVE

السَّلامُ عَلَـيْكُمْ أَهْلَ الدِّيارِ مِنَ المؤْمِنيـنَ وَالْمُسْلِمين، وَإِنّا إِنْ شاءَ اللهُ بِكُـمْ لاحِقـون، وَيَرْحَمُ اللَّهُ الـمُستَقْدِمينَ مِنَّا والـمُستأخِرينَ. أسْـأَلُ اللهَ لنـا وَلَكُـمْ العـافِيَة

Translation

Peace be upon you all, O inhabitants of the graves, amongst the believers and the Muslims. Verily we will, Allah willing, be united with you, May Allah have mercy on the first of us and the last of us. I ask Allah for well-being for us and you.

PRAYER DURING FUNERAL

OR

اللَّهُـمَّ اغْفِـرْ لَهُ وَارْحَمْـه، وَعافِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنْـه، وَأَكْـرِمْ نُزُلَـه، وَوَسِّـعْ مُدْخَـلَه، وَاغْسِلْـهُ بِالْمَـاءِ وَالثَّـلْجِ وَالْبَـرَدْ، وَنَقِّـهِ مِنَ الْخَطَـايَا كَمَا نَـقَّيْتَ الـثَّوْبَ الأَبْيَـضَ مِنَ الدَّنَـس، وَأَبْـدِلْهُ دَاراً خَـيْراً مِنْ دَارِه، وَأَهْلاً خَـيْراً مِنْ أَهْلِـه، وَزَوْجَـاً خَـيْراً مِنْ زَوْجِه، وَأَدْخِـلْهُ الْجَـنَّة، 
وَأَعِـذْهُ مِنْ عَذابِ القَـبْر وَعَذابِ النّـار

Translation

O Allah, forgive and have mercy upon him, excuse him and pardon him, and make honourable his reception. Expand his entry, and cleanse him with water, snow, and ice, and purify him of sin as a white robe is purified of filth. Exchange his home for a better home, and his family for a better family, and his spouse for a better spouse. Admit him into the Garden, protect him from the punishment of the grave and the torment of the Fire.

O Allah, forgive our living and our dead, those present and those absent, our young and our old, our males and our females.

O Allah, do not deprive us of his reward and do not let us stray after him.
