PHOTOS: How To Organize The Islamic Funeral (Janazah) For Those Killed By COVID-19

Dear brothers and sisters, right here are some brief explanations on the rules of non-secular bathe due to COVID-19 Restrictions:

1. If you cannot perform the spiritual bathe of the deceased person due to the COVID-19 restrictions, then make dry ablution or purification with the earth instead.

How to make dry ablution:

Strike the earth with each hand, wipe the face of the deceased, then his hands. Then shroud as every day with three giant sheets, pray the funeral prayer and bury.

Don't overlook to say before starting: In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

2. If you can't function obligatory bathe or dry ablution due to the fact of the COVID-19 restrictions, then shroud him with three giant sheets, pray the funeral prayer and bury your deceased. This is due to the truth that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) commanded that the Janazah be hastened and no longer delayed, he said.

Hurry with the burial.” [Bukhari]

And, if the COVID-19 restrictions disallow touching the body, even with rubber gloves, then that does not prevent the Muslims from doing as an awful lot as they are in a position for the deceased Muslim to enjoy his rights. This is due to the announcing of Allah the Highest:

Fear Allah and hold your duty to Him as a good deal as you can.” [Surah At-Taghabun, 16]

And due to the pronouncing of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him):

And something I command you with does like plenty of it as you are able.” [Buhari and Muslim]

So, the Muslims are commanded to do as a lot as they can in pleasing their obligations.

Delaying the burial of Muslims for days, weeks (or months) while waiting for the authorities to lift the restrictions is not right, because the rules concerning the individual who is assumed to have died from COVID-19 are not going to alter regardless of time. Moreover, due to the truth that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) commanded with hurrying the burial and no longer delaying it.

3. If the physique is sealed in a plastic bag (or a body-bag) through the authorities and the prison restrictions, do not permit the bag to be opened, consequently, neither Ghusl (washing) nor Tayammum (dry ablution) is possible. In that case, the plastic body bag is shrouded in three massive fabric sheets, accompanied by means of the funeral prayer and burial.

4. If the COVID-19 restrictions do not allow massive numbers of Muslims to pray the funeral prayer for the deceased so that even close family are compelled to miss the Janazah, then it is permissible for a small group to pray the funeral prayer for the deceased and then bury him. Then, those that have been no longer capable to pray can go to the grave in small businesses (or even individually) and pray a funeral prayer over a duration of a few weeks after the grave.

This is done by standing so that the grave of the deceased is between you and the Qiblah, and then pray the Janazah as normal. The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) did this for a lady who had died in the night, so the Companions prayed her funeral prayer, and she used to be buried The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was once now not informed, so he went to her grave and prayed the funeral prayer.

5. The Muslims, even in small agencies have to make three rows at the back of the Imam. The Abu Umamah (RA) cited that:

“The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) prayed Janazah and there were with him only seven people. So, he positioned three in the first row, two in another row and two extra in another row.”

6. If the deceased Muslim was buried via the authorities except anyone having prayed over him, specifically in non-Muslim countries, then the Muslims should ask for the location of the grave and pray at the grave as defined previously.

And if the Muslims do no longer understand the place he used to be buried, they can establish the funeral prayer in the absence of the physique. Know that you did that as the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) did for Najjashi, the King of Abyssinia. In this situation, the funeral prayer is performed in the normal manner without that the physique is not present.

7. It is permissible to perform the funeral prayer in the identical room the place the washing and shrouding of the deceased took place. And, funeral prayer in an open vicinity outside the Mosque is better, though it is permissible to pray it in the Mosque.

8. When praying Janazah (funeral prayer), make the rows in the prayer as normal. However, if the COVID-19 restrictions stop that, then keep the required gaps between every individual and pray the Janazah in that fashion. This is due to the pronouncing of Allah, the Highest:

Fear Allah and hold your responsibility to Him as much as you can.” [Surah At-Taghabun, 16]

And due to the announcing of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him):

And something I command you with do as a great deal of it as you are able.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

9. It is allowed to bury greater than one person in a grave if there is a want for that, such as a situation where the bodies of deceased are several and the places to bury them are few. In this situation, the Muslim who knew the greater Qur’an is placed first, closest to the Qiblah in the grave, and they are laid next to each other. The students have additionally stated that between every of the deceased there be a barrier (or mound) of soil.

May Allah in His Infinite Mercy forgive the death ones among us, guard us, heal the contaminated sufferers of COVID-19 among us, and all sick all over the world, and do away with the epidemic absolutely from the floor of the earth. Amen.
