Bismi'llaah wal hamdu lillaah wa salaatu wa salam 'ala Rasulilaah wa ba'd:

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته


I have a question regarding the Janaazah insha'Allaah.  My Mother (may Allaah preserve her) called me today and said that our local Masjid here in Kalamazoo, Michigan is planning to offer the Janaazah prayer for Yasser Arafat.  She wanted to know if it is from the manhaj of the Salaf to perform multiple Janaazahs in multiple localities for an individual person?  Not withstanding the aqeedah or manhaj of Yasser Arafat, does anyone know the answer to this question according to the Qur'aan, the Sunnah of Rasulullaah صل الله عليه و سلم  or the manhaj of the Salafus-Saalih?


بارك الله فيكم

Taken from Fatawa Islamiyah, Volume 3, Page 65-66 (English Version)

Q. How do we pray over the absent deceased person?

A. The prayer over the absent deseased is just like the prayer over the dceased who is present.  For this reason, when the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallaam) announced the death of An-Najashi, he ordered the people to come out to the designated prayer area and he arranged them in rows.  Then he prouned the Takbir four times, just like the Takbirs over the deceased who is present.

However, should the funeral prayer be prayed over every absent deceased person or not?

In this issue there is a difference amont the people of knowledge.  Among them there are those who say that the prayer should be made over every deceased person who is absent.  Some of them even say that this is necessary for the person to pray the funeral prayer every night, and he should intend by it to pray over whoever died from the Muslims on that day, in the east and the west of the earth.  Others have said that no one should be prayed over (for the absent deceased) except for the one whom it is known that he was not prayed over.  A third group for everyone who had some major influence on the Muslims, such as beneficial knowledge or other things.  The correct view is that no one should be prayed for (as an absent deceased) except whoever did not have prayer performed for him.

In the time of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs (Radhiyallahu anhum) many people died from those who had dominant influences over the Muslims, and the prayer for the absent deceased was not made for any of them.  The fundamental principle concerning acts of worship is At-Tawqif (i.e., it is not to be done) until an evidence is established to prove its legality.
