Question

What is the ruling on reciting al-Faatihah during the Janaazah (funeral) prayer?.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

It is obligatory, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “pray as you have seen me praying.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari. And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no prayer for the one who does not recite the Opening of the Book [al-Faatihah].” Saheeh – agreed upon.
