Hadith Explanation

Funeral Prayers Induce Pious Deeds

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Do say the funeral prayers. This prayer may induce feelings of sorrow in you. A sorrowful man remains under the shadow of Allah and welcomes every pious deed.” [Hakim]

Do join funeral prayers. The funeral prayer is a petition for mercy for the deceased. This is a duty everyone owes to the dead.

In addition, as you pray for the person who was percolating coffee yesterday, but today is as still as a stone, it might induce you to think about the purpose of life.
