f:758 -    What to do on seeing a funeral of a non-Muslim
Country : India,
Name : Syed Attari
Question:     Assalamalaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakutuhu,

What I have to ask is can we recite "Fin Naar Wa Saqar" on seeing the funeral of a non-Muslim?  Please answer this question.

Answer:     Walaikum As Salaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakutuhu,

There is no commandment against reciting the words "Fin Naari Wa Saqar" (In fire and hell) on seeing the funeral of a non-Muslim, but it is better to take this occasion as a warning, that if that person had embraced Islam, then he would have deserved paradise, but is going to hell only because of his/her disbelief.  Thus, on this occasion we should pray that we depart from this world with our faith intact and remind ourselves of hereafter.


And Allah Most High knows best.
