Virtue: In many ahadith, the Prophet Muhammad The Messenger of Allah Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) emphasised and encouraged the Muslims to attend the funeral ceremonies. Every Muslim male should try his best to fulfil his duty towards the deceased. If no one from the whole of Muslim community offers Janazah prayers, then the whole community will be considered sinful in the sight of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala). If some of the people offer Janazah prayer then the whole community will be saved from the anger of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala). There are 4 Takbeers in funeral prayer in Islam
