Dua in Janaazah Salaah – 2

After the third takbeer in janaazah salaah, one should recite the following dua:

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لَهُ وَارْحَمْهُ وَعَافِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنْهُ وَأَكْرِمْ نُزُلَهُ وَوَسِّعْ مَدْخَلَهُ وَاغْسِلْهُ بِالْمَاءِ وَالثَّلْجِ وَالْبَرَدِ وَنَقِّهِ مِنَ الْخَطَايَا كَمَا يُنَقَّى الثَّوْبُ الْأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ وَأَبْدِلْهُ دَارًا خَيْرًا مِنْ دَارِهِ وَأَهْلًا خَيْرًا مِنْ أَهْلِهِ وَزَوْجًا خَيْرًا مِنْ زَوْجِهِ وَأَدْخِلْهُ الْجَنَّةَ وَأَعِذْهُ مِنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ وَعَذَابِ النَّارِ

O Allah, forgive him, have mercy on him, grant him aafiyah (peace) and pardon him. Grant him an honoured stay and make his grave spacious. Wash him with water, snow and hail. Cleanse him from his sins as a white garment is cleansed from dirt. Grant him an abode better than his (earthly abode), with a household better than his household and a wife better than his wife. Admit him into Paradise and protect him from the punishment of the grave and the punishment of Jahannum.

عن جبير بن نفير، سمعه يقول: سمعت عوف بن مالك، يقول: صلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم على جنازة، فحفظت من دعائه وهو يقول: اللهم اغفر له وارحمه وعافه واعف عنه، وأكرم نزله، ووسع مدخله، واغسله بالماء والثلج والبرد، ونقه من الخطايا كما نقيت الثوب الأبيض من الدنس، وأبدله دارا خيرا من داره، وأهلا خيرا من أهله وزوجا خيرا من زوجه، وأدخله الجنة وأعذه من عذاب القبر أو من عذاب النار قال: حتى تمنيت أن أكون أنا ذلك الميت (صحيح مسلم، الرقم: 963)

Hazrat Auf bin Maalik (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) performed the janaazah salaah. I had memorized the abovementioned dua from him (which he recited in the janaazah salaah).

He further says (after hearing this dua of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)), “I wished that I had been the deceased (for whom Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam made this dua).”
