How to read the funeral prayer

Question:

In the funeral prayer, does the Muqtadi just recite Thana and then remain silent or does he recite Thana, Durud and Du’a, just as the Imam does?

Answer:

The Muqtadi should also recite everything as there is only Zikr and Du’a in the funeral prayer. There is no recitation of the Holy Qur’an. The Muqtadis are forbidden to recite the Qur’an only. As far as reciting other Du’as and Azkar are concerned, the Muqtadis can recite these just as the Imam can.

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
