Is the Janazah valid if only the Imam has a prayer mat?

Question: What do the expert scholars of shari’ah say: During the funeral prayer, the Imam has a prayer mat but those praying behind them do not. Shall the prayer be valid in such a situation?

Answer:

It is certain that the prayer shall be valid in this case. There is also no reason to see this as Makruh (disliked).

And Allah Most-High knows best.

Imam Ahmad Rida Khan رحمة الله تعالى عليه
