Burying the deceased without performing the funeral prayer


What should we do if a deceased person was buried without a funeral prayer?


If a deceased person was buried without his funeral prayer being offered, it is obligatory on others to offer the funeral prayer at his grave once. (So long as it is not regarded that the body may have started to decay).

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
