    Default the companions

    salam

    a quick question: how is it the prophet (pbuh) best friends, His companions whom he talked so highly of did not attend his funeral.

    this is not the funeral of a regular person, this is a very sad day when the prophet of Islam passed away. Is there an excuse for such a behavior?

    It says muslim male under your name its your first post you havent introduced yourself and you ask a question like that,hmmm are you a shite?
    And say not concerning that which your tongues put forth falsely: This is lawful and this is forbidden, so as to invent lies against Allaah. Verily, those who invent lies against Allaah will never prosper. [al-Nahl 16:116].

    Syed Qutb (ra) when asked to seek pardon from nasser said
    Verily the index finger that testifies to the oneness of Allah in prayer utterly rejects to write even one letter that endorses the rule of the tyrant

    salam
    I was born to a sunni family from Ethiopia, I live in Canada now and have lost my Islamic identity in the process. I am rediscovering Islam again and decided to start from scratch and learn everything from the basics

    I hope this answers your questions

    by funeral I did not mean washing the body but the salatul-mayit (prayer for the dead person), I understand this is a wajib (obligatory on every adult) and was told the companions did not attend his funeral, is this true or have I been misinformed?

    misinformed. they prayed his janazah 10 ppl at a time, and it took almost two days. imamul mujahideen was buried in the hujrah (small house) of our mother 'Aisha-may Allah be pleased with her. this was the place where he died. the companions didnt take his body out. stay away from rawafidh(shi'as) they will misguide you. one starts to learn driving from a place where he/she wont find traffic jams. read this book:

    The Sahabah did NOT miss the Prophet's funeral. Read:

    The Prophets Funeral

    Although our Shia brothers imply that Abu Bakr ( ) missed out on the Prophets funeral, this is actually not true at all. After he saved the Ummah at Saqifah, Abu Bakr ( ) rushed back to help with the Prophets funeral. In fact, the only thing that Abu Bakr ( ) missed out on was washing the Prophets body, something which is anyways done by the near relatives according to Islamic custom. So we ask our Shia brothers: what exactly did Abu Bakr ( ) miss out on?

    Not only did Abu Bakr ( ) help out with the burial, he was actually the one who is credited with deciding where the Prophet ( ) was to be buried. We read:

    " The task of washing the body being over, the Companions were divided over the place of burial. Abu Bakr then said: 'I have heard from the Messenger of Allah that every Prophet is buried at the spot where he has breathed his last.' The Prophets bedding was accordingly removed from the place and a grave was dug for him at the spot. " (Tareekh al-Islam, Vol.1, p.246)
    This is from the following article which contains a COMPREHENSIVE rebuttal of Shia claims:

    And an even more comprehensive rebuttal is here:

    Enjoy and please let me know what you think of the two above sites Insha-Allah.

    Response to Chapter 7 Entitled Burial of the Prophet

    This is an attested fact.
    Perhaps this is an attested fact in opposite world or in Alice and Wonderland. Abu Bakr ( ) and Umar ( ) did not at all miss the Prophets funeral, not even one single moment of it. Although our Shia brothers imply that Abu Bakr ( ) missed out on the Prophets funeral, this is actually not true at all. After he saved the Ummah at Saqifah, Abu Bakr ( ) rushed back to help with the Prophets funeral. In fact, the only thing that Abu Bakr ( ) missed out on was washing the Prophets body, something which is anyways done by the near relatives according to Islamic custom. So we ask our Shia brothers: what exactly did Abu Bakr ( ) miss out on?

    We read:

    The dead body should preferably be washed by a relative.

    (Everyday Fiqh, Vol.1, by Abdul Aziz Kamal, http://muslim-canada.org/fiqhch29.html)

    Furthermore, only a small handful of people should be present, no more than is absolutely necessary. The reason for this is to maintain the Haya of the body. We read:

    At the washing, only people whose presence is needed may stay.

    (Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Vol.4, Sayyid Saabiq)

    And we read further:

    "The majority of jurists are of the opinion that washing the body of a dead Muslim is a fard kifayah or a collective obligation. If some people attend to it, it is done on behalf of all, as commanded by Allahs Messenger, peace be upon him, and practiced by the Muslim community."

    (Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Vol.4, Sayyid Saabiq)

    In other words:

    1. The Prophets body should have been washed by his close relatives.
    2. No other extra person should be present except those absolutely necessary from amongst his relatives.
    3. The obligation to wash the Prophets body is a communal obligation; the Prophets relatives removed any obligation from the shoulders of the rest of the community, including Abu Bakr ( ) and Umar ( ) .

    Had Abu Bakr ( ) or Umar ( ) insisted upon washing the body, then this would have been wrong, as is clear from one who knows Fiqh. As for the Prophets funeral, not only did Abu Bakr ( ) help out with the burial, he was actually the one who is credited with deciding where the Prophet ( ) was to be buried. We read:

    The task of washing the body being over, the Companions were divided over the place of burial. Abu Bakr then said: I have heard from the Messenger of Allah that every Prophet is buried at the spot where he has breathed his last. The Prophets bedding was accordingly removed from the place and a grave was dug for him at the spot.
    (Tareekh al-Islam, Vol.1, p.246)

    And so we wonder: what part of the Prophets funeral did Abu Bakr ( ) or Umar ( ) miss out on? We see clearly from Tareekh al-Islam and other credible history books that it was only the task of washing the body that Abu Bakr ( ) missed out on, something which he would not have taken part in anyways due to the fact that it is a task given to near relatives only.
    This is all from the second link I posted in the above post.
