Is there a Hadith which encourages reciting salutations on Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) (durud) when lowering a body into the grave?
I have not come across a Hadith of this nature.
‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) states that there is no proof for reciting salutations when lowering the body into the grave.
(Al Qawlul Badi’, pg. 413)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
