Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) performed ‘Aaishah’s (radiyallahu ‘anha) Janazah Salah


Is this correct?

‘Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) performed the Janazah Salah of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha).’



Yes, this is correct. Imam Ibn Sa’d and Imam Hakim (rahimahumallah) have recorded a narration which mentions this.

(Tabaqat Ibn Sa’d, vol. 8 pg. 64, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 4)


This has also been mentioned and accepted in the books of many Hadith commentators, biographers of Sahabah and historians.

To name a few:

Al Isti’ab, vol. 4 pg. 438, Usdul Ghabah, vol. 7 pg. 189, Tahdhibul Kamal, vol. 35 pg. 235, Tarikhul Islam, vol. 3 pg. 510, ‘Umdatul Qari, Hadith: 2, vol. 1 pg. 72, Mirqat, Hadith: 84 and Sharhuz Zurqani ‘Alal Mawahib, vol. 4 pg. 392.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
