O Allah, forgive [name of the person] and elevate his station among those who are guided. Send him along the path of those who came before, and forgive us and him, O Lord of the worlds. Enlarge for him his grave and shed light upon him in it.
Decide on the congregation duaa for the deceased and pay the imam for reciting the duaa
In our state, people brought the imam of the masjid and asked him to do a congregational duet for their deceased relatives (in front of the grave). I have five questions here;
1) Does Allah accept prayer for the dead (near the grave) by someone other than his just son? (As seen in a hadith) ..
2) Will not Allah accept the prayer of a righteous girl? ..
3) Is not this congregational dua a bid’ah? ..
4) Paying the imaam for praying to Allah seems to be so horrible. Is not it wrong?
5) My parent has justified the fact that imaams are paid so low here. So, those who need extra money to support their families. Is this a good justification?
Praise be to Allah.
After the burial, the offering for the dead is prescribed by Islam and may be made by his son and others because of the hadeeth of Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan (may Allah be pleased with him) who has stated: When the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) had finished burying a dead person, he stood beside him and said, “Pray for your brother to be forgiven and ask that he is unshakeable, because he is now questioned.
Reported by Abu Dawood (3221); classified as saheeh by al-Albaani in Ahkaam al-Janaa’iz, p. 198
It is a mustahabb that every Muslim attends the funeral and offers ‘aa’ to the deceased.
The du’aa of a girl just for her father is included in the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “When a man dies, all his good deeds cease except three: permanent charity (sadaqah jaariyah ), a beneficial knowledge or a just child who will pray for him. Narrated by Muslim (1631) from Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him). In Arabic, the word walad (here translated as “child”, the plural is awlaad) includes the masculine and feminine terms, as in the verse in which Allah, exalted, says: “Allah commands you with regard to your children [awlaadikum] (inheritance); to the male, a portion equal to that of two females “[an-Nisa ‘4:10].
Congregational du’aa after burial, if it happens occasionally and does not become a regular practice, or if one of them offers du’aa and the others say Ameen, is considered acceptable by some scholars.
But if they always do it each time there is a funeral or if they visit the deceased, or if they fix a specific moment to gather, or if they recite du’aa ‘in unison So it’s kind of bid’ah and innovation. Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was interrogated:
I see people standing on the grave after the burial and offering duaa for him. Is it allowed? And is there a prescribed duaa to say after the burial? Should the duaa be offered in congregation, as if a person were saying duaa and the others were saying Ameen to his duaa? Or should each person offer duaa on their own? Please tell us, may Allah reward you well.
Answer: The Sunnah proved by the Messenger (blessings and salvation be upon him) indicates that it is prescribed to give duaa to the deceased after burial. When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had finished burying a dead person, he was standing near him and saying, “Pray for the forgiveness of your brother and ask that he be made unwavering because he is interviewed now. .
“There is nothing wrong with a person saying du’aa ‘and others with Ameen, or that each person offers du’aa’ for himself to the deceased. And Allah is the source of strength.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was also questioned: What is the decision on the congregation offer of duaa to the graves?
He has answered:
There is nothing wrong with that. If someone says du’aa and others say Ameen, there’s nothing wrong with that, as long as it’s not done deliberately and sometimes they hear one of them who says du’aa ‘and the others say Ameen. . In such cases, it is not called “congregation” because it is not done deliberately.
End of the quote from Fataawa ash-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 13/340
It is not prescribed to pay the Imam for the offering of “aa” to the deceased, and it is not the Sunnah to stay long before the grave. What good is the duaa of a man hired for this purpose ?!

The poor imams should be helped by funds of zakaah and charity, and it is not allowed to encourage them in innovations.
And Allah knows better.
