A group of Pakistani Muslims praying Salat al-Mayyit in congregation.

Salat al-Mayyit (Arabic: صلاة الميت, prayer for the dead; also referred to as Namaz-e-Janazah and Salah al-Janazah) is an obligatory prayer that is performed for a Muslim who dies. The prayer is categorized as wajib kifaee and thus while it is incumbent upon all Muslims to perform it, if a Muslim or a group of Muslims do so, the rest are excused.
