    Mourning in Islam

    Report bad ads?

    Salaam

    I was just seeking some clarifications about the hadith regarding the length of mourning.

    Is it three days after the death of the person, or three days after his janazah? Because sadly my father passed away on Saturday, and three days have gone (and we all went to the masjid and ate there, etc), but his janazah will most likely be on Friday (as they are conducting a post-mortem to find out the reason for the death, it's a law in this country).

    Jazakallah.

    وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِّمَّن دَعَا إِلَى اللَّـهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ

    inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'oon. May Allah forgive him and grant him Jannatul Firdaus. May Allah help you in this difficult time.

    The time for condolence starts after the death and it can continue after the burial as well.

    Mourning in Islam

    Do you think the pious don't sin?

    They merely:
    Veiled themselves and didn't flaunt it
    Sought forgiveness and didn't persist
    Took ownership of it and don't justify it
    And acted with excellence after they had erred - Ibn al-Qayyim

    Re: Mourning in Islam

    inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un

    The hadiths I found say about prohibition on women mourning more than 3 days except for her husband. Is this applicable to men, Allah knows best.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I misread the question.

    According to this hadith, it's 3 days after death.

    It was narrated that Zainab bint Umm Salamah said:"Umm Habibah said: 'I heard the Messenger of Allah say: It is not permissible for a woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to mourn for anyone who dies for more than three days, except for a husband; (she mourns for him for) four months and ten (days)." (Sunan An Nasa'i)
