Funeral Prayer offered for soothsayers

Q 3: Is it permissible to perform the Funeral Prayer for a soothsayer or a foreteller when they die, if they used to perform Salah (Prayer)?


A: If a soothsayer or a foreteller dies while known to be in that same state, (Part No. 1; Page No. 602) and they still claim knowledge of the Ghayb (Unseen), it is not permissible to perform the Funeral Prayer for them, even if they performed Salah regularly. Their involvement in claiming knowledge of the Ghayb is major Kufr (disbelief), which renders Salah and other acts of `Ibadah (worship) null and void.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
