Ruling on a deceased person who used to abandon Salah
What is the ruling on those who die who, while alive, would perform no more than Jumu`ah (Friday) Salah? Is it obligatory on Muslims to bury them and offer funeral Salah on their behalf?
If what you have just mentioned is the case, bear in mind that Muslim scholars unanimously agreed that one who abandons Salah denying its being obligatory is a Kafir (disbeliever). If he abandons it out of negligence while believing it to be obligatory, he is deemed according to the sound opinion of scholars to be a Kafir due to authentic evidence to this effect. Based on this sound opinion, the dead body of such a person may not be washed and Muslims may not offer funeral Salah on his behalf. Moreover, such a person may not be buried in Muslim graveyards. Rather, he may be buried in a specific location apart from Muslim graveyards.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
