What is the Arabic Alphabet?
Ma hi huruf alllughat alearabi?
ما هي حروف اللغة العربية؟

The Arabic alphabet consists of 28 letters, reading from right to left.

How are Arabic letters written?

How many letters are in the Arabic alphabet?
The Arabic alphabet contains 28 letters.

When was the Arabic alphabet created?
Although Arabic inscriptions are most common after the birth of Islam (7th century CE), the origin of the Arabic alphabet lies deeper in time. The Nabataeans, which established a kingdom in what is modern-day Jordan from the 2nd century BCE, were Arabs.

The Phoenician script evolved in several directions, with one branch developing into Greek and later the modern Latin alphabet. The other evolved into Aramaic, which branched out again from there into Nabataean. Several writing systems including the Arabic script and the various Arabic Scripts, all derive from Nabataean, which was in use from the 2nd century BC in what is modern day Jordan.

What is Modern Standard Arabic?
In its written form, Modern Standard Arabic is the language of literature and the media. Books, newspapers, magazines, official documents, private and business correspondence, street signs and shop signs – all are written in Modern Standard Arabic.

Modern Standard Arabic is taught at schools, universities and colleges. There are no local varieties of Modern Standard Arabic. The language is exactly the same across the Arab world.

Where and when is Modern Standard Arabic spoken?
Spoken Modern Standard Arabic is the language used on television, in government and parliament, and on official occasions, like conferences and seminars. It is also used in religious assemblies, sermons of the Friday prayers, etc.

But isn't Modern Standard Arabic difficult to learn?
Learning Modern Standard Arabic requires more effort than learning a spoken Arabic dialect, but it is an effort with a much bigger payoff.

Knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic opens the doors to the whole Arab World.

Modern Standard Arabic (and its roots in Classical Arabic) is the heart and soul of the Arabic language and the greatest treasure of the Arab culture.

What is Spoken Arabic / the Arabic Dialects?
Spoken Arabic (also called "Colloquial Arabic", or simply "Arabic Dialects" ) differs from Modern Standard Arabic in the following:
1.The grammatical structure is simpler.
2.Some letters are pronounced differently, and pronunciation also differs between dialects.
3.Some words and expressions are more or less unique to their respective dialects.
4.Spoken Arabic only occurs in written form when a humorist or popular touch is desired.
5. The vocabulary and style are more casual. Slang words and expressions are used that don't have equivalents in Modern Standard Arabic.

How many Arabic dialects are there?
Spoken Arabic can be broadly categorized into the following, main dialect groups: •North African Arabic (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya),

•Hassaniya Arabic (Mauritania),

•Egyptian Arabic,

•Levantine Arabic (Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Palestine),

•Iraqi Arabic,

•Gulf Arabic (Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Iran, Medina, Mecca, Riyadh, Eastern province, Qatar, the U.A.E. and Oman).

•Hejazi Arabic (Western Saudi Arabia)

•Najdi Arabic (Central Saudi Arabia).

•Yemeni Arabic (Yemen & southwestern Saudi Arabia).

How big differences are there between the Arabic dialects?
There is one original Arabic used in the Qur’an and called Classical Arabic (CA). It is the archaic form that was spoken from around VII to IX centuries.

Then there is Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). This language is the same as Classical Arabic except it is adapted in some ways and geared more towards casual speech.

•Differences between dialects of the Middle East (Egypt, the Levant, Iraq and the Gulf) are small enough to enable Arabs of different nationalities to understand one another fairly well.

•North African dialects are more unique in structure and vocabulary, and can be a real challenge to understand, even to Arabs of the Middle East.

•Within the main dialect groups, there are regional sub-dialects. Like in other parts of the world, there are differences between the city language and the provincial dialects.

•The most widely understood dialects are Egyptian and Levantine Arabic. The Egyptian media industry has traditionally played a dominant in the Arab world. A huge number of cinema productions, television dramas and comedies have since long familiarized Arab audiences with the Egyptian dialect.

•The satellite television channels have made it easier for other dialects to reach wider audiences. Popular showbiz programs often have Lebanese hosts. This has given the Lebanese dialect something of a fashion status.

So, which type of Arabic would it be better for you to learn? •If your interest is not limited to one particular country, you should choose Modern Standard Arabic. Once you have basic knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic, learning a dialect becomes an easy task. With, learning Arabic becomes easy and enjoyable, so give it a try and start learning Arabic here.

•Learning to read, write and speak Modern Standard Arabic, and later learning the basics of a dialect, is the best route to sound knowledge of Arabic.

•Educated Arabs, from the middle class and upwards, are quite comfortable conversing in Modern Standard Arabic. Since this form of Arabic serves as a lingua franca across the Arabic-speaking world, speaking with a Mauritanian or an Omani becomes equally easy.

•The choice of language generally depends on the educational level of the person you are addressing. For instance, ordering a shawarma in the street is best done in the local dialect, and so is grabbing a cab.

•If you are going to spend just a short time in an Arab country, you should try to learn the basics of that country's main dialect. This would help you manage the basic day-to-day routines, although it would not make you understand anything written.

•It should be noted that many Arabs have attitudes towards certain dialects. For example, although held in high esteem in Egypt, the Cairo dialect is often looked upon with amusement by non-Egyptian Arabs.

•Finally, if you know Moroccan or Algerian Arabic, you can't use it in the Middle East (east of Libya), since nobody would understand what you are saying.

Arabic numbers III: 11-1000

If you’re looking for the numbers 1-10, and you should before you read this, go here.

When it comes to the higher numbers, everything after ۱۰ (10) follows some kind of pattern, so after we get through the teens I’ll only be showing a few examples to illustrate the pattern.

11-19; as in English, where we say “thirteen” or “three-ten,” Arabic will say ثلاثة عشر (thalāthah ʿashr, literally “three-ten”). Unlike English, Arabic doesn’t break the patter for “eleven” and “twelve,” and good for Arabic in my opinion.

Now we can count up by tens:

  • 20 (twenty): عِشرون (ʿishrūn) or ۲۰
  • 30 (thirty): ثَلاثون (thalāthūn) or ۳۰
  • 40 (forty): أربَعون (arbaʿūn) or ٤۰
  • 50 (fifty): خَمسون (khamsūn) or ۵۰
  • 60 (sixty): سِتّون (sittūn) or ٦۰
  • 70 (seventy): سَبعون (sabʿūn) or ۷۰
  • 80 (eighty): ثَمانون (thamānūn) or ۸۰
  • 90 (ninety): تِسعون (tisʿūn) or ۹۰

And now by hundreds:

  • 100 (one hundred): مِئة (miʾah or, more archaically, مائة) or ۱۰۰
  • 200: مئتان (miʾatān — dual form of مئة) or ۲۰۰
  • 300: ثلاث مئة (thalāth miʾah) or ۳۰۰
  • 400: أربع مئة (arbaʿ miʾah) or ٤۰۰
  • 500: خمس مئة (khams miʾah) or ۵۰۰
  • 600: ستّ مئة (sitt miʾah) or ٦۰۰
  • 700: سبع مئة (sabʿ miʾah) or ۷۰۰
  • 800: ثمان مئة (thamān miʾah) or ۸۰۰
  • 900: تسع مئة (tisʿ miʾah) or ۹۰۰
  • 1000 (one thousand): ألف (alf) or ۱۰۰۰

When you’re stringing numbers together you just use a lot of “ands,” and you read from the smallest number up, like so:

  • 28 (twenty-eight): ۲۸ (ثمانية و عشرون, thamāniyah wa ʿishrūn)
  • 51 (fifty-one): ۵۱ (واحد و خَمسون, wāḥid wa khamsūn)
  • 739 (seven hundred thirty-nine): ۷۳۹ (تسعة و ثلاثون و سبع مئة, tisʿah wa thalāthūn wa sabʿ miʾah)

To somebody accustomed to a left-to-right writing system, it seems like Arabic strangely writes its large numerals left-to-right (above, “739” is ۷۳۹), even though the rest of the language is written from right-to-left. However, if you put it in your head that Arabic reads numbers from smallest to largest, not largest to smallest like us European-speaking types, then you see that these large numerals are actually also written right-to-left (smallest to largest). I would illustrate this by juxtaposing some numerals with some text, but for some reason the combination of Arabic numerals and Arabic text is impossible for WordPress to format correctly, at least in a post that’s mostly written in English.

When counting things with these higher numbers, you counter-intuitively follow the number with the singular noun, in indefinite accusative (direct object) case, and the singles digit part of the whole number takes the opposite gender as the noun. I know; just try not to think about it. For example, “73 books” (book is a masculine noun, كتاب) would be ثلاثة و سبعون كتاباً (thalāthah wa sabʿūn kitāban), and “57 magazines” (magazine is a feminine noun, مجلّة) would be ًسبع و خمسون مجلّة (sabʿ wa khamsūn majallatan).

28 (twenty-eight): ۲۸ (ثمانية و عشرون, thamāniyah wa ʿishrūn) 51 (fifty-one): ۵۱ (واحد و خَمسون, wāḥid wa khamsūn) 739 (seven hundred thirty-nine): ۷۳۹ (تسعة و ثلاثون و سبع مئة, tisʿah wa thalāthūn wa sabʿ miʾah) 100 (one hundred): مِئة (miʾah or, more archaically, مائة) or ۱۰۰ 200: مئتان (miʾatān — dual form of مئة) or ۲۰۰ 300: ثلاث مئة (thalāth miʾah) or ۳۰۰ 400: أربع مئة (arbaʿ miʾah) or ٤۰۰ 500: خمس مئة (khams miʾah) or ۵۰۰ 600: ستّ مئة (sitt miʾah) or ٦۰۰ 700: سبع مئة (sabʿ miʾah) or ۷۰۰ 800: ثمان مئة (thamān miʾah) or ۸۰۰ 900: تسع مئة (tisʿ miʾah) or ۹۰۰ 1000 (one thousand): ألف (alf) or ۱۰۰۰

How does one count years?
Years are counted since the Hijra, that is, Mohammed’s emigration to Medina in AD 622.

Who made the Islamic calendar?
The Islamic calendar, which is based purely on lunar cycles, was introduced in 638CE by Umar bin al Khattab, who was a close Companion of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the second Caliph of Islam.

What year is it in Islam?
Each numbered year is designated either "H" for Hijra or "AH" for the Latin Anno Hegirae ("in the year of the Hijra"); hence, Muslims typically call their calendar the Hijri calendar. The current Islamic year is 1437 AH. In the Gregorian calendar, 1437 AH runs from approximately 14 October 2015 to 2 October 2016.

What is the Islamic calendar based on?
The Islamic calendar, Muslim calendar or Hijri calendar (AH) is a lunar calendar consisting of 12 months in a year of 354 days.

How did the Islamic (Hijri) Calendar Begin?
Omar Ibn Al-Khattab عــمــر بــن الــخــطــاب was the second Muslim Caliph. During his time, the expansion of the Muslim lands was exceptional. One day and 17 years after the Hijrah incident and precisely in the year 622 A.D. the Caliph Omar received a Saqq صــك (check شــيــك) that was due in the month of Sha’ban شــعــبــان. Muslims till that time still had no calendar of their own, so Omar wondered which Sha’ban? Was it the last? Is it this current? Or Is it that coming next year!?. Because of this incident, Omar had a meeting with his assistants and decided to start their own Muslim calendar. The question was when to start it. There were many suggestions of important Islamic events, but Ali Ibn Abi-Talib عــلــي بــن أبــي طــالــب suggested the year when the prophet migrated from Mecca to Madina and that was it.

So, The Muslim calendar was started by the Second Muslim Caliph Omar Ibn Al-Khattab in the year 17 A.H. (After Hijra). It is also called the Arabic Calendar or the Islamic Calendar.

    What Are the Different Forms of Arabic?
    Classical Arabic

    What is classical Arabic?
    Arabic has been in usage in the Arabian Peninsula for at least 2000 years. Classical Arabic is the formal version that was used in the Al-Hijaz region 1500 years ago. Written records of the language include poetry that was composed in pre-Islamic times (ca. 600 AD). The Quran was revealed in Classical Arabic, which is the main reason why the language has preserved its purity throughout the centuries. Arabs consider Classical Arabic an important part of their culture. Throughout Islamic history, Classical Arabic has been the language of royal and princely courts, the bureaucracy and the learned. Literary expression was conducted mainly in Classical Arabic. Mastery of Classical Arabic and the exhibition of this mastery, using both written and oral mediums, has always led to respect and awe.

    What is Modern Standard Arabic (MSA)?
    Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), as its name indicates, is the modern counterpart of Classical Arabic. It is the official language of 44 Arab ________ where it is used in the oral and written form on all formal occasions. The main difference between MSA and Classical Arabic lies in the vocabulary. MSA reflects the needs of contemporary expression whereas Classical Arabic reflects the needs of older styles.

    What is colloquial Arabic?
    Colloquial Arabic is the spoken Arabic used by Arabs in their every day lives. Unlike MSA that is uniform in all Arab ______, colloquial Arabic is subject to regional variation, not only between different ______, but also across regions in the same ______.

    What are the main Arabic dialects?
    Whereas MSA is the same throughout the Arab world, the dialects vary according to the geographical location. The further away the ______, the greater the variation between the dialects. In a broad sense there is a wide difference between the dialects of eastern ______ (Arabian Peninsula) and dialects of western ______ (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and western Libya). Dialects in the Middle East, may be broadly classified as follows:

    • Dialects of Egypt and Sudan
    • Dialects of the Arabian Peninsula
    • Dialects of Syria, Lebanon and Palestine
    • Dialects of Iraq
    • Dialects of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and western Libya

    Within each category, further sub-classification takes place, depending amongst other factors – on the location, level of education, and degree of urbanization.

    Does Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) ever overlap with colloquial Arabic?
    Whereas all Arabs use MSA for the exchange of printed information, especially on formal occasions, Arabic dialects are predominantly used for oral communication. Arabic as a spoken language has thus become more flexible. Although all dialects may have descended from a single source (which is either Classical Arabic or another spoken variety of it), their development was not tied to the norms or rules of Classical Arabic. However, in spite of the differences between all Arabic dialects, their underlying structures are quite similar.

    In fact, it is very difficult to find a situation where one type is used exclusively. For example, MSA is used in formal speeches or interviews. However, as soon as the speaker diverts away from his well-prepared speech in order to add a comment or respond to a question, the rate of colloquial usage in his speech increases dramatically. How much MSA versus colloquial is used depends on the speaker, the topic, and the situation. At the other end of the spectrum, public education, as well as exposure to mass media, has introduced MSA elements amongst the least educated so it would be equally difficult to find an Arab speaker whose speech is totally unaffected by MSA.

    Can Arabs from different regions communicate with each other in their respective dialects?
    Arabic speakers from various parts of the world do communicate in their respective dialects.

    However, the degree and ease of comprehensibility depends on two factors:

    • The geographical location pertaining to the dialects

    • The level of exposure to each dialect

    With regards the first factor, Algerians may have more trouble communicating with Saudis than they would with Tunisians, as Algeria is much closer to Tunisia than it is to Saudi Arabia. With regards to the second factor, the average Arab throughout the Arab world has no problem whatsoever understanding the Egyptian dialect as they are all exposed to it via popular TV programs, films and music produced in Egypt.

    Should a non-native Arabic learner study MSA, Classical Arabic, or one of the dialects, or all three?
    Before venturing on a learning journey, you should choose the learning exercise that would best match your objectives. If your goal is to do research, be able to read/understand Arabic books or the media, or use Arabic in formal situations, then MSA is what you need to study. If you are going to use Arabic mainly in the spoken form in order to communicate with people on the streets, then colloquial Arabic may suffice. It is important to note that by studying MSA as the basis of your Arabic language knowledge, you easily acquire the colloquial form, as it is in many ways a simplified version of MSA. Non-Arabic speaking Muslims who wish to learn Arabic for religious purposes often find learning Classical Arabic to be most rewarding.

    Which dialect should a non-native Arabic learner study?
    If you know in advance the region or ______ where you may use Arabic, then, you should choose its dialect. If, on the other hand, no such plans are definite, then it may be wiser to choose one of the dialects that is most easily comprehensible throughout the Arab region, such as the Medina/Egyptian one.

    Days, months and years

    Compilers of a calendar, attempting to record and to predict the passage of time, are offered an easy first step in the cycle of the moon.

    The only two measures of time available to primitive people are the day (the space between two nights) and the month (the space between new moons). The month is a well adjusted length of time for recalling fairly recent events, and it has a magic significance through its loose link with the female menstrual period. A far more important slice of time is the year, a full circuit of the earth round the sun - crucial in human activities because of its influence on seasons and crops. But the length of a year is exceptionally hard to measure.

    Zikr in Islam

    So remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me.
    (Al-Baqarah Surah, 2:152)
    Faz kuru_ni azkurkum wasykuru_ li wala_ takfuru_n(i).

    What does dhikr mean?
    The simplest English translation of the Arabic term zhikr, is Remembrance. It is a key term and concept in Islam, since it is mentioned in many places throughout the Holy Qur’an, and there are also frequent references to it in the compilations of the teachings and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, may God’s peace and blessings be upon him.

    Dhikr means remembering and commemorating God. It is a clear and explicit order of the Noble Quran.
    Two of the verses of the Holy Quran pertainig to dhikr are:
    So (in return for all that) always remember and make mention of Me (when service to Me is due), that I may remember and make mention of you (when judgment and recompense are due); and give thanks to Me, and do not be ungrateful to Me. (Al-Baqarah Surah, 2:152)

    O you who believe! When you meet a host in battle, stand firm and remember and mention God much, that you may triumph. (Al-Anfal Surah, 8:45)
    ZIKR is a practice of repeating the words which carry certain meanings, in the brain.
    The word meditation carries different meanings in different contexts.

    How the Funeral Prayer is Performed
    Muslim Funeral Guide
    The prayer over the deceased person takes the following form:
    •The funeral prayer has neither Adhaan nor lqamah.

    •The deceased is laid down on the ground with the face directed towards the Ka'ba.

    •Where the deceased is a male, the Imam would stand facing towards the head of the dead body, while, if the deceased is a woman the Imam would stand facing the middle part of the dead body. Meanwhile, the congregation would be standing behind him in rows.

    •The funeral prayer is performed with one standing only and has neither bows (Rukuus) nor prostration (Sujuuds).

    •The Imam begins the prayer by raising up his hands up to the lobes of his ears and comes up with the words of greatness i.e. "Allahu Akbar". The congregation would follow likewise.

    •Then, everybody including the Imam would recite "Al-Fatihah".

    •After completing the recitation of the Al-Fatihah, the Imam, once again comes up with the words of greatness i.e. "ALLAHU AKBAR", and the congregation would follow likewise. After this, the Imam and the congregation would recite for themselves in a low voice the supplication for the Prophets ABRAHAM and MUHAMMAD, (may peace and blessings be upon them), which is usually recited by the Muslims during their daily prayers in the second part of the At- Tashahud. The supplication goes as follows: "ALLAHUMMA SALLI 'ALAA MUHAMMADIN WA 'ALAA AALI MUHAMMADIN KAMA SALEYTA 'ALAA IBRAHIMA WA 'ALAA AALI IBRAHIMA, WABARIK 'ALAA MUHAMMADIN WA 'ALAA AALI MUHAMMADIN, KAMAA BARAKTA 'ALAA IBRAHIMA WA 'ALAA AALI IBRAHIMA INNAKA HA'MIDUN MAJIDUN", which means: "O Lord give peace and blessings to Muhammad and his family like You blessed Abraham and his family and shower Your blessings on Muhammad and his family like You showered on Abraham and his family in the two worlds, You are the Most praised, the Most wonderful".

    •The Imam would thereafter proclaim the words of greatness i.e. "ALLAHU AKRAR" for the third time and the congregation would follow likewise.

    •The Imam and the other members of the congregation would thereafter make the following private supplication for the deceased if he were an adult male Muslim. The supplication consists of prayer for self, for the deceased person and for the Muslims at large and it goes as follows: "ALLAHUMMA IGFIR LIH'AYINNA WA MAYITINAA, WA SHAHIDDINAA WA GHAA'IBINAA, WA SAGIIRINAA, WA KABIIRINA, WA DHAKARINAA WA UNTHANAA. ALLAHUMMA MAN AHYEYTAHU MINNAA FA'HYIHI 'ALAL ISLAM, WAMAN TAWAFEYTUHU MINA FATAWWAFAHU 'ALAL IIMAAN. ALLAHUMMA IGHFIR LAHU WAR-HAMHU,WA'AFIHI WA'AFU'ANHU, WA-KRIM NUZULAHU, WA - WA-SI'I MUDKHALAHU, WAGASILHU BIL-MAA-I WATHALAJI, WALBARAD, WANNAQIHI MINA-D-DUNUBI KAMA YUNAQA THOUBUL ABYADHU MINA DANAS, WABADIL-HU DAARAN KHEIRAN MIN DAARIHI, WAZOWJAN KHEIRAN MIN Z0WJIHI, WAD - KHIL HU JANNA TA, WA'AIDHU MIN'ADABIL-QABRI WA 'ADHABI-NAAR, WAAFSAH LAHU FII QABRIHI, WANAWAR LAHU FIIHI " which means: "O Allah forgive those of us who are still alive and those who have passed away, those present (at the congregation) and those who are absent, and our young and the elderly, our male and female lots. O Allah, whomever Thou wishes to keep alive from amongst us make him live according to Islam and whomever Thou wishes to die from amongst us, let him die in the state of being a believer (with faith). O Allah forgive him and have mercy upon him and keep him safe and sound and excuse him for his faults, and grant him respectable place in the heaven, and make his grave spacious, and wash him with water, snow and ice and purify him of all his sins like a piece of white cloth is cleared from dirt, and grant him a new house better than his (previous) house and a family better than his (previous) family and a wife better than his (previous) wife, and allow him to enter the paradise, and protect him from the torture of the grave and the hell-fire".

    •If the deceased is an adult woman, then the above supplication shall be repeated in full and the only change will be that the supplication shall be given a feminine reading in the Arabic language. Thus: "ALLAHUMMA IQFIR LIHAYINNA WA MAYITINAA, WA SHAHIDDINAA WA QAAIBINAA, WA SAQIIRINAA, WA KABIIRINA, WA DHAKARINAA WA UNTHANAA. ALLAHUMMA MAN AHYEYTAHU MINNA FAHYIHI ALAL ISLAMI, WAMAN TA WAFEYTUHU MINA FA TA WWAFAHU ALAL IIMAAN ....... ALLAHUMMA IQFIRLAHA WAR-HAMHA WA'AFIHA WAAFU ANHA WAAKRIM NUZULAHA, WA-WA-SI'I MUD- KHALAHA, WAQASILHA BIL-MAA'I WATHALAJI WALBARADI, WANNAQIHA MINA-D-DUNUBI KAMA YUNAQA THOUBUL ABYADHU MINA DANAS, WABADILAHA DAARAN KHEIRAN MIN DAARIHA, WAZOWJAN KHEIRAN MIN ZOWJIHA, WAD-KHILHA JANNATA, WA - AIDHA MIN-ADABIL-QABRI WA ADHABI-NAAR, WAAFSAH LAHA FII QABRIHA, WANAWAR LAHA FIIHI " which means: " O Allah forgive those of us who are still alive and those who have passed away, those present (at this congregation) and those who are absent, and our young and our elderly, our male and female lots. O Allah, whomever Thou wishes to keep alive from amongst us make him live according to Islam and whomever Thou wishes to die from amongst us, let him die in the state of being a believer (with faith) ...... O Allah forgave her and have mercy upon her and keep her safe and sound and excuse her for her faults and grant her respectable place in the heaven. And make her grave spacious and wash her with water, snow and ice. And purify her of all her sins as like a piece of white cloth is cleared from dirt and grant her a new house better than her (previous) house and a family better than her (previous) family and a husband better than her (previous) husband. And allow her to enter the paradise, and protect her from the torture of the grave and the hell-fire".

    •If the deceased is a boy, then the following supplication would be recited: "ALLAHUMMA IJ'ALHU DHUKHRAN LIWALIDEYHI WA FARADAN WA AJRAN MUJAABAN ALLAHUMMA THAOIL BIHI MAWAASIINAHUMA WA-AZZIM BIHI UJUURAHUMA WA ALHIQ-HU BISALIHI SALAFIL MU'MINIIN WAJALHU Fl KAFALAATI IBRAHIM WAQIHI BIRAHMATAKA 'ADHABAL JAHIIM" which means, "O Allah, make him forerunner of his parents and make him a reward and a treasure for them, make him one who will pleads for his parents and accept his pleadings. O Allah heavy him in their scales and grant them big reward and join him with the good believers and make him under the sponsorship of Abraham and protect him from the hell fire".

    •If the deceased is a girl, then the above supplication would be repeated in full and the only change would be that the supplication must be given a feminine reading in the Arabic language.

    •The Imam would thereafter, proclaim the words of greatness for the fourth time and the congregation would also say it after him. Immediately thereafter, the Imam turns his face only to the right side proclaiming the words of peace i.e. "ASSALAMU ALAYKUM WA - RAHMATULLAAH" to signify the completion of the prayer. The congregation would also follow likewise, and thus, the funeral prayer is completed.

    i.If a person joins the funeral prayer while the Imam is about to complete the same, then, the person would continue with the congregation until when the Imam concludes the prayer, then, the person would complete by himself whatever he missed of the prayer following the above procedure.

    ii.If a late-comer fears that the body of the deceased may be taken away before he completes the pray over him, then, such a person may only come up with the Words of greatness i.e. "ALLAHU AKBAR" four times without necessarily reciting the required supplications. The person thereafter, comes up with the words of peace, thereby, ending the prayer. iii.If a person is unable to pray over a deceased person before burial, then, it is permitted for him to pray over the deceased's grave.

    iv.If a person who is faraway is told of the death of another, then such a person may pray over the deceased person in absentia with the intention as though the deceased is actually before him/her. v.Funeral prayer is also recommended over a baby born dead after completing four months inside the mother's womb. However, no funeral prayer is required over a baby born dead before completing four months inside the mother's womb.
