Women Praying Namaz-e-Janazah in Graveyard

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakatuh

Respected Mufti Saab

In our Hanafi madhab are women allowed to join the Janazah Salah congregation at the cemetery; be it behind a screen or in another adjacent building.

What is the ruling for same for the other three madhabs.

 Was Salaam


الجواب وبالله التوفيق

If the namaz-e-janazah is being performed in the graveyard and women are present there, then it is permissible for them to join the namaz with (a row or more worth) distance. This ruling is still valid if there isn’t anything (such as a screen) in between them.

واللہ اعلم بالصواب
