Fatwaa ID: 596

Assalaamualaikum. If a person has a share e uzr and needs to do wudhu for every salah. He is not able to lead regular salah. However, can that person lead the salaatul janazah salah?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

A ma’dhoor should not lead Janaazah Salaah.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
