Eating At The Funeral Home?

Recommended Posts

Q. Is it permissible for town people to partake of meals prepared at a
funeral house?


(Query published as received)


A. It is best to abstain from partaking of meals at the funeral home as in many cases, money is
used from the estate without prior consent from all the heirs. Furthermore, even if the money is legitimate, the practice of gathering and eating at the funeral home burdens the grieving family. It is from the teachings of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to take food for the grieving family, not to have
them provide food for guests.
