Guidance from The Prophet (saws)

Hadrat Abu Hurairah (r.a.) reported: The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "Whoever follows the funeral procession and offers the funeral prayer for it, will get a reward equal to one Qirat, and whoever attends it till burial, will get a reward equal to two Qirat.'' It was asked, "What are two Qirat?'' He (PBUH) replied, "Equal to two huge mountains.''

Commentary:

The Messenger of Allah (saws) encouraged the believers to attend the burial of their believing brethren stating that one who follows the funeral and offers the prayer would get a reward as huge as a mountain….and if one follows the burial, offers the funeral prayer, and waits till the deceased is buried in the grave one would be entitled to earn a reward of two huge mountains.
