The Funeral Prayer of Prophet Muhammad
Taken from "The Life of Muhammad" by Muhammad Husayn Haykal
 

Prophet Muhammad had no Janazah

"The room was practically full when Abu Bakr and Umar entered the room and joined the Muslim in a funeral prayer for the Prophet. The prayer was performed without a leader. When it was over, Abu Bakr began to pray aloud, saying: "Peace, Mercy, and blessings of God be upon you, O Prophet of God. We witness that the Prophet of God and His apostle conveyed the message entrusted to him by his Lord and that he exerted himself and fought in His cause until God gave victory to His religion. We equally witness that the Prophet of God and His apostle fully [performed his promise and that he commanded us to worship none but God alone who has no associates." At the end of every phrase, the Muslims responded together, "Amen, Amen." When this prayer was complete, the men left and the women and children took turns taking a last look at the Prophet. One and all, every man, woman and child, emerged from that room torn with sorrow and crushed by a sense of bereavement for the loss of the Prophet of God., the Seal of His apostles. They were full of apprehension that some calamity might befall the religion of God in the future."
