Question Is it prohibited (ḥarām) for a woman to attend/follow a funeral procession? What is the position also in relation to visiting the graves or graveyard? Answer There is no prohibition on either count. Neither is there a restriction that prevents women from either attending the funeral procession or visiting the graves. Reasoning Accompanying this question was a short-written submission which purported to outline a prohibition on both points.
