Salat Al-Janazah

الله اكبر 
ٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ
ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ مَـٰلِكِ يَوۡمِ ٱلدِّينِ
إِيَّاكَ نَعۡبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسۡتَعِينُ
ٱهۡدِنَا ٱلصِّرَٲطَ ٱلۡمُسۡتَقِيمَ
صِرَٲطَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ غَيۡرِ ٱلۡمَغۡضُوبِ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَا ٱلضَّآلِّين
الله اكبر

اللهم صلى على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما صليت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم
إنك حميد مجيد اللهم بارك على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما باركت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم فى العالمين إنك حميد مجيد

لله اكبر

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِحَيِّنَا وَمَيِّتِنَا وَشَاهِدِنَا وَغَائِبِنَا
وَصَغِيرِنَا وَكَبِيرِنَا وَذَكَرِنَا وَأُنْثَانَا
اللَّهُمَّ مَنْ أَحْيَيْته مِنَّا فَأَحْيِهِ عَلَى الْإِسْلَامِ
وَمَنْ تَوَفَّيْته مِنَّا فَتَوَفَّهُ عَلَى الْإِيمَانِ

الله اكبر

English Translation

God is Great
In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful. Praise be to God, the Lord of the Universe, theCompassionate, the Merciful, Sovereign of the Day of Judgment! You alone we worship, and to You alone we turn for help. Guide us to the straight path, the path of those whom You have favored, not of those who have incurred Your wrath, nor o those who have gone astray.
God is Great
Allah, we ask You to raise the rank of Muhammad, and have mercy upon the Al (wives, Muslim kin, and pious Muslim followers) of Muhammad, as You raised the rank of Ibrahim, and the Al of Ibrahim. Verily, You are the One Who deserves to be praised and thanked, and the One Who is glorified. 0 Allah, we ask You to bless Muhammad, and the Al of Muhammad, as You blessed Ibrahim, and the Al of Ibrahim. Verily, You are the One Who deserves to be praised and thanked, and the One Who is glorified.
God is Great
Allah, grant forgiveness to our living and to our dead, and to those who are present and to those who are absent, and to our young and our old folk, and to our males andfemales. O Allah! whomsoever you grant to live, from among us, help him to live in Islam, and whom of us you cause to die, help him to die in faith. Grant especially this dead person your ease, rest, forgiveness and consent Allah, if he acted well, then increase for him his good action, and if he acted wrongly, then overlook his wrong actions. Grant him security, glad tidings, generosity and closeness to you. We seek Thy blessings, Thou art the most Merciful
God is Great
{to the Angels} May The Peace (from God) be upon you


The prayer is said silently while standing. There is no rukoo and no sajood. Follow the Imam's lead.
There are variations that are specific to gender or age. For example: for a baby, you make Dua for its parents rather than the baby itself, (if the salat is said at all.) For a lady the prayer is said to ask that "she" instead of "he." 
Please consult a scholar or Imam in your area for a better explanation.
There are several dua that are appropriate when making Salat- ul Janazah. If you have not yet memorized any other dua, such as dua al mayyat above, but you know the following, you may say it for the third portion of the prayer:

رَبَّنَا اتِنَا فِى الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِى
اْلاخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّار
بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمينَ 

Rabbana atina fi`d-dunya hasanatan wa fi`l-akhirati hasanatan wa qina adhaba`n-nar birahmatika ya arhama`r-rahimin
Our Lord! Give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of the fire. We seek Thy blessings, Thou art the most Merciful. If you know no arabic prayer, then you may make Dua in your own language, that the deceased as well as the living are granted mercy and their sins forgiven. Allah is the most merciful and compassionate.
