Attending funerals and offering the funeral prayer

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (May Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllahu 'alyhi wasallam) said  “Whoever attends a funeral until he offers the (funeral) prayer will have one QIRAAT (of reward) and whoever attends until the burial is done will have two QIRAATS.” It was said: “What are the two qiraats?” He (sallAllahu 'alyhi wasallam) said  “Like two great mountains!” 

[Narrated by al-Bukhaari; Muslim]
