Reward For Standing in First Saff for Fardh Salaah And Last For Janaaza Salaah

Question ID: 17828

Assalaamualaikum warahmatullah wabarakaatu,

Dear Mufti Saheb I hope Mufti Saheb is in good health and may Allaah grant Mufti Saheb good health and long life in serving deen. I would like to know what is the reason that in Fardh Salaah the reward is greater to stand in the first saff while in the Janaaza Salaah the reward is greater to stand in the last saff?
Please can Mufti Saheb explain this.

The Hadith encourages one to stand in the front row during the Fardh Salaat. It is best to be far away from the ‘corpse’ in Salaatul Janaaza. In normal Salaat there is ‘nothing’ in front which is ‘everything’.
In Salaatul Janaaza there is ‘something’ i.e. corpse that is not desirable.
