Procedures during a funeral

Question ID: 30334

As-salaam u Alaikum

Please enlighten us as to the proper behaviour and procedures during a funeral.

What do we read/do when the mayyat comes to the house, during the duration it is kept and when the mayyat is leaving.
I ask this because i have witnessed the foll: zikr / naaths / salaami etc. being read.
Jazak Allah

When the Mayyit is brought to the house. The Maharams may be in the same room reading silently. No official congregational on its arrival or departure. No loud Zikr, or Naath or Salaami - all these are Bidat (innovation) - abstain from.
