Home Q&A Death Events 40 Days after Death

Q: Is there a hadith about having an event 40 days a person has passed away? I have read many things saying that it is not allowed. It's something that my family has always practiced.

A:
We have not come across any Hadith in this regards. Further, there is no such teaching in the Shariah regarding such a ceremony or event or practice.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
