Ruling on placing death notices on the board in the mosque

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible to announce the death of someone who died in the village on a board that is placed in the mosque for that purpose?.

Praise be to Allaah.


Announcing a death in a manner that resembles the kind of death announcements that are forbidden is not permissible. As for announcing it among his relatives and acquaintances so that they can attend the funeral prayer for him and attend his burial, that is permissible, and does not come under the heading of the kind of death announcements that are forbidden, because when the Negus died in Abyssinia, the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) told the Muslims of his death and offered the funeral prayer for him. 


A board should not be placed in the mosque for the purpose of announcing deaths and the like, because the mosques were not built for that. End quote.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
