Al-Janaiz is the plural of janazah which is the deceased. It is said that Janazah is the deceased and Janazah is the stretcher he is carried on, so the first is higher and the second is lower. Whats intended by the book of Al-Janaiz is the book (or chapter) that has mentioned in it the rulings concerning the dead; from the washing of the body, the wrapping of the body, the prayer upon the boy, the carrying of the body and the burying of the body. It is mentioned after the book of the prayer because the prayer upon the dead person is the most important thing that is done with him and the most beneficial for him, so on the authority of ibn Abbas (Radi Allah Anhu) that he said:
“I heard the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) say: “There isn’t a man, Muslim, who dies and then Forty people perform his Janazah without associating any partners with Allah, except that he will be an intercession for them.”
