How to Pray Upon the Dead (155)
Abu Hurayrata said that the Messenger of Allah said: "Whoever attends the funeral procession till he offers the funeral prayer, for him there is [a reward equal to] one Qirat, and whoever accompanies it till burial, there is [a reward equal to] two Qirats." It was asked, "What are two Qirats?" He replied, "Like two huge mountains."
