According to the books of Ibn sa'ad (at-tabqat الطبقات) ibn abd al-barr (al-Istya'ab fi ma'riftai al-Ashaab الاستيعاب في معرفة الأصحاب ) Ibn Hajar al-A'asqalany (al-Isabah fi tamyizi as-Sahabah الإصابة في تمييز الصحابة) ... she died 3 years before the hijra. At this time the prayer of Janazah was not known so she was buried in Jannatul Mualla cemetery, in Mecca.
Some scholars even say that the janazah prayer was unknown until after the Hijra to Medina!
Has the funeral prayer been offered on Hazrat Khadijeh (PBUH) and Hazrat Abu Talib (AS)? If not read why? Many rulings gradually became obligatory on Muslims; Therefore, the prayer for the dead became obligatory in Medina, that is, about three years after the death of Hazrat Abu Talib (AS) and Hazrat Khadijeh (AS). The two died in Mecca, and at that time there was no funeral prayer for the Prophet (PBUH) to recite for them. RK: Minya al-Ragheb fi Iman Abi Talib; Mohammad Reza Tabasi, boostan ketab; p.197
