Performing janaazah salaah in the musjid

Q: I read in your article crossing the bridge of death that it is impermissible for a Hanifee to perform janazah salaah in the masjid. What is the ruling of a Hanifee attending the janaza of a shafi person whose janaza is read inside the masjid?

A: Generally in our musjids there is a section that is marked to be out of the musjid. People call it the sahen. Perform the janaazah namaaz in that part.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
