What is Said When Placing the Body in the Grave (161)
When the Prophet would finish burying a dead person he would stand over him and say: 'Istaghfiroo li'akheekum wa saloo lahu attathbeeta fa'innahu 'al'ãna yus'alu (179)

(179) Ask forgiveness for your brother, and ask stability for him, for he is now being questioned.
