Answer

(Fatwa: 1148/1088=B/1430)

 

There is no period of time fixed for burial, but it is better to bury as soon as possible; therefore as soon as the janazah is ready the salah should be performed. It is narrated in Sahih Muslim:

أسرعوا بالجنازۃ فإن تک صالحۃ فخیر تقدمونھا إلیہ، وإن تک غیر ذلک فشر تضعون عن رقابکم (صحیح مسلم 306)

(2) As per the Shariah, postmortem operation is an act of great sin, but it does not cause any pain to the dead as they are lifeless:

کسر عظم المسلم میتاً ککسرہ وھو حي، قال مالک تعني في الإثم ? وحاصلہ أن عظم المیت لہ حرمۃ مثل حرمۃ عظم الحي لکن لا حیاۃ فیہ (الأوجز 2:507)

(3) It is hoped that he was heading to any good thing, so he will get blessing. (Tabeerur Ruya, Urdu 293)
