Q: My grandmother passed away a few days ago and after she passed, someone said that my grandfather is now a non-mahram for my grandmother and that he cannot look or touch her dead body. Is this correct? Because I have never heard this before that a wife and husband become non-mahrams after one of them dies. Also, can a husband give ghusal to his wife after she dies? Can a wife give ghusal to her husband after he dies?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
