Woman in haidh or nifaas coming near the mayyit

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I read in Bahishti Zewar that a woman with haidh or nifaas should not stay near the mayyit. What if someone exothermally close passes away? Should the lady not come near the mayyit?


A: She may view the mayyit and then sit at a slight distance from the mayyit.

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