Islamic Funeral

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org

Assalamualaikum,

Could you please let me know the name of a book which describes the funeral methods per Shahriah for both men and women? I have seen different ways some people make ghusl of the dead person so I would like to know what exactly are the things a Muslim should do after a person dies (man and woman): Starting from how soon a body needs to be buried, the Islamic way of ghusl, proper way to take the body to the graveyard and what needs to be done while burying the body in the grave.

Jazakallah

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

Please study احکام میت Ehkam e Mayyat by Dr. Muhammad Abdul Hai Saheb رحمہ اللہ in this regard. The study of بہشتی زیور Bahishti Zewar by Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi رحمہ اللہ will also be useful.
