Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
What is the ruling on holding classes to teach people how to wash the dead?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
Teaching people how to wash the dead is good and is acceptable according to sharee’ah. There is nothing wrong with that, because some people do not know how to wash the dead properly, so there is a real need to know how to wash the dead.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
