  • Washing Dead Bodies

    Has anyone ever washed dead bodies?
    What was it like?
    I will wash my first dead body tommorow in shaa Allah
    I want the fear of Allah swt to sink into my heart
    And I surely believe this is the only way out

    I'd imagine dead bodies be cold. Like they are probably cold. They may be light or heavy, Allahu alam.

    Allahu alam.
    La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa 'ala kulli sha'in Qadir
    (there is no true god except Allah. He is One and He has no partner with Him; His is the sovereignty and His is the praise, and He is Omnipotent),'
    Do not say about Allah but Truth.

      asalaamu alaikum

      i washed the body of my mother and i am so glad that i did as it was like a final goodbye. everyone was advising me not to do it because of the post mortem, but the body was covered with a shroud and water was passed under the shroud without the shroud being moved out of place, it was all very dignified.

      i wasn't scared just satisfied that i could do something for my mother.

      i pray that Allah swt puts fear in my heart of him, also love, honour, and respect for him and hope in him. i love Allah swt more than i fear him because i know he is ar rahman, ar raheem and al ghafour. some of the attributes of Allah swt are: the acceptor of repentance, the compassionate, the loving, the forbearing one, the most gracious,the most merciful, the source of goodness, the most generous, the bestower. Allah swt loves us more than 70 mothers and his mercy is over his wrath.

      although we should fear Allah swt it is easier to do something to please him out of love for him than out of fear of him.

      wasalaam

            You aren't allowed to discuss the details etc..
            No it was a random brother
            He was only 33 years old
            His case was over
            But insaan is weak
            I wish I could wash a body every day
            But it's impossible

              So young subhanallah. No matter what age, we will all return to the creator.
              It must have served as a reminder when washing the body.

                Yes but we are forgetful and it's already ... Sadly forgotten
                That's why I wish I can wash every day
                Plus I had to leave early. So I couldn't wash him
                Only saw him .. & helped a tidy bit

                      Why astaghfirullah? We should always encourage others to pursue their ambitions.

                          Well he does seem to have a fixation about washing dead bodies. I'm merely giving him an advice.
                          Yeah it would be wrong since there would be bodies of both males and females. Maybe he should look for a Muslim morgue in his area that has gender segregation.
