Ghusls of the Dead

Q: My question is about the method of ghusl of the dead, how many times it should be done and what things to be put with the corpse?

A: The body of a deceased person has to be given 3 ghusls:

a- with sidr water (water mixed with leaves of zilyphus lotus),
b- with camphor water and finally
c- with pure water.
After that thay apply hanut, shroud the corpse, say prayer on the dead and bury. It is mustaḥabb to put two fresh-cut sticks — it is preferred to be from a palm tree — with the corpse. It is also mustaḥabb to hold ceremonies to express one’s condolences to the dead’s relatives.
