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.
