Pearl of Wisdom

Imam 'Ali (AS) wrote to Malik al-Ashtar who was in the frontline in the battle in BaFa, 'Do not fight those who are not advancing, nor should one who retreats be killed, nor should one finish off a wounded. He who closes the door of his house is safe.'

Imam Ali ibn Hussain Zayn al-'Abidin [as]

Question : #260 Category: Death Issues
Subject: ghusal of the dead
Question: 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?
Answer: 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 ḥanūt, 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.
