Question From:

M. Warsito, Manisrenggo, Klaten



Not long ago I had a neighbor who bathe the bodies died, for me this is the first experience. Events bath followed by the deceased's wife and daughter's son. Among the bath there is the elder, call it Mr X. When will start the bath, she told me to read the prayer first, because I do not know do'anya then he led me melafadkan these prayers. Once deemed clean enough, Mr X end bath with mewudukan corpse. As for which I ask the nanny rubric Fatwa Religious Voice of Muhammadiyah is:

1. Benediction what is read when going to bathe the corpse?

2. After the corpse must be bathed whether diwudukan?


Civil pen, as long as our study there is no special prayer that the Holy Prophet dituntunkan when we will bathe the corpse. Therefore you just read bismillah to initiate all the good deeds. Regarding whether the body after bathing should diwudukan, we also found no proof for this. In the hadith narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim from Umm 'Atiyyah, not ending with diwudukan, but begins with washing the corpse of her right body and after that washed wudunya member. Hadith is as follows:

عَنْ أُمِّ عَطِيَّةَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَهُنَّ فِي غِسْلِ ابْنَتِهِ اِبْدَأْنَ بِمَيَامِنِهَا وَمَوَاضِعِ الْوُضُوءِ مِنْهَا [رواه البخاري ومسلم]


It means: "From Umm Atiyyah that the Messenger of Allah said to us when we bathe her daughter: Start with (wash) his right agencies and members of wudunya." [Muslim, juz III, page 48; al-Bukhari, juz II, page 72]
