About the Book: Dr. Bilal Philips has written this book in order to serve the needs of English-speaking Muslims, using easy-to-understand explanations and instructions based strictly on the fundamental sources of Islam—the Qur’an and the Sunnah—to show what are and are not the correct practices of Islamic burials. No (English-speaking) Muslim’s library is complete without a copy of this book. This book paints a clear picture of how to deal with dying and death according to the authentic sunnah.

This indispensable reference directs the reader with authentic evidence, step-by-step through the process of implementing the way of the Prophet (PBUH) and his companions in handling this essential and inevitable issue. From the deathbed to the washing and shouding to the burial, this guide prepares its reader with the necessary how that will benefit both the dead and the living at the time of bereavement.
