Welcome to Janathi Message

Ask The Imam Question and Answer

677 After the Ghusl of a deceased person are people allowed to touch the Janazah?
As for prayers, can prayers be said before / after Ghusl of Janazah?
Unless there is absolute necessity, the body of the deceased should remain untouched after the ritual bathing. The Ghusl has physically and spiritually cleaned the deceased and we should do what we can to ensure they leave this world in such a state.

As for the Janaza Prayer, this is performed after the Ghusl. General supplications in the form of Du’a can be done before and after the washing.
