Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 

1) It is permissible for a widow on the day of the funeral to sit in the same room where her deceased husband’s body is placed and to touch his body.

(Al-Bahrur Rā’iq, Vol.2, Pg.174, Rashidiyyah)[1]
(Badāius Sanāi’, vol.2, Pg.33-35, Deoband)
(Fatāwā Mahmudiyyah, Vol.5, Pg.492, Fārukiyyah)
