Inviolability of the body of a deceased Muslim

Q 3: Are the bodies of dead Muslims sanctified? Are these bodies inviolable and should not be violated?

A: It is authentically narrated from the Prophet (peace be upon him) in the two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (Al-Bukhari and Muslim) and other books of Hadith that he (peace be upon him) said: Your blood, your property, and your honor are as sacred to one another like the sanctity of this day of yours in this month of yours in this town of yours. This was said by the Prophet (peace be upon him) when he gave a khutbah (sermon) on the Day of Sacrifice (10th of Dhul-Hijjah) during the Farewell Hajj. The property and honor of Muslims are included in the generality of this Hadith. Furthermore, it was clarified while answering the first question that the sanctity of the bodies of dead Muslims is the same as their sanctity when they were alive.
