The deceased’s gold tooth

A: There is no sin on the part of a deceased person who died and was buried with the gold teeth still put in the mouth. However, if it is possible for a relative to extract the gold teeth before burying the deceased person and without causing the body harm, they should do so. If the body has already been buried, it should not be exhumed to extract the teeth. Imam Ahmad said, about the dead person whose teeth were filled with gold, “If they can be extracted without making other teeth fall out, they should be pulled out. If it is to be feared that other teeth may be removed by extracting the gold tooth, they should be left.”May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
