Should we wash the body of a dead person who dies while performing Salah (Prayer) at the Masjid (mosque)?
You should wash the body of a dead person who dies while performing Salah as he is not different from others concerning washing and shrouding his body after death. The only person whose body is not to be washed or shrouded is the martyr who is killed while fighting in the cause of Allah. But we hope goodness for the person who dies while performing Salah as the last of his deeds is a righteous one. We ask Allah to forgive us and him. (Part No. 12; Page No. 28) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
