Transporting the body of a dead Muslim from a non-Muslim country
Q 14: Some Muslims who live in
transport the bodies of their dead back to their homelands. Is this permissible?
Yes, it is permissible for them to transport their dead to cemeteries in Islamic countries, (Part No. 8; Page No. 452) and they may also have private cemeteries there where only Muslims are buried. They should move from non-Muslim countries to Muslim countries if they have the means to do so, except for those who have good knowledge of the Islamic Shari‘ah (law) and they are safe in themselves and their religion, and make efforts to spread Islam, hoping that people will be guided by them. It is permissible for them to stay for these reasons, and it may become obligatory to establish the inexcusable evidence and explain the Truth.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
