Question

What is the ruling on cleaning the teeth of the deceased with miswaak?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

I do not know of any basis for doing that, rather the deceased should be washed with wudoo’ then ghusl. If the miswaak is used when rinsing out his mouth there is nothing wrong with that, as in the case of the living.
