Ruling on holding classes to teach people how to wash the dead

Question

What is the ruling on holding classes to teach people how to wash the dead?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

Teaching people how to wash the dead is good and is acceptable according to sharee’ah. There is nothing wrong with that, because some people do not know how to wash the dead properly, so there is a real need to know how to wash the dead.
