smilla have a handle Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa he was at Mr. Allah and Avi Hill Karim Allah He of course Allah to attempt to slim or be shortly surgery where Sidley Emory Waterloo aka tembi lissoni of Cabo Kohli, my brothers and my sisters as Mr. alikum warahmatu, Ye robotic cattle, I hope that you are all doing well in sha Allah to Allah today is a continuation to our essential fit class
that we have every Sunday evening and hamdulillah we are continuing the chapter of the janessa the funeral prayer.
And, of course, you know, we can't go over everything that we usually cover in the past. But we started the next chapter last week, which is a funeral prayers, we looked at some of the things that we should do when a person passes away according to the son of the Prophet sallallahu it was something which should be done. Also what's permissible for those who are present and others you know, covering the body with a garment closing the eyes and stuff like that, we looked at the reward of someone who loses a child or more than a child and also some of the things that we should not do when someone passes away so things that we should refrain from doing for example weeping or you
know, crying excessively, and so on.
Today, we're going to continue with what must be done for the deceased so the things that we have to do for the person who passes away
in preparation to actually bury them
try to drink more water stay hydrated, it's hot out. Alright, so
the relatives or the relatives of the person who passed away the deceased person or the friends or community members, whoever it is, that's going to take responsibility and looking after this part of the person's life because the ginoza the funeral is still part of that person's life in the sense that that person is returning to a loss of pedowitz Adam we have a responsibility to make sure that that person returns to Allah in the way that is
you know, recommended and prescribed I should say upon us through the some of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I was not able to properly set myself up today because I was at the masjid and the internet connection was not the greatest
and just give me a second I need to plug my one of my phones and I'm gonna have to plug the other one in I'm sure but let's just try and get through this class with this inshallah
problems in the technical world. There we go. Charging All right.
Okay. So the the relatives or the community members must look after for things when a person passes away. The first is washing the body of the deceased person, okay? Secondly, shrouding the body covering the body. Thirdly, praying for the person. And lastly, burying that person and you know, putting the body into the ground and burying them. So we're going to start with the first one which is washing the deceased person. The obligation to wash the deceased person
is found in numerous Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Of course,
will we'll take two examples of that. The first is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about someone who was a pilgrim who went to perform the Hajj, who died when his animal threw him off of him. So he was writing his animal and his animal threw him off and he died from that injury. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said wash him with water and lotus leaves, okay. So that is one of the evidences that we use are a delila proof and evidence from the Sunnah of washing the body of the deceased person. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said wash them with water and with lotus leaves. The second example that we'll take is that of the daughter of the Prophet salallahu
alayhi wa sallam when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stated about his daughter Zina Viola and her wash her three five or seven times okay and Dave continues to wash her three five or seven times. So what is the description of the vessel or washing the body of the deceased? What is the description? What do we what are we supposed to do? What can we learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet sent along to us? Mmm.
Well, we'll go through the details of it later, but we'll just look at what we need to do what we need to cover. Oh my alpha, viola her and her narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the women who are watching
The body of his daughter Zeno, I don't think
start with her right side and the places of ablution of her body. So start with the right side, and do the places of the the parts of the body, the limbs that we usually watch, let's start with the right side and right, the left side. And then we also do the face, start with the right side, right, make sure you go from this side, and so on and so forth, you basically are going to watch the parts of the body, the arm, and the right arm, and then the foot on the right side, and so on and so forth. So we start with the with the right side, and cover all the parts of
ablution. Hopefully, yeah, it'll be a lot. I also said, the profits on the long end USM came to us while we were watching his daughter, and he said, wash her three, five or more times, as you see fit.
with water, lotus leaves, and make the last one with camphor, or with some camphor. and inform me when you have finished. When we finished, we informed him and he gave us his long waist cloth, right that he would wear around his waist, basically his ease out or his monkey, right that you would wear on the bottom part. And he said, wrap her body in it, wrap her body in it, right. So he gave that long part that you know we would use
or a sarong in Malaysia, right, we use that as well. In many countries, it's basically something that you use to wrap around your waist, right to cover the bottom part of your body. And then they would wear something over the top part of their body. So he removed that, or he gave them that to use to cover the body of his daughter some of bungler it he was sending them. And we see in this heavy that he mentions, you know washing her three, five or more times, right, and we saw in the previous Heidi three, five or seven times.
And he also mentioned some a long ladder, you ascend them to begin by washing with water, and then to also use some lotus leaves, and then to also use some kemfer. Okay.
And then to cover the body to shroud the body, mildly above the elbow, and has also said, We braided the head of her hair into three plots. So three braids, right. In another narration, we braided her hair into three plots and put it towards the back of her head. Okay, so they braided her hair and put it behind her head, who should perform the hosel of the deceased person? So Can anyone just wash the body of the person who passes away? Or you know who exactly has the right to do that? And who can perform that? So first off, the one who has knowledge of the Sunnah of the prophet SAW no longer any usnm with regards to the hosel washing the body is the one who technically should perform the
hosel. So we're looking for someone who has the knowledge of doing it first. It's not just like, Oh, I'm, you know, I'm the the brother of my brother. And you know, I'm going to do it. But if you don't know how to do it, then what are you going to do? Alright, so someone who knows how to do it has more right over someone who doesn't know how to do it. And that's obvious because if someone doesn't know how to do it, you fill the room with a few people that don't know how to do it, then what's the point? Right?
So the one who has knowledge of the Son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with regards to washing the body performing the hosel of the body of the janessa is, you know, the person that we should look towards first and foremost, with regards to performing that, especially if it's a relative of the person who had passed away.
Those who took the responsibility of washing the body of the profits on a longer alley, he was standing where his family members and from amongst them was it it'll be a long run. And it it'll be a long run said I watched the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I expected to find what one finds among the deceased. But I did not notice I think, as in it was a body that had no soul left in it. Right. So the body of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was the body of a deceased person. And he says of your lover, I'm Allie. Viola. And he said, I watched the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and expected to find what you would find on a deceased person.
Right, but I didn't even notice it. He was busy with it. And you know, he was caught up in doing what he needed to do. And he then continues and says he was in a good state, both alive and dead. As in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his body was in a good condition when he was alive in this life as well as after he had passed away.
Men should wash the body
Have males and women should wash the bodies of the females, right? So obviously, you would have the men washing the men and the women washing the women.
The exception to this though, is that of the spouse right? So a spouse can take part in washing their spouses body. And that is because they had, you know, right over that person and they spent, you know, time with that person in this life. They obviously are mom to each other, but also the fact that they, you know, were intimate with one another and seeing the body of the other person is not something that comes as a surprise or a shock to them. So, that is, you know, someone that is permitted, the spouse is permitted to wash the body of their spouse, to show the love and hurt said, If I had a chance to do it again, as if, if I was given the opportunity at the time to wash the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she says, If I had a chance to do it again, none except the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have watched him. Look at that statement.
And this is an authentic hadith, found in
summon even merger,
recorded by Abu Dawood and even magic.
So I shall be along, says if I have the opportunity to do it again, as in go through the funeral of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam she says, none except the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have washed him, right? Is that
a gene that shows us that it is permissible for a spouse to watch the body of their spouse.
I shuffle the lover and her also said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned and came to me from a funeral at the book, the cemetery. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was out at the cemetery at the book fair, he attended a funeral. And he was on his way back. And he came home to show the logo and her after the funeral had ended. And he comes to her. And I showed her the logo and says, I had a headache. So she had a headache that day. And she said to the profits a little longer, and he was sending them all in my head. She's basically stating a fact that my head is hurting. I have a headache today. And he replied, No, in fact, Oh, my head.
So had a long look at the profits on the one that he was sending out. She says, All my head is hurting and the profits and along if someone says, No, my head is hurting.
And then he said, what would it harm you? Like, what harm would there be to you? If you were to die before me? And I would then wash you shroud you pray over you and bury you. Look at the profits in the long run. He was send them, you know, I
actually had a headache that day. And he comes home. And she says all my head. And he comes from a funeral. And he's like, no. Basically what he means here is I've been thinking a lot. I've been thinking like, how difficult would it be for me? If I pass away? before? Sorry, if you pass away before me, right, if the longer I have passes away before the profits, the longer it will send them how difficult that would be for him like his head is hurting thinking of that scenario. Like oh, what would I do? I would have to you know, he says I would then have to wash you, I would have to shroud you, I would have to pray over you and I would have to bury you. My head is hurting just
thinking of that. And so some have a lot of you know that's
it's just an amazing thing to think of really, how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so connected to
it is not sanctioned or it is not part of the deen to wash a martyr who has died on the battlefield. Okay, so any one of the companions or the soldiers that fought with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Jabir Allah and said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said bury them with their blood that was on the day of or hood and he did not have them washed right it was on day four hood and he did not have those however washed that is not the case with all of this however though, because the profits on one line either some upgrade the janessa hamzat Aviva and some of the other martyrs of the Battle of art. Okay, so he prayed the prayer of some of them and try
Some of them he just said, bury them. Right. And that's not to show that those who were buried are lesser in value or lesser in status. That is an indication to us that there is no absolute need to pray the genesis of someone who's considered a shade.
So this is that's one part of it. And also we were talking about washing, right? That is not something that must be done washing the body of the martyr. Shahid, right. So, as we see in the Heidi's bury them with their blood, as in, they were martyred in the battlefield. And that was on the day of our hug. And in the Prophet sallallahu. It was, some of them did not have them washed, right, they were just buried.
Now the shroud covering the body.
The conclusion that it's an obligation within the deen is derived from the command of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, who said about the pilgrim, as we learned previously, who was basically thrown off of his animal while writing him, or writing the animal, he was thrown off and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said wash him with water and lotus leaves
and shroud him into garments, I was going to have a coffee, and then have the chance after also to have a coffee, so I'm feeling sleepy.
So he said, wash him with water and lotus leaves and shroud him into garments, okay, the shroud or its pieces, sorry, we'll talk about the amount in a bit in sha Allah. But in that Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said wash with water and lotus leaves. And in two garments, the shrout, or its price as in purchasing the shroud should come from the wealth of the person who actually passed away the deceased person. So whatever wealth that person has, let's say they left behind, it should come from that, even if the, the person didn't leave anything behind to inherit, so that person did not leave any inheritance or any physical wealth, we can take from the clothing
of that person, okay, so we take from their clothing and we use that to shroud that person and you know, cover their body before we perform the janaza prayer.
Above, in a lot of the above, unsaid, we emigrated with the Prophet sallallahu, I think he was sending them seeking the pleasure of Allah. Our reward was with Allah.
Some of us passed away without consuming any of his reward in this world, right, some of us passed away without consuming any of this reward in this room. Those included Mossad, even our mate
on the other hand, some of us received our rewards in this world. So he says some of us ended up receiving our reward from us of having to add it in this life.
He has in Musab even our mayor was killed in the Battle of boyhood. And he could find, we could find nothing of his,
you know, belongings to shroud him in,
except for his cloak that he was wearing. When we pulled it over his head, as in, pulled it up to cover his head. So remember, a cloak rests on your shoulders. So when they pulled it up to cover his head, right after, just before they bury him. He says when we pulled it up to cover his head, his feet became bear. And when we wanted to pull it down to cover his feet, his head would become there. So basically, his cloak was just long enough to go down to you know, around his shin area. So when we would raise it higher to cover his head, his legs and his feet would be exposed, and when we would pull it lower to cover his legs and his feet, his head became exposed.
Accordingly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to cover his head with the cloak and to cover his feet with a special type of pleasant smelling grass, okay, so it's like grass, or you know, a bush or shrub that grows on the ground, to cover his feet or his legs, the bottom part of his body with that grass so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave them command to pull the shroud. The cloak that they were using as a shroud on Mousavi been are made to cover his head and to cover the
feets in his legs with
some grass, okay.
So it is a must at the shroud to be a garment that covers all of the body, right, so the body must be covered. If all that a person can find is a shorter garment that cannot cover the entire body of that person who passed away, then we should cover their head with the garment and cover the bottom part with, you know, some grass over the feet, as we see in the Hadeeth of
covering and the shrouding of information.
What is recommended for the shroud. Okay, so we'll look at that right now what is recommended for the shroud.
First of all, the color of the shroud in the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we see that the color of the shroud is typically white. So it is a white cloth as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, wear your clothing.
Sorry, wear your clothing, the white clothing, for it is the best of your clothing. And I know I'm wearing black today, right but I'm wearing my white hat. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said wear your clothing, the white clothing, for it is the best of your clothing. So the best of your clothing is that which is white in color. And he also said it continues in the Hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said and shroud your deceased in it. Right those from amongst you who have passed away, shroud them in the white clothing as well. So make sure that the garment that they're using is white right that is best. The second thing that is recommended for the
shroud is that the shroud should consist of three garments. So it should be three pieces and we see this commonly in the some of the profits of the longer I do something with this a habit of the lower end home
shall be longer now stated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was shrouded in three white Yemeni pieces of cotton cloth from sexual which is a city in Yemen. And none of which was an undergarment or a turban. So those pieces of cloth were not undergarments or clothing, that the profits that along with some more under his clothing, they were, you know, pieces of cloth that he got from Yemen, right, and the profits on a lot of it and the some of them, you know, commonly received, or, you know, as mentioned that you received clothing and garments from there.
And it was not a piece of his turban that was used to cover him. Thirdly, from the things that are recommended, related to the shroud is, if possible, one of the garments should have a striped pattern. So a pattern to it basically, right? Basically, something that's something that has a little bit of definition, you know, shrouding the body of the person that is about to be placed into the ground, job or the law and narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, if one of you dies, and if it can be found, let him be shrouded in a striped garment.
Interesting that the person be shrouded in a striped garment, prayer for the deceased person.
Prayer for the deceased person, also known as the janaza prayer is a communal obligation.
It's a photo of keitha
as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has commanded it in many Hadees right as a prayer that if some people pray it is sufficient for the rest of the community. So not everyone has to come. Right It is not something that is compulsory upon every single person. If some people are praying to gin as a prayer then it is sufficient for older people as in the obligation has been carried out not everyone needs to come. But some people should come to pray the janaza prayer upon that person
is aid. Even Holly the journey narrative that a man from among the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died on the day of favor?
That was mentioned to the Prophet sallallahu either who ascended them and he said, Pray for your companion. But the people's expressions changed upon hearing that. Pray for him. He died at Faber and Faber the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said your companion misappropriated something from the booty. Something of the of the booty the gains of the battle was taken from him or by him.
That was not actually supposed to be taken.
So they have the Obama and said we searched his belongings and found some beads of the Jews that were not even worth to give him. So it was something that was taken that was not even worth to download. It was very small and insignificant. He should not have taken it but still the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded that his Jenna's a prayer be prayed.
The larger congregation
is better and more beneficial for the deceased person. So the prophets on a longer idea he was sending them said, No deceased
is prayed for by a group of Muslims that reach 100 in number. So a person who's having their jenessa and there's 100 people that are praying the janaza prayer. He says some of them were it was some of them, all of them interceding for him. That prayer is basically all these people praying for him. They're interceding. They're asking Allah Subhana, which Allah to forgive this person that passed away, except that he will be interceded for by the prophets of Allah.
And so, if a person's done as a prayer has 100 people or more praying at the gym as a showing that there's a large number of people praying, then that person will also have the intercession of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said no Muslim dies and 40 men who do not associate anything with Allah as a partner, right so they do not commit ship 40 people who are not from the machete comb they are believers in a lesson which added pray the janazah prayer of a person, they stand for his funeral prayer, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says accepted that Allah will make them intercede for him as in
a low except for those people there who are out for the deceased person. And
the next part is that it is preferred that they form three rows behind that mmm regardless of how small they are in number.
So modified and he has any narrated from Melek even have a euro that the messenger of a loss of the longer it he was sending them said no Muslim dies and is prayed for
by three rows of Muslims, except that forgiveness for him is mandated. And in the wording in Arabic it's translated as accept that is mandated as in forgiveness is upon that person, that person will be forgiven inshallah. Tad
so we learned in this Hadeeth that the rows should be three in number, okay, so there should be three rows. However, sometimes due to space in our massage, and because we don't pray outside in the open, we usually tend to pray within the masjid. And we are restricted by the walls of the masjid. So it's advised that we pray in odd numbers. So either you know three or more, and we'll look into you know the numbers in different ways. You do have a different number there. However, we'll move forward and learn about the
amount of people that we can pray the jenessa for, can we pray the janazah prayer for just one person at a time? Or can we pray for multiple people at the same time? So in a normal circumstance, or in the general case,
each individual, you know receives their own gym as a prayer. Okay, so if someone passes away, they have their agenda as a prayer. However, it is permissible islamically to perform the prayer for more than one person at a time. And usually in massage, this is what you'll find being done. For the sake of time. Also, because it is permissible, right?
If there are more people
who passed away as in multiple people who passed away, and we're having their genetic, the same on the same day at the same time, then we will do their genetic prayers altogether. So one prayer for all of the people who passed away and this is something that is permissible, like we'll see. And it does not diminish your takeaway from the prayer of each person. We shouldn't think like, Oh, this is a prayer of my life.
The one that is shared with someone else, right? It's a janaza prayer, we pray the agenda as a prayer, you'll see this happening in mcca. Sometimes it's 10 1520 bodies of people who passed away during the time of HUD, for example, and they will pray one as a prayer for all of them men and women and children altogether.
In such a case, when there are more people that have passed away, and we're going to pray a prayer for multiple people, the deceased males, the men of those who passed away, are to be placed closest to the emails where the man is standing, you will have like one coffin, another coffin of another men and another men, for example. And then you will place the coffins of the women, if there are any women further from the email. So you'll place those in front, okay, so the men will be for example, I'm the email you will have a coffin here another one of the men and another men, and then for example, a woman so you'll have and they will be in the same same direction. So another woman,
right, and my fingers don't go that way. Right. But you know, the women will be for this so the women will be furthest from the men and the men will be closest the women will be closer to the Qibla than the men. Okay, that's the way we describe it in the deen is that the women are to be placed closer to the Qibla and the men are to be placed closer to the Imam.
Nothing stated in the aroma of the lava angle not prayed over nine deceased people at once. He put the males closest to the Imam and then the women further in front towards the fibula, putting them all into a parallel row.
The funeral prayer of
the daughter of Allie and the wife of Rama ignore hubbub and her son Zaid was performed all together. I'll say that again.
The funeral prayer of
the daughter of Annie
and the wife of Rama, Bob and her son, Zaid was performed together the Imam on that day it was Saturday evening us and in the congregation were even Ibis of what Eva Abu Salah read, and Abu Qatada. All of them were standing in the gym.
Okay. The boy was placed immediately in front of the Imam.
One men objected to that. Right? There's always going to be someone who's going to speak up, right? So one men objected to that. I said, as in nerfed
What is this practice?
They said, as in a vulgar Eva even Ibis of Lucy. And Abu Qatada. All of them said, it is the sun. So it is the sun not to place them in that order as in the men closest to the Imam and the women closest to the fibula.
Where should the funeral prayer be helped? Can it be prayed inside of the building inside of the mustard or not? It is permissible to perform the funeral prayer inside of the mustard, as we see in this hadith about the lover and her or the statement of the law around her. She said, When sad, even cos died, the prophets wives requested that his prayer be in the mosque so that they could pray for him.
The people did so and had the funeral in the front of their apartments adjoining the mustard, right. So basically in the janessa was held in the mustard. And they prayed for him. He was taken out through the door of the funeral prayers, but but the
to his final resting place when the news of his reach the people. When the news of this incident had reached the people. They found it blameworthy. They said a funeral prayer should not be taken into the mosque. So they were objecting to the fact that the janazah was being prayed in the mustard. When this reached when the knowledge of this complaint had reached out a shout out the lover and she said Why are the people so quick to blame concerning matters or to put blame concerning matters that they are not even knowledgeable about?
It sounds like you know sounds like present day Muslim community like something happens immediately people start arguing and I show the law and has like what's wrong with these people? Why are they so quick to like jump and blame people for something they don't even know about? And so how we see this happening?
You know, quite often sometimes someone just starts arguing and saying things about the dean and they have no knowledge about it. And then the people that are knowledgeable sitting there going, Wow, what's wrong with you people? Ask me right. And so I said what the alumna she says, they blame us for bringing the funeral prayer into the mosque. And while the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not pray over Suhail, even valuable, except in the mosque,
don't be alone. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed the genesis of prayer,
generally outside but at times inside of the masjid showing that it is permissible to do so.
So it is preferable to pray the janessa prayer outside because commonly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would pray the jinn as a prayer outside of the masjid
in a place that was specifically designated for the funeral prayers, and not in the cemetery. And that was the common practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So it is not, as I just mentioned very briefly, a couple seconds ago, it's not actually permitted in the dean to perform the prayer, the janaza prayer at the cemetery in the midst of the grapes, okay, it's not something that is encouraged to do the janazah prayer should be outside of the cemetery. And that's mainly because it is discouraged within the deen to praise Allah to pray a prayer in the cemetery because it may give that impression that first of all, because the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't encourage it, but it may give may also give the impression that Muslims are praying to the dead, right.
So unless the love are narrated, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade the performance of the funeral prayer amidst the graves, okay, among the graves within the rows of the graves.
Now, a slight addition to this, and I'll mention it because of COVID-19, we are praying our funeral prayers upon those who have passed away of COVID-19 at the cemetery, right, we're not bringing them to the massage that goes against the regulations. And so the
guidelines that have been given to us here in Ontario in our province, and only talk about our province, is that the body is taken to the cemetery. There's no Listen, it's not washed, it is insane. And remember, we said that the bodies of the martyrs, right, they don't need to be washed. And also because it's a pandemic, and there is a illness that could spread to those who washed the body. So there's a harm to those who are live there as well.
Therefore, the body of the deceased person is put into, and this is specifically for someone who passed away of COVID-19 is specifically here in our province, is put into a sealed, you know,
sort of vague, and then that is placed into the coffin, right and closed off and brought to the cemetery. And we will not do the hosel it will be brought to the cemetery, we will, you know, the cemetery officials will be the ones to bring the body out to the grave and place it there. And then they will step back and move away, then we are permitted to go forth at the time when we were doing you know, some of these, and just recently it was increased to 50 people that are allowed to gather at the cemetery. But prior to that, during the the height of the pandemic, it was 10 people maximum that were allowed at the cemetery to pray the generous. So we prayed 10 people
at the cemetery, including the Imam, and then we'd have to go sit in our cars and then they would bury the body. And then after the body is completely buried by the cemetery officials, then the Muslims can come back out to the grave.
And so because of the pandemic, we were permitting, and had no choice but to pray the gin as a prayer in there at the cemetery but we did have in our cemeteries most of the time you know, we requested that the bodies be placed in an area where we can stand openly and not amongst other graves where there's no place for people to stand in rows. Remember we had to also observe physical distancing of six feet and so on.
Where should the mm stent? This will be the last part that will take in childbirth Okay, where should the mm stand? have already been stated I saw anessa been Malik it'll be longer and perform a funeral prayer for a male for a men
