From the last summer sort of load earlier some of you want
to the danger law we'll start Babel kittens and is the book ons and as are the book on funerals are in danger step 10 is the Pro. So we should probably defer to him.
But we will. We'll talk about the device today we'll talk about Washington only.
may not we may not be able to talk about shrouding and barium and all of that we'll just talk about washing. But before we talk about washing we'll start with before death upon this and then washing shrouding prayer barrier graves, all of this will come in Sala in the next few sessions we are hoping to finish the entire book kita Belgian as well within the month of March
you know next time we'll talk about shouting and prayer and then Barry and then graves.
But today we will start from the very big
mama Kodama, Rahim Allah Allah here, because this is a very abbreviated book that not address you know, what needs to be done prior to this.
But in the other Hanbury books and and the other books have
been other books in general that address this particular topic of fact, you will find a discussion
of other issues prior to this one of them is
seeking treatment, one of them is visiting the sick and one of them is canteen, which is located on otacon de la la lottery mind the dying person to say Allah Allah Allah, some of these issues have not been mentioned or these issues have not been mentioned by them. I have no Kodama here because once again, it is a matter it's a short matter.
But they may be worth mentioning before we start to talk about washing and before we start talking about what we need to do upon this, one of the things that are peculiar to the Hon Betty method is that we say that, you know, seeking treatment is suboptimal, it is better not to seek treatment for your disease.
And that is a position that has been reported for many Mamma
mia lavonne, who
was recruited that we are basically
not seeking treatment is preferred a superior according to the mmm method.
This this position I just can't agree with this position because of several reasons.
One of them is the Hadith of the Prophet Sal Salaam to Tao, Allah seek treatment to all servants of Allah.
He has in the hanbali meth lab, it is said that this is a matter of sad, this is for counseling this, this command does not mean obligation it is for counseling and it may be for counseling, it may be for counseling, but in certain cases it cannot be for counseling. And even if it is for counseling, you you don't say that it is superior to not seek treatment at least if this is for counseling and recommendation. We should say that seeking treatment is superior as Mr. hub
because it is not counter to tobacco the Mama was afraid mathematic not was afraid he was not afraid but he a mama had failed to that the mama tawakkol you know to have complete debacle complete reliance on Allah subhanho wa Taala would make you not seek treatment because you have capital Mamata, you have the prophet SAW Selim was the best of them with a period and he sought treatment for himself and for others of his Sahaba at one layer there are many use to prescribe use the you know,
use medications himself and prescribe them for his Sahaba and he was the best of them with Arcadian. So we might say here that with all respect m love.
We will not take that position of him or not. We'll take the position of the other scholars
that considered seeking treatment superior recommended now Could it be whadjuk sometimes it is well job, particularly like you know,
think of those
that are above the law may be a recommendation may be because certainly because it's kind of hard to say that when commands come in the within the context of
wherever the sort of affairs your worldly affairs
Such as treatment and things of that nature, the command is not for obligation, but simply for recommendation. So,
but the Prophet said, blah, blah, blah, there are there should be no harm or reciprocation of harm. Now, if you have diabetes, and you refuse to take your insulin, what's going to happen to you,
you will get really sick, you will get extremely sick, and then you will die. You know, diabetes, if you have diabetes, you refuse to take your insulin
based on, you know, science based on, you know, expert, opinion and science, which is what we go by, certainly, if Allah wants you to live, you live, yeah, sometimes we will say, should we take the you know, life support off, should we turn the machine off, we would be getting the, you know, the person what if a man wants you to live you will live, if Allah did not want Abraham to burn and by the fire burning will survive the fire and this mighty one survived the life and allies, okay capable over all things. But within our calculations, as human beings, if you don't take insulin, when you have diabetes, you will get sicker and sicker and sicker and then you will start to lose
your eyesight, your kidneys will failure, liver problems, he then you over time, you will just die.
Is this is this should should this be permissible? Should it be permissible for someone to say, No, I will not take insulin, and then this person will get sicker and sicker and sicker. And he will say, I can fast. And he will say well, I can pray? Because I can stand up? You know, is that
acceptable? You know, if we tell you? Why don't you take your insulin, and then you will be able to fast and pray and you will be able to go to work and you will be able to fend for your family and all of that stuff? Would it be permissible for that person to say that the agreement of the four demands, the agreement of the form of is that seeking treatment is
recommended? had the most, you know, and the management said it is inferior? It would not?
It would not? And it should not? Because that is counter to what, you know, what Islam is all about? In other words, what are their are is a legal Maxim may be their understanding of medical treatment, medical intervention was different, they did not have insulin, you know, the treatment is based on conjecture. And there are three times not solid facts, you know, it was not as effective, you know, certainly in 30 times the treatment was not as effective as it is an hour times should we be bound by, you know, their position and say, you know, no, I'm
not going to take treatment, I'm not going to take my insulin.
Or if you have like, TB or something, I'm not taking antibiotics. It doesn't make any sense. Is that clear? Does anyone disagree with this is really if someone disagrees, we want to have like the bait here.
visiting, visiting the sick, so visiting the SEC, you know, you know that you're the visiting the SEC is a great reward. Now, you'll find also in Hanbury books that visiting non Muslims is not permissible. You know, in some family books, particularly the books of that others generations, you'll find in chocolate mentality or a diet for instance, that was the non Muslims is not permissible. And so why is this? Why is this because there are three reports for permissible impermissible and report that is detailed, you know, permissible and sometimes impermissible, and other times, but when Mmm, not so the three reports for me. But one of the most, if not one of the
miraculous reports is that it is permissible. Someone said to him, you know, I have I know someone who is Christian, and he's gonna go visit them. And he said to him, yes, of course you could go visit him. The prophet SAW Salaam visited the Jewish boy.
So here is a report from him Allah, you know that where He justified his position by a like Hobbes traceable authentically to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam. And so it is a position that is detailed and justifiable and justified. The fact that you know, people of the latter generations
The infamous hub, the verifying scholars of the mazahub took a different position of a mama that made it the authorized position of the mouth hub should not make us bound by their choosing by their choice. You know, Mr. Mohammad, has three different positions. One position agrees with the other scholars, one position is justified. One position is substantiated by proofs from the Prophet sallallahu sallam. The prophet SAW seven visits with Abu Talib when he was about to die. When he was second about to die. He visited the Jewish boy, he visited our beloved Nova saluda, seven, one FFP. And when he was sick,
how can we add? How could we ignore all the evidence? Just because you know, this is the authorized position, authorize the view and the method. And I am really like, sort of without strict with Hubby, therefore, I only use the authorized views and my method.
And do you know better? Do you know, better than that booty? No, I don't know, better than booty.
And then someone will say, Well, do you know more than Mr. mathema? Do you know more about the processes other than the evidence and the leave, then? Mmm. No, I don't is therefore if Mr. Ahmed knows more than that, then you you then therefore you must ignore the fact that the Prophet visited the Jewish man that the Prophet visited that the Prophet You know, I've never even said Oh, you must also ignore the fact that the Sahaba, you know, made rupee on someone who's not Muslim, that evil high, you know, the Hadith, Abu Sayyaf about the man who got stung, and it was like a tribe that was particularly hostile, they refuse to host the Sahaba even though this is particularly hostile
conduct in Arabia, and then the the Sahaba still made Rokia on the cheek, their chief who got stung with the fact that her anthem the prophets are suddenly approved of the rokeya they made the raffia on a non Muslim person who's sick, not just visited him, they made rupee on him using good Fatiha and then I am supposed to say, well in Allah knows about the Prophet more than you and booty knows about Mr. Muhammad more than you, therefore you we're stuck here. Because, you know, you have to be really follow the authorize the view in here.
And that is where we're going. Because we like, you know, because because we have a very low level of education in every regard, whether it's religious or secular education or any form of education. So, we like to swing with a pendulum of extremism. So anti Methodism, strike them as have bism and keep on swinging back and forth and back and forth. Because extreme positions are desirable by people who have lack of sort of people who like to be extreme positions are known to build bonds of relationships between people, because people when they take extremes they become so attached to their extreme positions, and then bonds have no relation relationships, build among those people,
and then they start to become their own in the live in their own compartments, and defend their own positions. That does not make any sense. It just doesn't make sense. You know, here the idea that the army is is just is nothing, the army cannot
cannot look into any evidence cannot comprehend anything, that the army is just like a cow that the army should be follow you know, whoever holds the rope, you should just walk with
the idea of giving up your intellect to given up your mind completely to the statement of a safe or any man or scholar is an idea that is not conducive to any good
and we've we've tried anti method isn't it doesn't work it is not good those that have our, you know, the the greatest intellectual products in our legacy.
Committed work of scholars throughout generations transfiguration, transcendent transcends time transcends place and all of that great work anti muslim ism is bad, strict among Muslim a visit is just as bad. So there has to be admitted ground and we have to find a moderate position. Here. In this case, you will say to yourself, well that that someone other than iraq might say thing otherwise.
The scholars of the Imams of the other event have said otherwise. Then, then you have room to say, here you know, it seems that scholars of the other myth I have have a point here because it seems that the Prophet visited the say the Jewish boy seems that the Prophet was not loving away instead of what seems like the Prophet was the avatar, it seems that we don't have any proof that visiting the non Muslim when they're sick, is impermissible. So it looks like I can visit, you know, my Christian neighbor
when they are sick.
And it looks like the rest of the Imams are okay with trying, I can take this. And then if, if you don't find any one of the moms, you know, the 40 moms who upholds the opposite position that you think is substantiated and desirable, then then you will have to be careful, you have to our positions from outside of the four four mazahub must be mainstreamed by wise by widespread scholarly acceptance or collectivity had
otherwise they should not be be mainstreamed by minor students of knowledge. So a minor C, the students of knowledge should not be scavenging for, you know, the
legacy our heritage for positions or scanning our heritage.
Basically, to find a position here as the air that is outside of the four schools, and to start to propagate and mainstream it yourself. That's not good. You wait until there is widespread scholarly acceptance. We've given examples before about positions outside of the forums, outside of the form of that have that have widespread scholarly acceptance likeability in his position, Rahim Allah, about the three divorces counting as one,
three, divorce counting as one, the idea that all armies are the same, is not intelligent. It is not an intelligent idea. Because the army that's only two or three days from being a Mr. head is not like the army, who basically does not know
anything about anything. There are there are armies who don't know anything about anything. And there are armies who are only two nights from Vietnam which that they are not the same people you know, and we can treat them
you know, similarly they are different, is not clear, so you could visit anyone who is sick, whether they are
Muslim or not. Now, the third point that we wanted to discuss as the point of 13 Latino male tag from de la la la, which means reminds you're buying one's motorhome here does not mean you're dead ones, it means you're buying ones with Latino mo Tacoma hella
remind you're buying ones up later heilala mind you're buying ones of
the penis disait in front of them so that they can remember to say it or you could instruct them and structure your buying wants to say I have a lot and structure dying once they said the best way you could instruct them to say like the last to save in front of them so that you don't, you know, certainly you want to remind them of writing there was a year, but you're going to visit someone and it isn't the math hub that whether the illness is Terminal Terminal or not. If you go visit someone remind them to write there was a year. But let's say this is someone that you are not really familiar with. It is like a friend. It's like someone that and you go to visit them they have they
just caught the flu, and you go visit them and tell them you know what, I think you should try it your way. It's not particularly
kind or anything at this point.
In fact, if you do it when they're not sick, that would be much kinder, you just remind that every up remind all the people all the time writer will say, you know, the because it is not appropriate for a Muslim to
sleep two nights without writing his will say put having his will say underneath his belt, remind them but if someone is sick, you know someone got sick, you go visit them in the hospital, they got a stent in their heart and then everybody goes and tells them right here was a it was a I will say has not particularly helpful. So you have to use prudence, you have to use wisdom 13 you repeated three times according to them as have, but you don't have to be rough. When you say to them say that I have a law say let the law
just say it in front of them. They will remember it and they will say
now who is someone that you know, we're not
be offended, if you say to them, instruct them, you know?
affirmatively saying that I have the law say say if you're if you're sure that there will not be
particularly offended okay mmcf Rahim Allah Eman Kodama como la Seto eta, Pina moto ltf para moto.
But it's very hard to make it in the passive voice is that we get them out of it is that is ascertained home myba pioner. Home midata inna,
his eyes should be closed because the prophet SAW some of that disturb Osama when he went in, he
closed his eyes. Because we're, you know, if you die, your eyes could be open and may stay open. And that would look this finger that would be sort of a disfigured look, or this fingering. So you close the eyes, the first thing, you know, once you're deaf is ascertain, ascertain, ascertain how you ascertain that if there is any doubt they tell you Wait, wait from Rwanda wait like, like one day?
That's like, one
day time. So, you know, like half a day
or in some reports, if you're really doubtful, God is a copy we all have a copy of you could wait two days. basically have the doctors ascertain the person's death if you're unsure wait to ascertain the birth and the death can be ascertained by the limbs becoming very loose their wrists becoming very loose You know, this goes in you know the cheeks will go in and even the tip of the nose when
So, you wait until death is ascertained before you start the process
final rites. So, first thing you will do is to close the eyes the problems was on this Salama, what should the law here and should the law here means that his job should be tied into law is this the law here, this and this. So
you tie it your your wrap something around it
so that it is not, the mouth does not stay open. Because once again, we're what we're trying to do here is we're trying to honor our brother or sister. So if their eyes are open, that's disfiguring the close their eyes, the mouth is open but is disfiguring the close the mouth
and then buttoning him or how right
it means and a mirror or something else heavy, should be placed on his abdomen. The idea here is to avoid anything that may be this fingering and the abdomen could become distended after this. And that is disfiguring. So it was reported that as
instructed people to do this
to a boy who died to put like something heavy on their stomach so that the abdomen does not get the standard. If you have something better than a mirror or if you have like you know, like if there's a hospital or something that you have something wrapped around the abdomen so that it does not get distended then you do this the purpose here is that the abdomen does not get the standard. Now after you have done this, after you're done these basic things, you know clothes, clothes, and put something on the abdomen so that it does not give the standard what you need to do is to cover from here, you know, head to toe, cover the entire body from head to toe, because that was done to the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he died, and then you
you can uncover certainly and it was also reported by Buhari that when Abu Bakr walked in, after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had died, he
covered his head and he kissed them. So people, family members
He could uncover. So, covering the profit was almost covered from head to toe this was important about Buhari and Muslim, you do this, that is to honor the deceased.
Like with a sheet, like you grabbed like a clean sheet and then you cover the deceased person from head to toe, now people come in people, relatives, you know, friends, close friends and so on, they come in, they find the deceased covered, they want to see him or her so they can uncover. And certainly the Hermia issue is still applicable here. It's not that they are that that Mahamaya issue is not applicable, people who are not meant to look,
you know, so the hour of the deceased must be honored, you know, must be covered. And their privacy must be honored. People who are not from the immediate game that are Muharram are not supposed to look at, you know, the hour that non Muharram should not look at, but close family members and friends, they may uncover the head. And if they also want the case that they're deceased relative, they may do this, as a Buhari reports from Abu Bakr, that he had done this to the Prophet sallallahu yourself.
so covering and uncovering for the family members and friends also, I mean, if it is a man also like anyone can uncover a woman, any woman can, if it's a man, or woman, any woman can uncover
then as your origin as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam 740 by Bihari, and Muslim as the origin as which means pacing with either the printer or the process, speed of the process
of the giraffes, that has basically all the final rites everything that will be done to the deceased until the deceased is buried. So we want to speed up the whole process until the deceased is buried. Now, should we wait for someone to come from overseas
origin should we wait for someone to come from a different state? Yes, we should wait. If that person is a close relative, if there is no fear for the body to you know, to go into the process of decay, we can keep the body it is not too warm, the body could be kept. You know that person's like son is coming in. from overseas bam, you know the person's son is coming from Virginia, they driving up here, wait until they come wait until they come
as your albums and as also means that you bury as soon as possible, which means that you're very nearby that you don't the the prophet SAW seven was buried in the hunter of Isaiah and it is part of honoring the deceased that that you don't move the body too far away and that you bury the disease nearby. Unless it has been the deceased request to be buried elsewhere. Then we honor their wish, we honor the request given that it is not
too burdensome, that there will not there will not be extreme hardship ensuing from this. Like if the deceased wanted to be buried, let's say in Egypt. And we don't have this. We don't need to be collecting from people $10,000 for this if the if they're if they're deceased left enough money to be buried in Egypt, then that is fine. We can send the body to Egypt to honor the wish. It is not recommended. And it is not recommended that you make that you know part of your well or part of your will say that you want to be back buried far away. It is recommended that you get you just get buried wherever you die.
Even though it is not recommended. We will honor it if this was part of his well, that that that he left enough money to be executed or for this wish to be honored, then we will honor it
perfectly. As we all will join us.
Then, while you're speeding up the process, everything should be fast. We should move 123 because honoring the body is the barrier of quick burial of the body is the best way to honor the body. While we're doing this, we're doing things that are also important. Diane was saying they need to be we pay off the debts particularly
that that that comes before there was a Hazara who said that the prophet SAW Selim instructed that a dying comes before I will say, The Prophet said this because it was a it comes before the diamond the Quran, not to indicate the order, but to point out the importance of Messiah because the importance of the dine is established. So say it was mentioned first in the crowd to point out the importance of lasagna, but not to indicate the order value we'll see if the news will not be out of date. So after I will say already, this ordering the Quran is not for you know, it is to point out the importance of the Prophet said that the data must be paid before it was a pay after that the
prophet SAW some stress to us many times. One time he even refused to pray, do the general prayer for someone who died with an unpaid debt who was someone who owed people money.
Okay, so that is immediately after this, and then I'm Kodama hola hola said for either fsfe de sotera, Toronto, he will start to talk about washing here, we'll start to talk about washing are we missing anything before washing?
Hopefully not. So, washing, washing is a barbecue fire is a communal obligation, if there is not enough people in the community to wash them that is certainly a sin that we all earn or we all our crew or we all
carry that said so.
But what if there is no one except you, then it becomes an individual obligation, what if there is no one but you to watch that then it becomes an individual obligation. So it is either a communal obligation or an individual obligation.
And we will talk later about who is to be washed and who is not to be washed martyrs are not to be washed people who are killed unjustly not to be lost. But that is a different discussion that we'll come to later. So he said you know putana said for lack of efficacy, he saw theoret arato. When they start to watch him his our I should be covered is our should be covered. So who washes here, you know, and what I would like to be covered and lose an hour is, you know, to be honored. First of all, in the Hanbury mesonet. If you're less than seven, there is no I would offer you
if you're less than seven, there is no
if you're more than seven, more than seven, if you're a boy seven to 10, your hour is only
basically the private parts seven to 10.
Here you will get confused. If you get confused. Like just use sevens less than seven No, our more than seven there is our the our for everyone will be except for that seven to 10 thing for somebody is if you're a boy, but the our offer everyone will be from the naval to the knees.
The our of our woman also from the naval to the knees, he has the power of Romans from the navel to the knees. Keep in mind who's watching her women. However, however, that is a little bit controversial. Its controversial whether the hour I live for a woman is from the navel to the knees. What made this color is say this because women usually breastfeed in front of each other. So they figured that the breasts must not be part of the hour, then what Where should we start, then start from the navel to the knees. That is the women among themselves. However, however, other scholars and that seems to be a very sort of strong position. Consider that our our woman is what does not
appear. Usually, you know that which does not appear usually particularly in the case of service and so on. Yes, women can breastfeed in front of each other. But this does not mean that she will have sort of all of the entire body above the navel, exposed in front of another woman she would he would usually not do this. So you also want to be respectful of this. And you want to cover a little bit more for a woman. Even though she's being watched by a woman. Keep in mind if there is no woman to watch her. She's not going to be watched.
You know that to that extent. We are basically concerned with people's privacy and the covering of our what is going to happen to her. If she is in the company of men. She's traveling in the company of men. There is no woman what's going to happen to her
So, they will basically do the,
they will do the hammam for for her
mom for her, the opposite is true a man in the company of women who is going to wash,
the first one to watch is it will say
if your husband is around, he can wash her
hands in the mouth, not in the hands of females, but they put their husbands down far down on the list irrespective of fees,
they really say that they say that, because of the disagreement, and once there is a disagreement, they try to respect that this disagreement. So, the first one who would watch is the one c Okay, in the hand very melted, the first one who would watch is the will say, the second is an up
can go on up howsoever high. So just and so on, then it and going down howsoever low, and then basically it will be the heirs of his also bought you know his his paternal kin, heirs of his paternal kin
in the order of their inheritance. So if I make harder if I you know, obstruct your inheritance than I am more entitled to washing than you, you know i and then it will be all our ham, which is material not kin material of kin.
All I have is not only maternal Kim, but also can that could be on your father's side, but through a woman, kinship that goes through the womb.
And then who washes spouses after this spouses.
We're talking here about what
all of this is a man here. And then the spouse here would be his wife.
For a woman, it would be also to say whoever she designated to watch her before her death, and all would be women. Her mother howsoever high, her daughter has to ever go. And then
women, women can can women can
cassava and maternal, and then her husband
and after her husband
who washes has at him, any woman from any any woman, you know from the community
after his wife who washes any man from the community.
We're doing it here. So we're not you know, it's just like the spouse here at the bottom.
And the spouse comes only before agenda before the foreign sort of the unrelated people but he comes after everybody because we're trying to respect the hanafy position that says the spouse does not wash. But at the same time we know that I should said Had it been had we had we gone back to the time when the profits or sudden died and when I would have washed them except his wife's. So we are
cognizant of our issue statement. we're cognizant that many of us harbor apobec the designated has not been colonized. His wife has now been Tom nice to watch them. As Matt watched us mad about his wife, not his daughter was Abu Bakr, radi Allahu, because he designated there too. So we are cognizant of those. Therefore, we it's not like we are accepting the Hanafi position. But we're showing sort of the respect to it. Therefore, we're putting the spouses down on the list to show respect for the disagreement between the form and vibe. But at the same time, we're recognizing that it is absolutely permissible because of all of those reports. Because of all of those reports.
will say you guys first
if I make one say that my spouse washes me on the will say you will go first that designate that the person designated by the deceased will go first.
And certainly if the deceased designate their spouse to watch them, they will go first.
Nowadays, like that has become sterilized sanitized to the extent that it is sort of, like an assembly sort of, it's like a
mechanical process that,
you know, we die. You call up somebody, you know, and you're done. And you don't even want to deal with, like the deceased, like people are just too timid to come near their deceased relatives.
Because we're considering, yeah, that's probably heard before others, but we are considering the fact.
Yeah, but But the idea here is that the homies are saying that the contract becomes like the contract is terminated upon this. So that the contract is terminated upon us, because contracts are all terminated upon this. And this is a man and this is a woman. So there is an issue here. This is a man she is a woman, they they were married, there was a contract between them. But all contracts get terminated upon death.
just to show respect for their position, we're putting the spouses on the bottom. But
but but in practicality, if you designate your spouse, they will jump to the top, they will be the Wesley, they'll jump to the top. So if you want your spouse to do the washing, you designate your spouse, as the person to do the washing before that.
We're saying that this is the hanafy position, where
are you here?
No, but this is
but in the contract accordingly.
You're forcing me to defend the position that I don't uphold them per se, but out of respect for the harpies, their their point, their viewpoint is contracts are terminated upon this. That is the nature of contracts. These people have a contract. Marriage is a contract, you know, mutual agreement. So one of them died, the contract is terminated. Now that you're more said no, she is going to watch him because she was his wife, and so on.
Many scholars says that many scholars, you know, particularly adult hobbies and stuff, they say the spouse
is first not at the bottom at the top, but we're just going over the hump daddy viewpoint here. They put the spouse at the bottom there inspect the disagreement that happened between the Imams
Unfortunately, it were
well let's finish this particular segment and then you know influence the rest of the Washington next time. So he said remember Kodama Rahim, Allah said some EOS robot no acid under our feet. So May Allah for Allah de cotton, Femina de, then, so we've done this. Okay.
Now, we've covered because you will wash while the deceased is covered from the navel to the knees. NFC as a woman be a little bit more generous with your covering,
but in the embedding mental habits still from the navel to the knees, because
it will be women who are watching her. So
then, then what we will do now is we will try to move all the
The you know, the
excrement, the feces and stuff, everything that is inside the abdomen, the stool will try to move this and try to clean.
Afterwards after we squeeze it out we try to clean and then we will make will do and then we will make mostly for the disease, just like the hospital that we make starting from the right side starting with the right side and then the left side. We will cover this in detail next time. But this time he is saying then the app his abdomen should be squeezed gently, the one doing the washing should wrap his hand with a cloth and wash the private parts because after he squeezed the abdomen gently you know stuff will come out. This will need to be washed. Can it be wiped only no is this there is disagreement within America but washed, wash.
So you will set them up almost almost all the way up, almost all the way up. And you will massage the abdomen squeeze may have not been the best word we could have used the massage, he will massage the abdomen but
squeeze, squeeze is better.
It is basically like
like firm massage of the abdomen to get the stuff out to honor the deceased. Because if you don't do it now, it will happen a little bit later after you shroud them.
