Incinerating a Disbeliever

Home / Janaza / Incinerating a Disbeliever


My mother is kaffirah and I’m her only family. She is paying an insurance of funeral which says that she will be incinerated after her death. If she dies before me shall I go ahead with this incineration or shall I bury her?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

This is strictly prohibited and we do not obey any person in a disobedience to Allah.
If her mother dies while she is a disbeliever, then she buries her in the tombs of the disbelievers.
