Have you asked yourself why corpses have to be bathed and dressed before burial?. How do you see such an event?. Isn’t that weird to see a dead body being thoroughly bathed for burial?.
We know you might have asked this question before of which there has not been an answer.
Today, MyLifeGuideOnline.com brings to you the answer you have been asking for overly long time.
This question was being asked on a platform that counsels users and the answer provided thereof worth sharing with you.
According to what our portal gathered clearly stated that: “When a person dies and is prepared for burial, all of his body is washed in the same way as a living person washes his body to remove the state of ritual impurity. Death marks the end of our life on earth and the beginning of another leading to the hereafter. The departure from this life is thus marked by an act of symbolic purification.
The decomposition that takes place after the death is a process that will eventually be reversed when we are resurrected. Therefore, the symbolic gesture of purification is useful because it marks the end of a stage wherein purification is necessary before any act of worship. It signifies that one is approaching the next stage without any lingering impurity”.
