In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Dear believers,

In these uncertain times, we have received requests for guidelines on burial preparations for the deceased infected with a contagious disease according to the rulings of Ayatullah Sayyid al-Sistani.

We pray to Almighty God that such measures are not required. However, in cases where they are needed, community members and volunteers who are involved in burial preparations are encouraged to review this material, which has been made available as a PDF for convenience.
