Funeral Rites in Islam
Perhaps the best and most comprehensive book on the topic of funeral rites is volume four of the English translation of Sayyid Sabiq's Fiqh as-Sunnah. However, there remains a need for a more rigorous authentication of the material used in the text. Also, volume four is part of an expensive five volume set, only available in hardback. Consequently, this work fills two voids; that of a fully authenticated work on funeral etiquette, and one that is reasonably priced.
