Chapter 28

باب وضع الميت في اللحد

The placing of the deceased in the tomb


قال الصادق (عليه السلام)، إذا وضعت الميت في لحده فضعه على يمينه، مستقبل القبلة، وحل عقد كفنه، وضع خده على التراب .


As-Sadiq عليه السلام said: When you place the deceased in his tomb, then place him on his right, facing the qibla.  Unbind the knots of his kafan and place his cheek upon the dirt.
