Muslims Are Forbidden To Keep Dead Bodies In Morgues But.
"Prophet Mohammed said that there are three things that must be addressed immediately when they happened. The first thing which must not be delayed is the time for Sallah, marriage rites, and the third one is when someone dies the person must be buried immediately because he is not part of the living and that is why Muslims don't keep the dead in morgues, but due to law and technology, it has become necessary that we will keep dead bodies at the morgue for doctors to conduct postmortems", he narrated. To Baba Jamal, there is nothing wrong if the next John Mahama administration grants Muslims their wish so long as it is in tandem with the laws of the country by establishing in every major Zongo Community a mortuary for a befitting preservation of their dead. "There is freedom of worship in this country and everybody is free to pursue their religious beliefs and so if it is true that adherents of the Muslim faith are forbidden to keep their dead in morgues, then it is the responsibility of government to provide the environment for such category of people to abide by their religious tenets without any kind of state impediments," he stated.
