Non-Muslim Family Members Rights Over Female Domestic Worker With no Other Muslim Family

Question ID: 40698


Dear Mufti Sahib,

A muslim family’s female domestic became a muslim. She performs salaat and fasts in Rhamadhan.

When asked what to do when she dies she said that her son will take care of her burial. The son

is not a muslim.I suggested that she prepares a note stating she is a muslim and must be given a
muslim burial. She must get the note stamped at the police station.Is it permissible for the son

to take the body to his house for a day or so and for the son to enter the grave to lower the body

into the grave.No other member of her family is muslim.

Get her to sign a document stating that she has accepted Islaam and would be buries as a Muslim. With all her I.D particulars etc.
He brother, who is not a Muslim cannot take her body even for a few hours. He cannot go into the grave. Elderly pious Muslims will do the necessary proceedings in the grave.
