Description from the publisher:

In this book; Shaykh al-Albani; the Mu?addith of this era addresses the rulings and regulations for both the dying person and those responsible with carrying out the funeral rites; based solely on the Qur'an and the authentic Sunnah.

It was necessary for the Shaykh to compile such a monumental work due to the un-Islamic practices that have crept upon the Muslims as it pertains to the funeral rites. Some of these practices are forbidden; such as wailing over the dead; some are innovations; such as women partaking in what is referred to as the year of mourning; and some even reach the level of Shirk [associating partners with Allah]; such as calling upon the dead and making ?awaf around the graves.

This book serves as a reference point for the English-speaking Muslim to allow them to differentiate between what is legislated based on the Qur'an and the authentic Sunnah; with the understanding of the Companions; and what has no basis in the religion of Islam whatsoever.

Shaykh al-Albani said; describing his work:

“I made it a stipulation to only include in it authentic narrations; as is our normal practice in all our works—and all praise is for Allah; always and forever.

I also omitted some things from the text and much of the commentary that does not have a strong and direct connection to the subject matter of the book. Similarly; I added a few benefits; which cannot be found in the original version.

I ask Allah; the Most High; to benefit the Muslims through this and to make it just like the original version; and all my other books; aiding them to follow the Book and the Sunnah; and to live a life upon Islam; and there is no true way to do this except through beneficial knowledge and righteous actions.”
