[خَاتِمَةٌ] يُنْدَبُ الْغُسْلُ مِنْ غُسْلِ الْمَيِّتِ وَيُكْرَهُ أَنْ يُغَسِّلَهُ جُنُبٌ أَوْ حَائِضٌ إمْدَادٌ وَالْأَوْلَى كَوْنُهُ أَقْرَبَ النَّاسِ إلَيْهِ فَإِنْ لَمْ يُحْسِنْ الْغُسْلَ فَأَهْلُ الْأَمَانَةِ وَالْوَرَعِ

وروي عن أبي يوسف أنه كره للحائض الغسل؛ لأنها لو اغتسلت بنفسها لم تعتد به فكذا إذا غسلت ( بدائع الصنائع ج ١ ص ٣٠٤ دار الكتب العلمية.)(

وَيَنْبَغِي أَنْ يَكُونَ غَاسِلُ الْمَيِّتِ عَلَى الطَّهَارَةِ كَذَا فِي فَتَاوَى قَاضِي خَانْ، وَلَوْ كَانَ الْغَاسِلُ جُنُبًا أَوْ حَائِضًا أَوْ كَافِرًا جَازَ وَيُكْرَهُ، كَذَا فِي مِعْرَاجِ الدِّرَايَةِ.
