Kissing Person Who Has Died ~ Hi all readers! I am sure, we all have families who have passed away. Maybe those who have died are fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, grandmothers, grandfathers, and so forth. They are the people we care about. We already know that people who have died will never live again in this world. It is even possible before they are buried, we will kiss them. The question is, can we kiss someone who has died?
As usual, before I answer the question above, I will quote a hadith that is specifically related to our discussion.
