Non-Muslim viewing the body of the deceased

Q: Can the dead body of Muslim woman be seen by a non Muslim woman? Similarly can the dead body of a Muslim man be seen by a non muslim man?

A: Yes. It is better that she is not allowed to come near the mayyit. She may see from a distance.

As above.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
