Kissing the mayyit


1. What are the differences, if any, between the ghusl of mayyit of the Hanafis and Shafee'is?

2. Is it allowed to touch or kiss the mayyit mahram male/female on forehead after ghusl of mayyit for Hanafis as well as Shafee'is?


1. We do not know of the differences.

2. It is permissible.
Refer to a shaafi`ee aalim for the shaafi`ee view.

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