Embalming and cosmetology are not allowed unless required by provincial or federal law. Because of the prohibition on embalming and the urgency with which the body must be buried, it is not possible to transport the body from one country to another. Some Ahmadi Muslims living in Canada have a desire to be buried in the country of their ancestry. This, however, may require the embalming of the body due to existing regulations. In such cases Embalming of the body may be allowed. A Local Sadr Jama`at or Local Murabbi should be consulted if there are any questions on the matter.
