Islam Practices Burial Instead of Cremation



Why do Muslims bury dead bodies instead of cremating them?
By Usman Abdul Rehman


Answer:

The human body has similar components found in the soil which hastens decomposition once buried. It also contributes to the fertility of the soil.The same land space can be re-utilized once the body has totally decomposed. It provides an economical alternative for the poor who could not afford to buy tons of woods for cremation.


Burying bodies is without pollution. Cremation contributes to air pollution which is detrimental to health and the environment.
