    In Islam Muslims are to be buried within 24 hours of death [or as soon as possible]. We are not to be embalmed or cremated because it is said the deceased can feel and hear.

    Bathing, shrouding and burial is all did within that 24 hour period.

    Allah Almighty says, "Every self will taste death. You will be paid your wages in full on the Day of Rising. Anyone who is distanced from the Fire and admitted to the Garden, has triumphed. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of delusion," (3:185)
