I was talking to the vicar in our local church yesterday.
He told me that he had been approached by a Muslim family and asked if he would conduct the funeral for their stillborn daughter, because they had been told by the Imam that she could not have an Islamic funeral.
That made me wonder, what are the rules with regards to burying stillborn babies is Islam? (I am not sure how far into the pregnancy the mother was)
Apparently the family have prayed and hoped for a baby daughter for a long time, but the woman only seems to be able to bear sons.
Thank you for your replies.
