The loin cloth is bound round her upper legs (Acts like underwear)
The waist wrapper is tied in place. Put on the sleeveless shirt (Long to cover the body from the shoulder to the feet). Put
the head veil. The deceased’s left hand should be placed on her chest, then put her right hand on the left hand like the way
in the Salaat (Prayer).
The edge of the top sheet is folded over the deceased right side, then the other edge over his left side. Then the second
sheet should be folded the same way.
These sheets should be fastened with a piece of cloth {Tie ropes}, one above the head, and another under the feet, and two
around the body.
There is no Islamic teaching of writing anything on the shrouds.
