Salaam E Shaykh,
I’m from Indonesia, i am in condition of 5 month pregnancy Insha Allah.
i would like to ask about umbilical cord, based on Islamic shariah what should we do as a parents later on for the umbilical cord?should it be planted?throw into the sea?or any guidance based on Qur’an, Syekh?
wa `alaykum salam,
The umbilical cord as other parts of the body must be respected and buried. The practice of the Sahaba (RA) was to bury it.
