The participants benefited in terms of gaining practical experience of performing Ghusl, Hunut, Kafan and Burial. All queries were clarified by the Aalim and the trainer and misconceptions were clarified. A chart explaining all steps in detail right from performing Ghusl until Kafan was distributed to all.

The participants pledged to form a team and be present during Mayyits to perform the wajibaat on voluntary basis.

The Aalim's explanation of the entire Ahkam was very good and the practical demonstration was very well received. Even the chart explaining all the steps in Ghusl and Kafan was excellent and we will be putting up the same in the Ghusl Room as a ready reckoner.
