Reciting Quran by the body of the deceased

Q. Is it permissible to recite Quran by the deceased when he/she is being given Ghusal in the Ghusal Khaana?

A. It will be disliked (Makrooh) to recite Quran, make Zikr or Dua besides the body of the deceased if the body of the deceased is in a room or cubicle like the Ghusal Khaana, which is specifically meant for the cleaning of impurities of the deceased body. One may recite Quran; make Zikr or Dua outside the Ghusal Khaana or after the Ghusal of the deceaseds’ body. (Shaami 2/193/194-Fataawa Darul Uloom Zakariyya 1/660/661-2/782/783)
