Ruling 563

It is the responsibility of the husband to provide the kafan for his wife, even if she has her own wealth. Similarly, if a woman is given a revocable divorce (al‐ṭalāq al‐rijʿī) – which will be explained in the section on the rules of divorce – and she dies before the expiry of her prescribed waiting period (ʿiddah), her husband must provide the kafan for her. In the event that her husband is not bāligh or he is insane, the guardian of the husband must provide the wife’s kafan from the husband’s estate.
