A person dies on a ship. What to do?

If a person dies on a ship while travelling at sea, according to Imaam Ahmad(Rahimahullah)- 2 Options

 

1. The people should wait if they hope to reach some place where they can bury him (such as an island or beach) in a day or two, and if they are confident that the body will not decay.

 

2. However, if this is not possible, they should wash the body, shroud and embalm it, then pray the funeral prayer, and finally, tie something heavy to it and drop it in the water.
