Why was Osama buried at sea?? Obama said they went by Islamic practices, well it doesn't look like it... Is he really dead?


Burial rituals should normally take place as soon as possible and include:[1]

Bathing the dead body,[2] except in extraordinary circumstances as in battle of Uhud.[3]
Enshrouding dead body in a white cotton or linen cloth.[4]
Funeral prayer .(صلاة الجنازة) [5]
Burial of the dead body in a grave.
Positioning the deceased so that the head is faced towards Mecca

  • On Fox, they said NO ONE would claim the body, so he was buried at sea...

  • I think the reason is if he is buried at sea there can not be a shrine built at the grave sight. Also it stops anyone from digging the body up and desecrating it which would start a huge international problem.

  • I think when you are the instigator of such mass terror, you lose your rights to proper burial. Now with that being said...

    Rule 624 states that it was correct to bury him at sea.

  • Not the question, that makes sense. All this Osama junk, there are too many questions and theories. This question poses a very interesting idea.
