If he dies at night, the area in which the body is placed should be lighted. It is also recommended to hasten his burial. However, if his death is not certain, the believers should wait until it becomes known to them.
If the deceased is a pregnant woman, and the baby in her womb is alive, the burial should be delayed for a period that allows for the baby to be delivered from the womb through a caesarean section. The stomach should then be stitched prior to giving ghusl to the body. It is better to deliver the baby by making the incision on the left side of the mother.
