Cutting the hair of a deceased person


What do the pious and expert scholars of Islam say: Is it allowed to cut the hair of the deceased after death?


It is not allowed to cut the hair and nails, or to comb the hair after death. It is Makruh Tahrimi (offensive). (Durr al-Mukhtar)

And Allah ﷻ knows best
