Inserting water into the nose and throat of the deceased


What do the pious and expert scholars of Islam say: It is said that when a man or women dies in the state of impurity (Junub) their Ghusl does not become valid unless their throat has been cleaned with a wet piece of cloth three times and some water is inserted in the nose. Is this true?


This is totally against the teachings of Islam. Wash the body by performing Wudu first, without putting water into the mouth and nose.

And Allah ﷻ knows best
