Boslem had a magnetic personality and will be remembered fondly by all who knew him. In honor of Boslem, read his obituary to learn more about his life and how you can help support those who have lost loved ones.
What happens to a person after death?
After a person dies, their body goes through several stages of decomposition. In the first few days or weeks after a death, the body is usually at its most vulnerable and undergoes rapid decay. Layers of skin, tissues, and organs slip away until nothing is left but bones and teeth. Due to this process, corpses are often swollen and grotesque looking.
After the initial stage of decomposition, the body begins to putrefy. This means that bacteria start to break down the proteins and fatty acids in the cells, turning them into lactic acid and methane gas. The process produces an earthy smell that can be quite noticeable in warm environments like bedrooms or bathrooms.
At this point, the corpse may start to look more like soil than flesh. The skin will have turned a deep brown or black due to the accumulation of natural gas and oils from skin cells. Muscle tissue will have decomposed completely leaving only fibrous strings behind. Bones will become brittle and easily broken, leading to exposing the skull or skeleton beneath.
Near the end of decomposition, bodies go through a process called putrefaction complete which means that all traces of bacteria are gone and only fatigue remains as evidence of life. At this point, corpses may start to emit a sweet smell coming from the fermentation of carbohydrates by fungal colonies under the skin’s surface.
Boslem Obituary: What happens to a body after death?
When a person dies, their body undergoes a process known as decomposition. In the first few days after death, the body is covered in a fluid called mucous. This liquid helps to protect the body from bacteria and fungi that can cause infection.
After four days, the body begins to dry out and crack open. This stage is known as rigor mortis. During this time, the muscles are stiffer than they were before death, and they may start to turn black because of starch deposits. After seven to 10 days, the body starts to decay and emit an unpleasant smell. At this point, the flesh falls off the bones, which is called putrefaction.
Decay continues until all that’s left are bones, which are eventually cremated or buried.
Boslem Obituary: What happens to remains after death?
Boslem’s remains are buried in a Muslim cemetery. When someone dies in Boslem, their body is washed and shrouded in cloth before being placed into a coffin or tomb. Friends and family of the deceased gather around to say goodbye while paying their respects. Once the funeral is over, workers from the municipality come to take the body away for burial.
There are different beliefs about what happens to a person after death, but most Muslims believe that the soul leaves the body at death and goes to Heaven or Hell. The bodies of Boslems who die in a state of ritual purity (i.e., they have had a religious confession and prayer) are buried immediately. However, the bodies of those who die without having had these rituals performed are usually left unburied for four days so that their souls can be cleansed before burial.
The remains of Boslems who die outside of Islam are also buried according to local custom, although there is often some sort of ceremony preceding the burial.
What can be done with a body after death?
