Death is not as an end your actons follows you to the afterlife. You will be separated from the ugliness in the world. But if you live a dishonest and bad life, you will be separated from all the beauty of the world. The body should be buried as soon as possible after death and face the mecca.
After the body is buried, all guests go to the house of the family of the deceased. A meal is prepared and guests usually stay for the entire day. Family members may stay for the whole week. The mourning period officially lasts for 40 days. During that time, family members wear only black clothing. For one full year, the wife of the deceased continues to wear black, but the anniversary of the death is not observed.
