152 It Is Forbidden You To Transport The Body Of The Deceased A Greater Distance Than One Hour's Journey From The City #130






The intention of this command is to limit the duration of the journey to
one hour's time, irrespective of the means of transport that are chosen to
carry the body to the burial site. Baha'u'llah affirms that the sooner the
burial takes place, the more fitting and acceptable will it be (Q and A
16).

The place of death may be taken to encompass the city or town in which the
person passes away, and therefore the one hour's journey may be calculated
from the city limits to the place of burial. The spirit of Baha'u'llah's
law is for the deceased to be buried near where he or she dies.
