Religious clarification regarding the burial of those deceased and the legal aspects in Islam

Accordingly, all four of the Islamic authoritative sources: Al Quran, Al Hadith, Al Ijmaa', and Al Qiyaas clearly imply that the body of a dead person needs to be buried into the earth. Verses in the Quran that prescribe burial: 1. مِنْهَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ وَفِيهَا نُعِيدُكُمْ وَمِنْهَا نُخْرِجُكُمْ تَارَةً أُخْرَىٰ ( سورة طه : 55) “From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time.” (20:55) In the above verse, by stating that, after you are dead “We will return you” to the earth, Allah emphasizes the fact that, those who are deceased should be placed in the Earth. The following verse clarifies the same: 2. قَالَ فِيْهَا تَحْيَوْنَ وَفِيْهَا تَمُوْتُوْنَ وَمِنْهَا تُخْرَجُوْن (سورة الأعراف : 25) “He added, “There you will live, there you will die, and from there you will be resurrected.” (Quran, Al Ar’af: 25)

Religious clarification with regard to cremating the body of a Muslim Covid-19 victim

618
If a Muslim passes away it is Fardh Kifaayah upon the Muslims to bathe the body, enshroud (kafn) it, conduct the prayers, and bury it in a dignified manner at a cemetery of the Muslims. If any of these rites are not performed, all of the Muslims are bounded guilty in the court of Allah for not fulfilling the religious obligations.
