Is it permissible for a woman to wash and shroud a deceased person whilst she is on her menses?

Answer:
It is permissible for a menstruating woman to wash deceased women and shroud them. And from the men she can only wash her (dead) husband. Menstruation is not considered a prohibition from washing a dead person for burial. And to Allaah belongs all (bestowal of guidance and ability to perform good deeds).
