What to use when bathing the dead.

Q. I know that the use of soap to bathe a dead is permissible. I also heard of the use of doungs leaf etc. in accordance with the sunnah. What is the best thing to use?

A. The use of the lote (doungs) leaf is the best since it is in accordance to the teachings of the Prophet (SAS).

And Allah knows best.
