Abstract

Funeral rituals are an ancient issue that concerns all people. As each era and race are a constant phenomenon, rituals related to death have been formed. The Turkish society also has its death ceremonies. This is different from the death ceremonies of other Muslims. However, it varies according to the region’s celebration in Turkey. Again, death ceremonies in Turkey also vary according to different faiths and cultures. However, the dominant character in every culture has been the ancient Turkish culture. Death ceremonies are practices that will contribute to moral teaching for spouses, friends and relatives.
