Imam ShafiThe bathing is to be done from under the dressThey maintained that it is a sunna and rely on consensus or on a divine act, for it is related in a tradition that they heard a voice saying, "Do not take off his dress ",or that they were subjected to sleep; thus they said that it is better if the dead person is bathed from under his dress
