In Turkish culture here in the UK, Turks generally get the body sent to Turkey for burial there. As far as I know we need to be buried the next day, but this delays that usually for at least one more day, sometimes more. Is the next day rule a strict requirement?

    AFAIK neither of both are correct the body should be washed and prepared for funeral and buried as soon as possible this might mean in the same day if possible, however this can delay for reasons such as darkness (at night) for the next day! – Medi1Saif Jan 20 '17 at 12:22
