Is there any reports/narrations, fiqhi opinions or sharia manuals which mention the punishment for necrophilia in Islamic law if there is one?

Yes, intercourse with a corpse is covered in fiqh. The punishment is a Tazir according to the Hanafis and the dominant opinion of the Shafi'is and Hanbalis. And it is the Hadd of Zina according to the Malikis.

  • Brother, I have a question. Do you need 4 witnesses to implement the tazeer in this case?
