Relegating Doctrine to Background

A (Hazrat Shaikh (DB)'s) near one died in South India, away from home. The family insisted on bringing the body home. According to the Doctrine (shariat) the burial should have taken place in south only. For preserving the body during transportation the doctors used such chemicals that it was not possible to give the body a bath. Even Mufti Muhammed Usama was consulted. (Burial took place after a taiyummum.)
