I was reading this article: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34920068  . It mentions that the bodies of people who have received chemotherapy do not decompose as fast or as much as normal. Given this and the growing population of the world, is cremation an option in Islam? Is it actively discouraged, is it haram, what is its status,and why. Thank you.
