Here Is The Reason Why Mortuary Attendants Knock The Drawers Before Opening Them

Have you ever heard or seen a mortuary attendant knocking the door or drawers before they open them? Have you ever asked yourself as to why the do so? For me I have seen one doing so but didn’t ask the reason why he did so. In my mind I thought it was a taboo but it was more than that. I did a research and from what I got, I decided to share with you my readers.

What is the reason behind the knocking of the drawers by mortuary attendant before opening them?

1.In some cases people believe that dead bodies have spiritual powers to protect themselves

2.All dead bodies are not the same. A Nigerian mortician by the name Arochukwu explained on an interview that some people don’t like lying close to other bodies, in that case they remove them and put them to another place. This is the main reason they knick before where these bodies are.

3.Sign of respect. This is another reason why mortuary attendants knock the doors or drawers before opening them.

  1. Am a professional mortician, with more than ten years experience, I never knock d door of d morgue once, and I have never experienced such scary thing,,,

  2. Please read Ezekiel 37 v3 “And He said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O LORD GOD, Thou knoweth. Isa.26v19;
    To me, you may be right, who knows whether is the aspect of knowledge, or the hidden secret God kept away from the living! Let’s be careful, my beloved.

  3. What I have once been told about knocking on the doors or drawer is because,some of the deaf ones might be up,might not be in the drawer or can even slap u for just opening the door without knocking

  4. Why and How do dead bodies have spiritual bodies to protect themselves…. Is that really necessary when they are already dead…

    1. No one that has genuine money will ever tell anyone, especially the fast type, if not a petty trader who is not hidden in his/her trading. Go and deceive yourself; e don’t try, idiot.

    2. My dear you wanna decieve people to the other side Sheree, allow God Almighty to than allow Satan 😈 to use you as a pon for destruction… Be wise

  6. All of this mystery is nothing else but the wonders works of GOD. No motal can explain the awesomeness and the wonders of THIS MIGHTY GOD. In all the explanation knocking to take permission and experience shared in this write up about the dead who sometimes changing their position no man can vividly explain it but OUR CREATOR

    1. Have you made the money …… 😤

      Cus if you have you won’t want to Share …. Try be sincere with your self

  7. Why and How do dead bodies have spiritual bodies to protect themselves…. Is that really necessary when they are already dead…

  8. Do be deceived with all this superstition believes because God has used the Bible to open our eyes. ECC 9:5,10 it reads ” For the living that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all, nor do they have any more reward, because all memory of them is forgotten. 6 Also, their lives and their hate and their jealousy have already perished, and they no longer have any share in what is done under the sun.10. whatever your hands finds to do, do with all your might, for there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave. My there is no better person who can tell us truth about the dead better than the giver of life itself.

    1. Please read Ezekiel 37 v3 “And He said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O LORD GOD, Thou knoweth. Isa.26v19;

  9. When my dad died we embalm him in his room before the proper burial.
    The private Doctor/Mortician whom we paid to take care of his corpse pending burial, on one occasion in my presence when he was about entering the room he knocked the door and I asked him why he said it was to take permission from the dead for him to enter he said in some cases some corpse may be in sitting position and that if he just barge inn without permission there may be consequences. He told me some other scary things then also.
