(This is) because of the Hadith of `A'ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) who narrated that: “When the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) died, he was covered with a Hibra Burd”
“Burd”: A cloth that includes and covers the whole body. “Hibra” Burd cloth that was known at the time and came from Yemen.
Yes, there are signs that indicate the death of a person which show on the body. Among them:
1: Relaxation of the “sadgh.” “Sadgh” is the area between the eyes and the ears
2: Inclination of the nose.
3: Separation of the palms – as if they are dislocated from arms.
4: Separation of the feet so that the legs seems to be separated from ankles. They are not upright but relax. Some people add: closing the eyes and stretching the skin of the face.
