Egypt's 'Farewell Intercourse' law allowing sex with dead wives

Egypt's new Islamist-dominated parliament is preparing to introduce a controversial law that would allow husbands to have sex with their deceased wives up to six hours after death.

Known as the "farewell Intercourse" law, the measure is being championed as part of a raft of reforms introduced by the parliament that will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 for girls.

I am not well-versed in the Muslim customs. Is having sex with the dead a popular thing?
