Origin of  or Forty day anniversary "Chaliswan" after death of a person


1.

The forty-day anniversary is a Pharaonic custom

What is the origin of the forty-day anniversary? Is there any evidence that eulogizing is acceptable in Islam?

Praise be to Allaah.
The origin of this is a Pharaonic custom which was practised by the Pharaohs before Islam, then it spread from them to other nations. It is a reprehensible innovation (bid’ah) which has no basis in Islam, and it is be rejected as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever innovates anything in this matter of ours (Islam) which is not a part of it, will have it rejected.” (Saheeh – agreed upon).

Its origin is that it is an old habit from the Pharaon era and known as "the forty". They pretend wrongly that the soul comes back to the corpse after 40 days. This is why, they put some properties such as food, drink, ornaments, clothes and the like with the corpse. So if the soul comes back it finds what it needs, as they claim.
