"In brief, the Bahá'í law for the burial of the dead states
that it is forbidden to carry the body for more than one
hour's journey from the place of death; that the body should
be wrapped in a shroud of silk or cotton, and on its finger
should be placed a ring bearing the inscription "I came forth
from God, and return unto Him, detached from all save Him,
holding fast to His Name, the Merciful, the Compassionate"; and
that the coffin should be of crystal, stone or hard fine wood.
A specific Prayer for the Dead is ordained, to
be said before interment. As affirmed by 'Abdu'l-Bahá and
the Guardian, this law precludes cremation of the dead. The
formal prayer and the ring are meant to be used for those
who have attained the age of maturity, i.e. 15 years of age."

(Baha'u'llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 229)
