Sidr Leaves (Lote leaves in english), also known by its scientific name Zizyphus Spina-Christi, are from a tree native to parts of Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The Sidrat al-Muntaha, also known as the Lote Tree that marks the end of the seventh heaven, which the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ passed by during Isra and Mi’raj is mentioned in the Quran.

Sidr is also mentioned in the Sunnah as being used to wash the dead body for Janazah: Narrated Ibn `Abbas: “A man fell from his Mount and died while he was with the Prophet (ﷺ) at `Arafat. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Wash him with water and Sidr and shroud him in two pieces of cloth and neither perfume him nor cover his head, for he will be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection saying, ‘Labbaik’.” 

(Bukhari 1268) 

It is also mentioned that it is used to wash the body of someone who has said shahadah and become a muslim:

Qais bin Asim narrated that: “He accepted Islam and the Prophet ordered him to perform Ghusl with water and Sidr.”
