The Fremen funeral rite usually involved the taking of the deceased person's water through the deathstills, along with a short ceremony where people who knew and were fond of the deceased would come forward, speak of how they were a friend of the deceased, and take one of their personal possessions.

When Paul Atreides killed Jamis in a Tahaddi Challenge, Paul's guilt over killing the man caused him to shed tears during the funeral rite. According to longstanding Fremen tradition, to weep during a funeral rite was said to be "giving water to the dead". This was regarded as a profound experience, and one by which the Fremen present were awed.
