The remains of Tashfeen Malik reportedly remain unclaimed, with no Muslim mosques offering to conduct a funeral for the terrorist wife who partnered with husband Syed Rizwan Farook in a deadly California attack.

FoxNews.com reports if no religious leaders step up, her body will likely be cremated at taxpayers' expense.

Islamic law forbids cremation.

"If nobody claims a body, it is turned over to the public administrator, who will handle it civilly and not religiously," lawyer Troy Slaten tells the media outlet. "Cremation is usually standard because it's the cheapest option."

"The state is not going to care about religious tradition," lawyer David Wohl tells FoxNews.com. "She was a terrorist."

As of Friday, Malik's body is still at the San Bernardino County morgue, along with that of her husband, whose body, however, is expected to be released soon to his family, the media outlet reports.

"No one wants to claim her and no one wants to do the funeral," a source in the Muslim community tells the media outlet.

"They are all waiting for someone else to be the one to take care of this part of it."

But political and religious leaders haven't yet been able to get someone to perform a burial for her that adheres to Islamic tradition, FoxNews.com reports.

Malik didn't attend local mosques and was unknown in the Muslim community before the horrific Dec. 2 attack at the Inland Regional Center that killed 14 people.

Although her family is said to live in Saudi Arabia, the kingdom's embassy in Washington isn't taking responsibility for her funeral, FoxNews.com reports.

Officials in her native Pakistan also tell the outlet they've gotten no transport requests and have no plans to step up.
