Jumma Masjid Kharod has been providing burial services to the Muslim community for many years.
We have all the equipment, facilities, dedicated staff and qualified volunteers required to provide a full service for both men and women in a manner that complies with the Shari’ah.
Our Burial service includes:
• The final bathing (ghusl) of the deceased
• The shrouding (kafan) of the deceased
• The supply of a suitable coffin/casket.
Muslim Law & Traditions
Muslim law and tradition have endowed a Muslim’s funeral with profound religious significance and it should, in every respect, express the dignity, sanctity and modesty of a solemn religious service.
The five stages that follow the death of a Muslim are:
1. The final bathing (ghusl) of the deceased – tajheez
2. The shrouding (kafan) of the deceased – takfeen
3. The funeral prayers – janazah salah
4. The funeral procession – carrying the bier to the grave
5. The burial of the deceased – tadfeen.
It is very important to complete the above stages as quickly as possible, for Rasulullah (ﷺ) has emphasised:
“Make haste at a funeral; if the dead person was good, it is a good state to which you are sending him on; but if he was otherwise it is an evil of which you are ridding yourselves.”
Moreover, the blessings and forgiveness for the deceased that will be acquired by adhering to the command of Rasulullah (ﷺ) is more worthy then delaying the janazah salah, even with the possibility that more participants may attend.
Shari’ah has also prohibited the delaying of the burial on account of a certain relative being overseas and this person’s inability to arrive quickly, for example, due to the unavailability of a flight.
Please note, to enable the burial to take place as quickly as possible we need to comply with the formalities of the law of this country, which requires that the death is certified and registered.
