Muslim funerals


Our funeral directors know that the burial of a Muslim should occur as soon as possible, usually within a day of the death. Cremation is usually forbidden. We have experience in arranging funeral services for families of Muslim faith.

The burial occurs after the following rituals:

  • The bathing and shrouding the body
  • A viewing
  • Salah (prayer).

The body is laid in the grave so that the head is facing the Qibla (Mecca).
