Islamic Burial (Janaza) Service

Death is the inevitable truth. Islam encourages its adherence to contemplate and be prepare for it with virtuous deeds. A companion once got up and said: O Prophet of Allah, who is the most sagacious and the most prudent among the people? He replied;

‘Those who are most aware of death and prepare themselves for it. They are the wisest of people and will have honour in this world and a generous reward in the Hereafter’.

Majority of Ulema are of the opinion that it’s the ‘collective obligation’ (Fardu Kifayah) of the Muslim community to carry out the last rites of a dead Muslim. Preparation of the dead for the burial include;

  1. Cleaning & Washing.
  2. Shrouding.
  3. Attending the funeral prayer
  4. Burying.
