al-Ghusl (washing of the body)

  • When a Muslim dies, it is the responsibility of the family or other Muslim(s) to wash the body according to Islamic Rites. It should be a trustworthy, and honest adult Muslim(s) who knows the Islamic way of washing the dead and is able to carry out the washing.
  • ONLY men are to wash men.

  • ONLY women are to wash women.
  • We provide a clean, secluded place with accessible water and soap for the body to be washed 
  • The body is washed at least three times from right to left and top to bottom and must only be washed an odd number of times.
  • In the last wash, the washer may use camphor, or some perfume with the water.
  • Family members who wish to participate in the washing, will be given necessary protective items such as gowns, gloves, shoe covers and masks.
  • The washing will be led by fellow Mosque members of the deceased or a group of Muslims well versed in the customs arranged by our funeral home.
  • Following the Al-Ghusl, the Al-Kafan will take place.

Al-KAFAN (Shrouding of the deceased)

  • Shrouding should start just after the washing of the deceased
  • It is recommended to use white sheets from inexpensive material. 
  • The Kafan of a male consist of three white sheets and four ties
  • The Kafan of a female consist of five white sheets and four ties
  • Some scent or perfume may be put on certain parts of the body
  • Following the Al-Kafan, the deceased will be placed in an all wood construction casket (example below) for the purpose of visitation and transportion. 


A divine service is held over the dead body of every Muslim, young or old, even of infants who have lived only a few minutes. When the soul leaves the body, preparations are made for bidding him the last farewell.

It is highly recommended that, after washing and shrouding the body of the deceased, the body not to be kept long, but rather taken quickly, prayed for, and then buried.

We will transport the deceased to the family's desired mosque for the service.

We will then transport deceased to cemetery for burial. The deceased should be placed in the grave on their right side facing the Qiblah.
