The Manitoba Islamic Association serves the community in many ways, one of which is the provision of funeral services. We arrange for washing, shrouding, transport, Janazah prayers and burials. We do not charge for our services and negotiate preferential prices from other service providers.
As our community grows, non-Muslim funeral homes are no longer able to provide the services we require, especially with the emphasis on performing Janazah’s and burials as soon as possible.
We need a space where we can honor the Muslim dead, fulfill their rights upon us and support their families.
The proposed facility is an extension of the mosque, giving families the comfort that their loved ones are prepared for Janazah in an environment that is Islamic, sensitive and supportive.
