“Who, when disaster strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah , and indeed to Him we will return.”” – Surat Al-Baqarah, Verse 156.

Losing a loved one is never easy. The Manitoba Islamic Association is committed to helping families dealing with the loss of a loved one by facilitating funeral arrangements. The MIA offers the Muslim community comforting and supportive funeral services, in partnership with Cropo Funeral Services. Please contact the MIA prior to contacting Cropo.

Body washing is performed by MIA volunteers who perform the washing with care and in way that maintains the dignity of the deceased, in accordance with the Prophet’s Sunnah. Proper shrouding (kafan) will also be performed after the washing.

The funeral prayer (salat-ul-Janazah) will be held at the Manitoba Grand Mosque unless otherwise pre-arranged for a different location. It will be lead by the MIA prayer leader, unless otherwise requested by the family. The MIA prayer leader is also available to oversee the burial and perform Du’a for the deceased.

The MIA has made arrangements with Glen Lawn Memorial gardens on Lagimodiere Blvd. The gardens offer a section of burial grounds dedicated for Muslims.
