Islamic funeral services

Islamic funeral services are an obligation for all Muslims and typically involve funeral prayers Salat al-Janazah (Janazah prayer). The prayers are usually led by the closest male relative of the deceased, however, if none are available, then the Imam or other knowledgeable Muslim can fill in.

It’s up to you whether you’d like to personalise the funeral service, as some Islamic families now choose to add special touches such as musical tributes, photos and video displays.

What our service involves

The Janazah prayer consists of 4 takbirs:

  • In the first Takbir - recite Sourate Al-Fatiha (1st sourate in the Koran)
  • In the second Takbir - make Duas for the Prophet
  • In the third Takbir - make Duas for the deceased, and
  • In the four Takbir - make Duas for the humanity (ouma).

If you and your family have something specific in mind, our Mareena Purslowe funeral directors can tailor our Islamic funeral services to include the elements above, or something more personal.
