In the name of Allah. Most Gracious. Most Merciful

The Sakinah Foundation & Cape Town Muslim Events

Fiqh of Janazah and Burial Workshop

“Every soul shall taste death and then to Us will be your return.” [`Ankabūt: 57]

Our imminent death is a reality that we all face. The Muslim is commanded to be ever mindful of death and to ensure that he meets his death in the best of conditions.

The Funeral prayer of a deceased Muslim is a communal obligation (Fard Kifayah). If someone is buried without it being performed then the whole community is held responsible but as long as some gather and perform it, the obligation is removed from the whole community.

Ever wonder,

How do I handle a family member falling ill?
What do I do in their final moments in this world?
How do I wash and shroud the dead?
How can I benefit my dear mother after her death?
What are the procedures of burial?

  • Learn the essentials related to the management of a Muslim funeral.
  • Learn what to do when you or a beloved is at death’s door.
  • Discover the Sunnah in consoling the relatives of the deceased and related matters.
  • Acquire PRACTICAL knowledge of how to wash and shroud the deceased while preserving their human dignity.
  • Study the Sunnah method of performing the Salah al Janazah and respectful escorting of the deceased to the grave.

A reality so clear and so near but something many shy away from discussing whereas the Messenger Sallalaahu alaihi wassalam advised “Increase the mention of the destroyer of desires: Death” [Tirmidhi]

Don’t you think it is time to learn about the journey and happenings that we all have to go through?

  • Death and Beyond [al-Mawt wa Maa Warā’ahu]
  • After Death Procedures and Consolation of Next of Kin
