The time immediately following the death of a loved one can be overwhelming, with grief and bereavement complicated by the seemingly endless number of tasks. For non-muslims, losing a Muslim family member can cause additional confusion on how to proceed. Jamaat Ibad Ar-Rahman can help you during these difficult times by arranging everything from picking up the body from the hospital, performing the ritual prayer on the body of the deceased (Salaatul Janazah), burying the body at a Muslim cemetery, and finally completing all the required legal paperwork.

1. Inform the hospital that you would like Jamaat Ibad Ar-Rahman Funeral Home to pick up the body.

2. Contact Ibad Ar-Rahman Funeral Home by sending an email to cemetery@ibadarrahman.org with following information: Your name and contact number. The First, Middle, Last name of deceased. The hospital the body is located. We will only pickup body from Triangle area hospitals.

4. We will go to the hospital, indicated in your email, and pick-up the body. You must contact the Masjid before 12pm if you want same day burial. We need time to pick up the body, prepare for Salaatul Janazah and inform the cemetery that a grave needs to be dug. If we receive a request after 12pm, we will pick up the body from the hospital the following day. Note: We do not store bodies in the funeral home overnight or perform embalming services.

Bi-Weekly Cemetery Trip:

The Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him) referred to death as 'the destroyer of desires." In an attempt to act upon the hadith, every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, a group of brothers visit the JIAR Cemetery. Please see or email Br. Iqbal [fahad3284@hotmail.com] for more information.
