Lancaster Muslim Burial Service provides bathing, shrouding and burial services for the Muslim community in Lancaster and the surrounding areas, we work in partnership with Lancaster City Council.
From the release of the deceased from hospital, wrapping the shroud and finally, burial; there are lots of stages to follow and particular expertise required to do so.
When someone passes away, we know its a very stressful time for the family.
The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said;
‘The believers, in their love, mutual kindness, and close ties, are like one body; when any part complains, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever.’
– Sahih Muslim
Following this sentiment, in Lancaster we have a team of volunteers from the Muslim community who work to assist you with all the necessary arrangements as and when required. We try to ensure our services meet the needs of the Muslim community at such a difficult time.
If you are in need of assistance or anticipate the need of our services you should contact a member of the funeral team at the earliest possible opportunity. This is so they can help with all processes during this period.
