FUNERAL HOME FOR ALL RELIGIONS AND BELIEFS
NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MUSLIM FUNERALS
Muslims believe that the soul leaves the body when one dies. On the Day of Judgment, the dead are resurrected, and all are judged according to their deeds. This will determine whether you enter paradise or hell.
In the grave the dead gets visited by two angels who queries the deceased on the conduct of life. The soul is then brought to a kind of timeless place. Here the dead spend time until doomsday.
Before death occurs
When a Muslim is about to die, those closest to him or she read from the Quran and recite the creed - shahada - in the ear of the dying person, so that he or she will remember the confession later. In the grave and at the resurrection.
When death has occurred
When a Muslim is dead, the holy book Quran is read aloud, and a special funeral prayer is said - janazah. The deceased is washed according to the ritual cleansings that are part of Islam. As a general rule, it is women who wash women and men who wash men. After the ritual cleansing the deceased is dressed in white shrouds - the kafan.
Out of respect for the deceased, a Muslim funeral should preferably take place within 24 hours after the death has occurred. In Denmark, however, this can be a challenge, as control and administration often takes longer time. Therefore, in Denmark, it is more likely that the funeral takes place 'as soon as possible', preferably within 3 days. Muslims are buried in consecrated ground.
An imam leads the funeral, which typically takes place in the community to which the deceased belonged. One gathers in the mosque. In Denmark it can also be e.g. an assembly hall or culture house.
In Denmark, most Muslims are buried in a coffin. Muslims do not allow cremation nor, in principle, burial in a coffin. But the latter can vary depending on where you come from and live.
For a Muslim funeral, everyone is welcome. Also people of other religions.
There is no tradition of bringing flowers to the funeral or laying flowers on the grave.
Muslim burial grounds
In several municipal cemeteries, there are Muslim burial grounds. In Brøndby there is a Muslim cemetery, where all Danish Muslims have the right to be buried. Here it is also possible to be buried without a coffin, as has traditionally been done. Some Muslims choose to be buried in their original homeland.
In Aalborg, part of Aalborg Eastern cemetery on Filstedvej has been laid out as a Muslim cemetery.
For the next three days after the funeral, a mourning period is held where friends and family can visit the bereaved to show compassion.
Muslims traditionally do not remove a burial site due to a desire for eternal peace.
