Funeral Room Refurbishment Project
JMAH is working to refurbish the current outdated body wash facilities in the masjid with a new state-of-the-art facility which makes it easy for the body to be washed in a dignified and Islamic manner. We’re in need of financial support to create a body wash facility that includes the following:
Cold Storage : A cold storage facility which can accommodate three bodies at any one time.
Moving & Handling Equipment : The facility will cater for the moving and handling of the body through the means of hydraulic and manual lifting apparatus and transportation trolleys.
Coffins/Caskets : According to the Islamic tradition and the Sunnah the deceased must only be buried in a shroud. However, we must also adhere to the rules and regulations of the local council which requires burying the deceased in coffins/caskets
The Shroud (White Cotton Sheets) : Shrouding the body is obligatory based on the commands of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The facility will provide a plain thick white cotton material (non- transparent) to shroud the decease.
Alhamdulillah due to your generous donations and support, we’ve managed to hit our target of £10,000 for Phase 1 of our Funeral Room/Basement refurbishment project. Work on the Funeral room is in motion …
May Allah reward all who donated to the project and make it a means of an everlasting reward Insha’Allah.
Phase 2 will Insha’Allah start soon and we’ll be launching a campaign to raise funds for this soon to refurbish the basement into a community/girls classrooms area … More details coming soon …
