If the death occurred over the weekend, contact the doctor or hospital to determine if the hospital can store the body and contact us immediately. Please note that a death certificate must be obtained prior to burial from the County office. Most County offices are open only during weekdays and for a few hours on Saturday. Also, the cemetery charges additional fees to open graves and allow burials on weekends and holidays. As such, in the event of death on weekend, the burial may have to wait until Monday afternoon.

Note : It typically takes about 6 hours to make all the arrangements at a minimum (obtain death certificate, open the grave, arrange the transportation). As suchthe arrangements will be typically made for burial the next day. In according with Hadith and Sharia, burial should be done within 24 hours of death. Family, relatives or friends who wish to participate in ghusul, janazah and dafan MUST be present same or following day.

Janaza prayer is performed right after the Dhuhr prayer. The Ghusl is typically performed before the Janaza prayers (around 11 am).

Yaseen Foundation also offers financial help to families who’ve lost loved ones and are having financial difficulties covering the costs. If your family finds itself in that situation, please lets us know in confidence.
