Step 5

Coordinate the time for the pick-up of the deceased, the time of washing  (at least 3 hours before burial) and the time for the funeral prayer. These times will be coordinated with the Imam or a member of the Burial committee, once the paperwork has been filled out and payment has been made.

Step 6

It is highly recommended that the family members step forward to wash their deceased. If family members or friends are not available, UIC will try it’s utmost best to recruit volunteers from the community for the task of washing.

Step 7

The Funeral prayer  can be held either at Crescent Cemetery or in the multipurpose hall at Utah Islamic Center.  Funeral prayer is  led by the Imam of Utah Islamic Center or his designee, unless requested otherwise. It is encouraged, when possible that the eldest son, should lead the funeral prayer.

Step 8

A few months after the burial, if the family chooses to do, they may put a tombstone on the grave. Utah Islamic Center typically uses Pioneer Monuments for tombstones.
