If one requires Islamic funeral services due the unfortunate event of death, please contact us at (318) 675-0456. 

Anoter option is you may come down to the Masjid during one of the prayer times for guidance. In the meantime, here are some tasks that can be performed:

  • Inform the family of the deceased ASAP
  • Call us to get Burrial service form (required)  
  • Close the eyes of the deceased gently
  • Close the mouth of the deceased – the mouth and jaws should be tied together gently with piece of cloth
  • The body should be covered and must always remain covered with a clean sheet
  • The body should be straight
  • The feet should be tied together
  • Recite: “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un” (To Allah we belong and to Him is our return)
