Event description


Assalāmu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh

An exclusive event for the sisters to benefit from this workshop, here in SCOTLAND. Jamīatul Mumināt presents "the FUNERAL RITES" workshop delivered by a team of experienced Ālimāt in English.

We all lead different lives. We do not all experience the same things in life. But there is one event that will definitely take place in everyone’s life – death.

Your loved ones will not stay in this world forever but do you know what to do when they are in their last moments? Would you know how to bathe them and make preparations for their burial? This course will help you prepare for the inevitable.

  • How can I benefit my dear mother after her death?
  • What are the procedures of burial?
  • What to do when visiting the graveyard?

You will find answers to these questions and more in the “The Funeral Rites” course.
