Every human being brought to life in this world by the Creator will return to their Creator. The deceased is dependent upon fellow Muslims from the time of death to provide assistance to deliver the correct funeral rites according to the Quran and Sunnah. There is a great reward to whosoever offers this service and is recognised as a community obligation (when it is fulfilled by one, the rest of the group are excused and if performed in an incorrect manner they will be accountable to Allah). Unfortunately, for many years, Muslims who are involved in the funeral service business are ignorant of the correct Islamic teachings and appear to implement innovated practices. They appear to be heavily motivated by generating a profit via a funeral service rather than ensuring that the funeral rites are performed in accordance with the Sunnah.
Alhamdulillah, The GLM Funeral service is blessed to have a dedicated and professional team. The team consists of volunteer brothers and sisters who assist with the Ghusl, transportation and bereavement aspect of the service. The service is managed by a full-time manager who is accompanied by the masjids six Imams who are available for the funeral prayer as well as Islamic guidance at such a difficult time.
