The objective of ISM Weekend Islamic School is to impart Islamic Principles and the Arabic language to the Youth of our community in an environment where they can acquire and develop a love for Allah and His Messenger and practice Islamic values. Our volunteer team includes teachers, administrative staff, curriculum board, activity organizers, and various other areas that contribute directly and indirectly to the quality and delivery of education.

Masjid holds Summer Camp for all school-age kids (boys and girls) every year. The programs are designed to help kids learn about Islam in a fun and engaging environment. Our camps also include weekly field trips. Parents’ participation is highly recommended to make this a fun activity for the whole family.

Funeral Services

 

Funeral in Islam (called Janazah in Arabic) follow fairly specific rights, though they are subject to regional interpretation and variation in customs. In all cases, sharia (Islamic religious law) calls for burial of the body, preceded by a simple ritual involving bathing and shrouding the body, followed by salah (Prayer). Try to attend the Prayer of the deceased even if you do not know him/her.

Remember that the Janazah Prayer is a standing only prayer. Like any other prayer, this Prayer is also facing the Qibla.

Masjid works with a number of local funeral homes that can arrange for the collection of the deceased from the hospital or mortuary and make arrangements for the funeral prayer and burial. These Islamic funeral homes provide a full range of funeral services, including:

  • Transporting the body from home or hospital to Masjid’s burial plot.
  • Ghusal, Kafan[shrouding], storage, and coffin for the deceased.
  • Janaza Salah
  • Assisting in obtaining a death certificate.

Masjid has burial plots for the community. These plots and full janazah services can be purchased through a one-time payment or installment plan at our masjid. Please let us know if you would like to set this up for you or a family member. Contact Us
