Funeral and Memorial services are sensitive occasions that balance religious requirements and emotional needs. IHW works closely with families to accommodate details of the funeral and memorial service for your departed loved one, as desired by the family. We are ready to help facilitate communication between the funeral homes and cemeteries to ensure that the transition of laying your beloved one to rest is done with sensitivity and ease on the family.
IHW offers the most personalized services where families can invite the speaker and reciter of their preference along with choosing the language for it to be held in including English, Arabic, Persian, and Urdu.
Before/during/after services, IHW will provide appropriate space for family meetings and visitations.
For national and international transfers of your beloved one, we know that the legal paperwork and travel arrangements can take some time. Our new double refrigeration unit located in our Islamic maghsal allows for use as long that is needed while families may take advantage of the location to gather daily/nightly for additional majlis and prayers.
IHW does not wish to put any financial burden on families at a time of a funeral and memorial. It is up to the families to bless themselves and their departed loved one by supporting the mosque based on their intention and ability.
While the time of our departure is unknown, one thing that is certain in life is that we all will meet our Lord! IHW is ready to help walk you through planning of your Islamic will, which will one day represent your wishes for your loved ones that you leave behind to fulfill. Appointments can be arranged through the office.
(Islamic Ritual Washing Area for the Deceased)
The washing and shrouding of a Muslim deceased is an important religious requirement. It involves specific steps and rituals. To ensure proper preparation of our departed loved ones, the Islamic House of Wisdom (IHW) recently completed the first official Muslim maghsel (Islamic ritual washing area for the deceased) in Southeast Michigan.
The maghsel is a place where the body is blessed with ghosl and shrouded according to religious rituals with the utmost privacy, respect and care for the deceased and their family. This service including materials needed to wash and to cover with kafan (shroud) is a religious duty and free of charge. The family members have the option to perform the washing/dressing procedure or leave it for IHW trained faithful to fulfill the responsibility on behalf of the family.
