Janaza ( Islamic Burial) Service
Islam encourages its adherence to consider and be prepare for death with virtuous deeds. A companion of the Prophet once asked:
“O Prophet of Allah, who is the most sagacious and the most prudent among the people?”
The Prophet replied;
“Those who are most aware of death and prepare themselves for it. They are the wisest of people and will have honour in this world and a generous reward in the Hereafter”.

When is the deceased buried?
Under normal circumstances, if a plot is available the deceased is buried within 24 hours. If the deceased dies late on a Friday, on the weekend or a public holiday then the burial costs charged by the cemetery increases hence the family may elect to wait until the next working day. In addition, delays may occur if the government requires an autopsy.
What is the cost of the Janaza Burial Service?
As there are costs incurred in the burial, such as the plot, use of the hearse and preparation of the deceased for burial, the Janaza Burial Service is not free. The fees are the responsibility of the deceased’s family although in some cases, it may be covered by insurance.
The cost of the Janaza Burial Service varies according to the cemetery used and the burial time.
