The locally established Muslim Funeral Services available in Northamptonshire strictly according to the Qur’an and Sunnah
Al-Iman Funeral Services was established in order to carry out of the rites and ritual needs of Muslims at the time of someone passing away. We felt that in order for the Muslim burial to be fully conducted in compliance with shariah, a Muslim funeral service was needed in order to accommodate that. Currently the only option for Muslims with regards to burials was to use established existing funeral directors. These organisations were either not aware of Muslim needs or do not offer the facilities that Muslims would require. Or alternatively to request the service of Muslim directors outside Northamptonshire.
Al-Iman Funeral services is fully complete and also flexible in providing funeral services for Muslims in Northamptonshire and neighbouring counties and also supporting remaining family members in arranging the funeral of their loved ones. Al-iman also takes care of any deceased Muslims that have left no next of kin and have made no funeral preparation as in principle it is our duty to support our fellow Muslims.
The service is available in flexible packages to suit the needs of requesting customers according to their needs. Full services include paperwork, transport, washing, shrouding, funeral prayer performed and burial.
