What to do when a loved one passes away?
Who. When disaster strikes them. Say. “Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return”
Dealing with the death of a loved one is one of the greatest trials in a person's lifetime. However, the teachings of Islam on life and death are clear. We are all mortals and death is a gateway to the hereafter. Islam teaches us the methods by which we deal with the passing of our fellow human beings and rules by which we have to conduct the appropriate practices of prayer, preparation and burial. The Qur’an stresses the inevitability of death for all living things, emphasises the fleeting nature of this world, and underlines the need for Taqwa (God-consciousness.)
In LGM, we aim to help Muslims passing this difficulty. Despite we do not provide a funeral service, we recommend one service provider in Leeds:
