Masjid Usman has a well-equipped mortuary to perform washing (ghusl) and prepare the body for burial.
The Coordinator or a PIC representative will accompany the next of kin/family member to the hospital and fulfill all the documents for the release of the body.
Thereafter, the deceased body (mayyit) will be brought in to the Centre for ghusl, preparation, and salatul janazah. It will then be transported to the cemetery for burial. If the next of kin or close family members wish their loved one to be buried in another cemetery, the Centre can make the required arrangements.
Pickering Islamic Centre will issue a “Proof of Death Certificate” (Temporary) to the family of deceased person. This certificate may be required for the settlement of legal issues such as bank accounts, insurance claims, inheritance, etc. The next of Kin is required to apply for a legal “Death Certificate” via Service Ontario.
Pickering Islamic Centre has developed a Funeral Support Planner and a Funeral Support Guide to help community enhance their knowledge on funeral related matters. We have covered religious and government information on the topic.
