They are certified by the State of California to pick up body and bring it to us for burial. They take the body from anywhere. The day of burial the family members go to the Mortuary and give Ghusal / wash relative’s body.
The Muslim Mortuary provides one person to help with the washing. The rest are family members. They need at least three family members. Usually family members give $100 to the volunteer who helps in bathing.
The Mortuary will deal with Hospital for body release, They will work with Coroners Office to get the Certificate.
We pray to Allah that you take the opportunity and donate generously to help paying the expenses of the project and offer free service to the poor and remember that the Prophet (PBUH) said “Whoever offers a Muslim a grave will be rewarded the equivalent of a house for him until the day of judgment.” In case you can’t donate, tell another Muslim who can.
