I confirm that I have contacted and engaged the services of MFS to act on my behalf, including the pick-up of the deceased, arranging the Council grave bookings, and washing and shrouding of the Deceased.
I understand that I will have to arrange for the Cause of Death Certificate to be issued by the treating Doctor.
I understand that MFS is a Not for Profit entity, and engages the services of Volunteers and Employees for some of its services.
MFS will conduct the service in a dignified, professional manner, within the Sunni Islamic principles.
MFS vehicles / hearses are not traditional hearses, but 'transfer vehicles' and are used for all transfers and the funeral process.
The washing and many services may be provided by a group of volunteers who may not be a part of the Company, but volunteer for the sake of and the pleasure of Allah SWT (God), as part of their faith, under the supervision of MFS Directors.
The washing, shrouding and funeral prayer will usually take place at the Kuraby Mosque facility.
In Islam the funeral and burial process is a community responsibility, so it is traditional that members of the Muslim Community, who are unrelated to the Company or family, may assist at various stages of the process for the sake of their Islamic responsibility and duty.
The family and Next of Kin are encouraged to partake in the entire process in keeping with the burial rites in Islam.
Please advise us of any specific requests.
The washing (Ghusl) facility is a designated area for access by the immediate family / those involved in the washing process. The family must advise if they would prefer to perform the washing themselves or assist in the process.
After the Deceased is washed and shrouded, members of the immediate family may attend and be at the side of the deceased, either within the facility or an area arranged within the mosque precinct.
There is no designated 'Chapel' area for mourners. The funeral prayer is usually outside of the actual mosque area and may be at the section of the Mosque called the ‘Sehen’; outdoors in the car park of the Mosque or at the Cemetery as arranged.
There are no pallbearers in Islam. Members of the family assisted by members of the community assist with moving the Bier of the deceased. This is usually outside the control of MFS or it’s Director or volunteers. If you would like to nominate specific male members of the family please notify us, but make arrangements to ensure that they be there at the appropriate time.
The entire process including time of pick up, washing, prayer and burial has been confirmed and agreed upon between myself and the MFS team.
The burial time can only be confirmed once we have possession of the deceased’s Janaza, and have confirmation from Council regarding the grave availability.
The local Councils charge additional fees for burials after hours and weekends. These are outside our control and we are not responsible for any delays outside of our control for whatever reason, and the family of the deceased is responsible for these additional fees.
