 FUNERAL HOME RESTRICTIONS UPDATE

March 22, 2020 

Islamic Burial Services, LLC is open for business.  We are committed to offering our families the best quality of care.  The health and safety of the community and our staff is our top priority. We are closely monitoring and staying informed on the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention {CDC}, NJ Department of Health {NJDOH}, the World Health Organization {WHO} and the National Funeral Directors Association {NFDA} 

We are taking necessary safety precautions to adhere to the Governor’s orders regarding funeral homes.  Below is a list of the limited services we are permitted to perform.   Removals ~ Funeral homes can remove the decease from the place of death. 

Arrangements~ It is suggested that we conduct funeral arrangements over the telephone with the next of kin or arrange to meet at the funeral home with 1-2 family members.  

Preparation of decease~ We are permitted to prepare the body.  (Wash and Shroud for Muslims and Wash and Dress for Non-Muslims). 

Visitation~ No more than 2 family members are permitted to have a brief visitation 

Islamic Funeral prayer~ My staff and the 1-2 family members will perform the Janazah prayer over the deceased Muslim at the funeral home.  We will also post on Facebook our announcement scroll to notify the Muslims at-large to make Salatul-Ghaib (prayer for the person without the body present) for the person in their home. 

Places of worship~ We can NOT take the decease to the Masjid for Muslim or Church for Christians.   

Cemetery restrictions~ Certain cemeteries are only allowing the funeral director and the decease to go to the cemetery for burial.  Others are allowing 1-2 families to accompany the funeral director and the decease for burial.  When you call to make arrangements, we will inform you. 

To report a death: 

o   We offer 24-hour, 7 day a week service.  Please call 973-484-1494 either one of our funeral directors will answer or our answering service will promptly connect you to your funeral director, Sister Hawwah.
