Funeral Services

“Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.” – To God we belong and unto Him shall we return.

One of the hardest things we will ever have to do is say goodbye to those we love and care for.

Islam teaches Muslims to accept this ultimate fate by submitting to the wish of our Creator with patience and praying for mercy and forgiveness for the deceased.

The LMA provides funeral services for Muslims according to the Islamic funeral and burial rites and in accordance with the Australian legal requirements.

The LMA accommodates for complete Islamic funeral arrangements that include the following:

  • Transport of the deceased to the LMA Funeral Parlour
  • Washing of the deceased (this can also be done by family or loved ones if requested)
  • Wrapping of the deceased in burial shroud
  • Provision of appropriate casket
  • Transport to funeral prayer at Lakemba Mosque
  • Burial plot purchase at appropriate cemetery
  • Transport of the deceased to cemetery
  • Burial at cemetery
  • Death Certificate

The LMA ensures that when the deceased is female, the body will be respectfully cared for by female staff members. All preparations of the deceased are performed under strict Islamic guidelines.

The funeral prayer can be performed at Lakemba Mosque. All are welcome to attend the funeral prayer and accompany the deceased to the cemetery.
