May Allah guide us to carry this important Wajib and help us help the community
Whenever there is a death of a momin or momina, the first question that the family of the deceased faces is what to do and who to contact for Burial. Some of the momineens have been gracious enough to help the families of the deceased whenever the need arises. But there was dire need to have an organization that would help the family with the essentials of performing Ghusl, Providing Kafan, Arranging for Namaz-e-Janaza and Burial/Grave, assist in getting the Death certificate, Arranging for the transportation plus other related issues. The need was for an association where the family of the deceased just makes one phone call and all the other arrangements are taken care by this association.
Muslim Burial Organization of Los Angeles is based on this concept. It is a non-profit organization run by volunteers to serve the Muslim community of Greater Los Angeles. It has been established since April 2001. The idea is to have a system in place where an organized, well-trained group of volunteers can make all the arrangements in time.
