Reviving the rituals of Mayyit burial, step-by-step guide by DarulQuran Academy
Adherents of Islam constitute the world’s second-largest religious group.
According to statistics, the number of Muslims in Latin America is over four million, serving for example 700,000 in Argentina, and Mexico, it was 60,000 in 1990 and 111,000 in 2010, and predicted to be 126,000 in 2030.
The washing and burying of the deceased follow strict and detailed regulations in Islam.
Surah Baqarah verse 28:
كَيۡفَ تَكۡفُرُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَكُنتُمۡ أَمۡوَٰتًا فَأَحۡيَٰكُمۡۖ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمۡ ثُمَّ يُحۡيِيكُمۡ ثُمَّ إِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُونَ
“How can you disbelieve in Allah when you were lifeless and He brought you to life; then He will cause you to die, then He will bring you [back] to life, and then to Him you will be returned.”
Participants learn about essential ideas and aspects of the funeral and interment in DarulQuran Academy Islamic burial workshops.
Recently, we completed our interment course in Spanish, which was acclaimed by our users from Latin America and other Spanish-speaking countries.
Our academy held this course at the request of some Muslims from Mexico and Argentina, and by following the course, other Muslims from other countries joined this course.
Some of the course subjects that were provided for our participants are:
- Recitation of the Quran – Verses related to Ghusl Mayyit and Verses that comfort the dead person and their family members.
- Orienting Towards Qibla
- Ghusl Mayyit: The ritual of Islam for washing and shrouding the deceased before burial.
- Islamic Mourning: The rights and duties of the bereaved family and friends towards the mayyit.
- Talqin: Guide on talking (saying) the Shahada (two declarations) of faith that confirm the Sovereignty of God and the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad.
This course concluded five sessions in which we witnessed our users’ strenuous effort and participation. Furthermore, after each session, our teachers sent our users more comprehensive explanations, prayers, and voice messages.
We had a good opportunity to have a free discussion; our participants asked their related questions, and our distinguished teachers did their best to provide comprehensive answers.
Learn about Islamic funeral rites and practices in the enlightening workshops, presented by DarulQuran Academy which is open to everyone.
In Quran, Surah Ankabut verse 57 says:
كُلُّ نَفۡسٍ ذَآئِقَةُ ٱلۡمَوۡتِۖ ثُمَّ إِلَيۡنَا تُرۡجَعُونَ
“Then indeed, after that, you are to die.”
It means no matter where you go, you can not outrun death, so always follow Allah and be where God wants you to be, for this is the best for you.”
Death is unavoidable, and no one can hide from it, so you will be forced to face Allah, and whoever is faithful to Allah will gain the best reward.
