Funeral Strategy

Glasgow Central Mosque have been working closely with government officials, local authorities and the NHS to understand the burial process during these difficult and unprecedented times.  We wanted to compile a policy which will allow the Muslim community to bury their members in a manner fulfilling the Islamic etiquettes.

There have been concerns raised with regards to cremation. This is not now, nor was it at any stage a possibility in Scotland due to a devolved directive protecting the rights of religious faith groups to have the choice of burying their loved ones. The recent law change in England sees England effectively come into line with the position in Scotland.

We will endeavor to guide and lead the Muslim community in Scotland through this difficult period and all we ask of you, is your support. Guidelines regarding the funeral (Janaza) process have been put together based on current directives, which may change over the coming days and weeks but we will keep you informed as appropriate.
