The funeral home and cemetery Hamza


In 1993, the Foundation acquired a plot in Laval, North of Montreal, to accommodate an Islamic cemetery. The cemetery is named Hamza in memory of Prophet Mohammed's (P.B.U.H.) uncle. The Foundation received approval to build a funeral complex according to Muslim tradition.

The Hamza Cemetery provides the service of transporting the body of the deceased to the funeral home, the purification of the body (ghusul), the wrapping in shroud (attakfine), as well as the burying at the graveyard, all done in full respect of the Muslim and Koranic laws. Furthermore, the Foundation is committed to guide the family and relatives of the passed away individual with the procedures required to register his or her death at the Quebec Civil Status and to provide assistance and spiritual comfort to members of the mourning family.
