Funeral Services

 

Islam, as a comprehensive mode of existence, addresses both life and death. Death in Islam is not an end, but a passage where we are led from the terrestrial world to the hereafter. Our deeds in this life have a direct bearing on our experience in the one that follows. Preparation for this passage is hence, a lifetime’s work, and believers are strongly obliged to take this task seriously. While death’s inevitability is something we often tend to ignore, it is a truth that will need to be dealt with eventually.

ICCNC has purchased burial sites at Chapel of the Chimes in Hayward, California in the Muslim Section.  The burial sites are for sale to the Community.  You can also purchase the sites in advance and by financing your purchase through ICCNC. The Center provides complete funeral services.
