Funeral Services – Islamic Society of Baltimore

Funeral Services

ISB stands by to serve our community in times of grief. We offer our sincere condolences to you and your family, and we aim to make the janazah process as smooth as possible for you in your time of need

Through our partnership with King Memorial Park, we have a exclusive Muslim burial section. We offer complete supervision of the entire burial process listed below:

  • Coordination with hospital and/or family
  • Transportation of deceased to the funeral home / washing location
  • Washing of the body according to Islamic rituals and traditions
  • Janazah prayers at Masjid Al-Rahmah
  • Leading funeral procession to King Memorial
  • Supervision of burial services at King Memorial

Next steps and what to expect:

  1. Complete the online funeral request form.
  2. After the form and payment is submitted, the family will be contacted by a member of our funeral staff.
  3. The funeral home director will then coordinate when and where to pick up the body and take it to the funeral home for Ghusl (washing). ISB can assist with the washing process if the family is unfamiliar or unavailable.
  4. Once the Ghusl (washing) of the body is completed at the funeral home, the body will then be transported to the Masjid hall for Janazah prayers.
    • Janazah services are normally held after Dhuhr or Asr prayer. If the washing is completed too late in the day, the Janazah will be scheduled for the following day.
  5. After Janazah prayers, the body will then be transported by the funeral home to King Memorial Park cemetery for burial.
