What to do at the time of a Death
We understand that this must be a very difficult time for you and your family and it is our duty to ensure we assist you with the preparations of a funeral and fulfilling the burial rites of the deceased.
- Please contact one of the abovenamed individuals when a death occurs.
- Please notify the JFSC Chairman (Br. Mubarak Mamdani) when the Dr. has signed the ‘Medical Certificate of Death’ (also known as Form 16)
- At this time, please also request the doctor/nurse to remove all foreign objects and keep the hands and legs of the deceased straight, and close the eyes if possible.
- The next of kin would then need to take some time in assisting us with completing the ‘Statement of Death’ (also known as Form 15)
- To better prepare, please refer to the Blank Form 15 on this page.
- Volunteers will then proceed to obtain the Burial Permit to continue with the burial arrangements.
- For Ghusl/Kafan, 2 of our volunteers will be present and you may have up to 3 family members (same gender as the deceased) also participate. If the deceased had kept aside their own Kafan, please bring this along. If not, our committee will provide the Kafan.
- Please advise the Funeral Committee Chairman on the choice of cemetery (listed below).
- The Mukhi (Director of Centre) will advise of any associated costs for the funeral, if applicable.
For any other information and/or queries, please email [email protected] or call our Secretariat Office at 905.695.9786
