There are many expenditures related to funeral and burial services. Alhamdulillah we, the Muslims in Calgary are the first in North America to establish a Muslim cemetery that allows us to bury our loved ones according to the Sunnah (Islamic traditions) as Allah intended. There is a cost recovery fee for this service that will be discussed with the funeral committee who can arrange payment. If deceased was on AISH or Social Security please notify the funeral committee. The cost of a headstone is $800 and MUST be supplied by the Masjid. Headstones are optional, if you are interested in ordering one please speak to a member of the funeral committee.

Location of grave: If you are having difficulty finding the location of your loved ones grave please contact one of the funeral committee members for assistance
