Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati (ICGC)

Funeral Arrangements

“To Allah we belong and to Him is our return.”

At the time of calamity the following steps can be helpful for making the funeral  and burial arrangements  for the deceased:

  1. As soon as death occurs in the family someone must call Schaefer-Busby-Mooney Funeral Home (513-241-0932) OR Mueller Funeral Home (513-398-9100), and they will make arrangements to remove the body and take to the Funeral Home.
  2.  Call Br. Tanveer (513-779-3611) or Br. Alvi (513-706-8470) or Br. Serry (513-309-6202) or Br. Asif (513-748-9424) for help. Br. Imtiaz (513-861-2154) or Br. Basil (513-201-7196) for male Jinazah and Sr. Hafiza (513-871-3477) for female Jinazah will assist in  preparing the body for burial.
  3. Call the Islamic Center (513-755-3280) and let them know about the death and Jinazah arrangements for prayers. The Center needs a directive from the family whether they would or would not like an announcement made to the community.  Announcements can be emailed to: info@cincinnatiislamiccenter.org
  4. Schaefer-Busby-Mooney OR Mueller Funeral Home will make arrangements with Crown Hill Cemetery for burial and provide information about the total cost for the services.
  5. The current breakdown of the cost will be as follows:
    Burial Package
    Opening and Closing of Grave
    Cost of Burial Space
    Donation to ICGC (Includes Kaffin Cloth)
    Total
    = $1,750.00
    = $1,171.00
    = $850.00
    = $200.00
    = $ 3,971.00*

*The total cost for burial services are subject to change from time to time and total amount must be paid to the Funeral Home at the time of the service.

Note: It is the responsibility of the family to wash the body for burial preparation. The funeral home will be able to assist in this process.
