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 Spring Grove Funeral Home (513-853-1037) OR Mueller Funeral Home (513-398-9100), and they will make arrangements to remove the body and take to the Funeral Home.
  2. Make a call to 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) Br. Abdul Saboor (513-203-7252) for male Jinazah and Sr. Hafiza (513-871-3477) or Sr. Wardha Safdar (513-260-9342) or Sr. Adila (513-371-1521) for female Jinazah will assist for preparation of the body for burial.
  3. Make a call to 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 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.
  • The current breakdown of the cost will be as follows:
  • Spring Grove/Muller- Burial Package = $1750.00
  • Opening and Closing of Grave = $1500.00
  • Cost of Burial Space = $850.00
  • Donation to ICGC (Includes Kaffin Cloth) = $200.00

Saturday Burials: 9 AM to 12 Noon Additional cost of $100.00/ per burial

12am to 3PM – $ 300 per burial-(Triple charges on Sundays or after 3:30 PM on any other day).
