Janazah Certification Workshop
A Summer Intensive
When: Saturday, July 19, 10:30am – 6:30pm
Where: Dar-us-Salaam, College Park, MD
This class will cover in-depth the details of death in Islam, preparations for the funeral, the proper burial and shrouding of the dead and other topics such as preparing a wasiyyah (a will).
A Certificate of Competency will be presented upon successful completion of written test and practical exam, and qualifies one to assist with janazah preparations (washing and shrouding). Those who receive certification will be eligible to be on-call after a death and to help with the janazah.
The class is free. It will be led by Br. Safi Khan, Imam of Dar-us-Salaam. Janazah kits will be available for purchase for $60. To register, please email: janazah at LearnAboutIslam.org. Registration is required.
