Masjid Vaughan Funeral Fund
at Masjid Vaughan
Phase 1 Goal: $100K
*Tax receipt granted for all donations
In honour of the Malik family and their late father (may Allah have Mercy on his soul), Masjid Vaughan is planning a much-needed funeral service for the Muslim community of the Greater Toronto Area, in-sha-Allah. Praise be to Allah, a generous donation from the family has enabled Risalah Foundation to initiate the Malik Endowment. The initial donation and all subsequent donations to this endowment will be used exclusively for developing, launching and sustaining an exceptional funeral service at Masjid Vaughan.
Ruling in Sacred Law
Currently, the City of Vaughan does not have a one-stop funeral service solution for the Sunni Muslim Community. Hence, by establishing this service together, we are fulfilling a Communal Obligation (Fard Kifaya) for the City of Vaughan and surrounding areas.
Vision & Scope
The Funeral Service at Masjid Vaughan aims to provide the best resources, guidance and assistance to families preparing their deceased for Islamic burial, in a way that is uncomplicated and compassionate. This full-solution funeral service will provide support in the following areas:
Multi-institutional coordination and logistics;
Registration of the Death and Death Certificates;
Coffin Preparation & Purchase;
Transportation to Masjid for Refrigeration;
Coordination with Cemetery Grounds & Purchase of Plot;
Ritual Washing of the Deceased (Ghusl);
Ritual Shrouding of the Deceased (Kafan)
Ritual Funeral Prayer (Janaza);
Receiving Family Guests and/or Non-Muslims at the Masjid;
Transportation to Cemetery Grounds and;
Ritual Procedures at the Burial Site.
*Grand Opening: January 2022
The Malik Endowment is an inspired initiative that closely reflects the wishes of a community leader and pioneer of great works globally; our late Uncle R. Malik (may Allah have mercy on his soul). We encourage the community to support this unique project by donating to the fund with the intention that it becomes an enduring charity (sadaqa jariya) benefitting us all in the afterlife.
