Ministering Christ to Muslims in Times of Grief
2023 Vol. 3: May/June
All cultures incorporate funeral rites as a societal structure to enable people to process the trauma caused by death. These rites provide an avenue for mourning and processing grief and sorrow. Generally speaking, Islam practices the following funerary rites. If at all possible, the body is buried the same day of death, but certainly within 24 hours. They carefully observe an elaborate washing and preparation process of the deceased person’s body.
