Sunday School Do you know your Moorish Rites?

Join us this Sunday School as NGSK: Taj Tarik Bey & NGSKS: Durriyyah Bey help us to understand thwe importance of our moorish Rites

Funerals in Islam (calledJanazah in Arabic) follow fairly specific rites, though they are subject to regional interpretation and variation in custom. In all cases, however, sharia (Islamic religious law) calls for burial of the body as soon as possible, preceded by a simple ritual involving bathing and shrouding the body,

  1. Salah (prayer) followed by our Moorish American Prayer. Cremation or Burial is usually within 24 hours of death to protect the living from any unsanitary issues, except in the case of a person killed in battle or when foul play is suspected; in those cases it is important to determine the cause of death before burial. Cremation of the body is strictly forbidden in Islam.
  2. Burial rituals should normally take place as soon as possible and include:
  3. Collective bathing of the dead bodyexcept in extraordinary circumstances as in battle of Uhud
  4.   Enshrouding dead body in a white cotton or linen cloth
  5.  Funeral prayer
  6.  Cremation or Burial of the dead body in a grave.
  7.  Positioning the deceased so that the head is faced towards Mecca (Makkah Al-Mukarramah).
