Ga.'s First Muslim Funeral Home Opens Quietly In Norcross
Imam Abdullah Jaber, the leader of Masjid Omar near Lilburn in Gwinnett County, said if there are enough Muslims living in an area, there’s a responsibility on that community to properly care for the dead.
“If a person has an individual obligation, if they don’t do it, they’re sinful,” Jaber said. “A communal obligation: if nobody does it, everybody’s held sinful.”
With the opening of Janaza Services of Georgia, Atlanta-area Muslims now have one funeral home and three cemeteries.
A Muslim Funeral Home
The idea for the funeral home began with a question Siddiqui’s friend asked him four years ago.
“Why not start our own Muslim funeral home? But they need some support, somebody can volunteer himself,” Siddiqui said. “So I said, ‘I’m the one – because I’m already involved in that and I know more than anybody else knows, and now I’m in a position I can serve the community as they deserve it.”
The 7,500 square foot funeral home includes 4,500 square feet of office space and a 3,000 square feet warehouse. Janaza Services of Georgia opened with little fanfare or controversy.
And Siddiqui said he’s willing to advise the imam looking to open a funeral home in Newton County.
The intense hate speech around the proposal there upset Atlanta-area Muslims, said Jaber:
“I just think it’s the rhetoric that affects people’s mindsets, but once people sit down, discuss and understand on an intellectual level, there shouldn’t be any problem.”
Katoot said she’s optimistic.
“I’m from Kentucky. They run maybe 50 years behind time, so everything out of the ordinary is not accepted, very similar to what we’re seeing in Newton County,” Katoot said. “People are fearful for lack of knowledge and they don’t like change. They want everything to be the same. It will take time and a lot of education.”
Jaber explained that even during the washing, the body is kept mostly covered and thoroughly cleaned multiple times with soap and water.
“As a Muslim, we are taught respect towards the deceased,” Jaber said. “Prophet Muhammad taught us: do not hasten in a manner where you may be causing discomfort to the deceased. According to our theology, the deceased is able to hear and feel what’s happening. So they have moved on to another realm, but there’s still some sort of attachment.”
As a nonprofit community project, funeral director Ahmad Rashad said he plans to charge customers $1,000 for the basic service and will offer financial assistance to poor families.
“At this particular time, when death comes, people are in duress,” he said. “Most competitors are worse than what I would call a lawyer, they just charge you too much. Funeral services have gotten like that, it’s gotten out of control price-wise. Our mission is to serve Muslims and every other community and give them a good service and a good price.”
Rashad said the next step for the funeral home is to work with the Green Burial Council to offer green burials. The council certifies funeral homes that offer green burials and environmentally sustainable death care.
