Muslims are always buried, never cremated. It is a religious requirement that the body is ritually washed and draped before burial, which should be as soon as possible after death. The Islamic Burial Foundation is the UK's first Islamic funeral charity which has been created with the values and teachings of the Qur'an and Sunnah in mind, by funeral directors with over 15 years of experience to support Muslim families during the bereavement process.
Our aim is to provide support to our community in hopes to alleviate some of the stresses that are otherwise unavoidable during this time allowing you to focus on moving forward by eliminating financial worries.
Our founders at T.I.B.F. are renowned and reliable, Muslim funeral directors who are aware of how increasingly expensive burying a loved one can be and the strain this can cause for the family left behind. As trusted pillars of the community, we wanted to create a burial plan driven by God that would aid and assist the Muslim population by providing flexible, monthly donations that are tailored to your needs in order to cover the cost of your funeral.
As the average cost of a traditional burial is ever-growing and has risen above £4,271, we understand, as a foundation that the average individual typically would not have these funds readily available or would struggle to accumulate such funds at the time of mourning. By choosing one of our plans we guarantee to arrange and cover the cost of the burial this includes transportation of the deceased, preparation of the departed, allocation of the burial ground and the arrangement of the deceased to be flown back to their homeland if requested.
