When Someone Passes Away Islam?
- Voleta Ducharme
When someone who is Muslim passes away, there’s a traditional mourning period for three days afterward. Family and friends may pay condolence visits with gifts like fruit baskets or a dried fruit and nut basket like this one, baked goods like a cookie platter or gourmet breads or muffins, or meals that can be reheated.
Those present when the person passes should continue tradition by saying “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un”. This means “Verily we belong to Allah, and truly to Him shall we return” and is a must for all Muslims who have since passed from this world.

The best approach is to either contact a local Muslim authority or ask the family what they prefer. Muslims believe that at death, they are buried and remain in their grave until the day of judgement. Good Muslims will go to paradise and experience peace.
