Rockford Muslim Cemetery Project

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

“Surely to Allah we belong and to Him we will ˹all˺ return.” 2:245

The burial of the deceased is our collective obligation (farḍ kifāyah) failure of which we the Muslim community will be guilty if not buried per Sharia, unless the burial was beyond the knowledge/capacity.

With that in mind The Muslim Funeral Home of Rockford a 503©️ non-profit organization initiated to buy a 10 acres land providing funeral and burial services for estimated 2,000 burial @ $2000 and at No-Cost for deserving Muslims compared to average national cost of $5,000 each burial. “The believer’s soul is attached to his debt until it is paid,” – Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.)

Alhamdulillah the earnest money for 10 acres of land has been paid. We seek donations to buy InshAllah this land for $150,000 (pending zoning).

The donations are Zakat eligible and payments can be made through

Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply if to him many times over 2:245[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
