Harvey Muslim Cemetery Project

As salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

Dear community members,
Hope you and family are doing well. Alhamdulillah, I am reaching out to you with a great news! The long wait for a Muslim cemetery in Chicagoland area has come to an end!
American Muslim Cemetery
Alhamdulillah, Our organization, Center for Islamic Teachings and Community Development ( CITCD ) , was successful in getting zoning approval for an exclusive Muslim Religious cemetery in Lynwood, IL.
Just 15 minutes from our current Free Muslim funeral facility in Harvey, we have 31 acre land under contract right off the I-394
at 1120 East Joe Orr Road , Lynwood,IL-60411.

Alhamdulillah zoning approved for Green Muslim Burials.

  • No need for cement liners or caskets
  • Can bury fully according to Sunnah.
  • It will be run free of charge for all Muslims- on the model of a Masjid!

We can be open from 5 am to 11 pm, so we can even accommodate early morning (after Fajr) or late evening (after Isha) burials as soon as possible after the death in accordance with the Sunnah.

Moreover, this project will save the Ummah 58 million dollars over next few decades!

Please visit www.americanmuslimcemetery.com for details of the project.

Target amount to raise is 1.3 million dollars by October 15th 2021 In Shaa Allah.

Humbly request your Duas and generous support for taking this project for completion.

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
