Repatriation Of The Deceased

It must be understood that the pure Shariah emphasises that the dead be buried as soon as possible regardless of the land they may be in, unless there may be fear of the desecration of their bodies. To delay the burial just so that the deceased may be buried in another country is causing unnecessary pain to the dead person. Whenever the Sahabah would die in far off lands, they would rarely if ever be transported back to their original homes, even though in their case they came from the best places in the world i.e. Macca and Medinah. Thus we find their graves scattered all over the world in a plethora of distant places where they had gone to spread their religion. HCM cannot currently facilitate burials abroad, as an embalming certificate (the art and science of preserving human remains by treating them to forestall decomposition) is required and can only be issued by authorised funeral directors. Embalming Certificate is mandatory for transportation of the dead body to Pakistan. Hendon Mosque Funeral Service are the nearest authorised funeral directors who offer this service.
