“To Allah, we belong, and to Him is our return.” (Qur’an 2:156)

We all lead different lives. We all do not experience the same things in life. But there is one event that will definitely take place in everyone’s life – death.

Your loved ones will not stay in this world forever but do you know what to do when they are in their last moments? Would you know how to bathe them and make preparations for their burial? This course will help you prepare for the inevitable.

Every Muslim striving to practice Islam correctly and looking to increase his/her attachment to the Hereafter, this course will help you give your loved ones the final farewell according to the Sunnah of the beloved Messenger of Allah ﷺ.
