ICPC Funeral Services
“From the Earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time.”
The Islamic Center of Passaic County is dedicated in extending support and resources to families during times of difficulty.
We understand that a death can be a time of great trial and pain and can be one of the most heart-rending time in your life when bidding farewell to someone you love or care for. As Muslims, we are taught to trust Allah’s (S.W.T.) will and pray for mercy and forgiveness for the deceased. To assist you during these difficult times, the Islamic Center of Passaic County provides funeral services striving to keep the transition for loved ones as smooth as possible.
What should I do if the need arises?
Please call us at (507) 400-7504. You will be directed to the Funeral Committee. The committee members will then take care of all the related services. For any further questions, please contact our office at 973-278-7070.
As part of our funeral services, we have designated access to a Muslim graveyard at Laurel Grove Cemetery conveniently located at 295 Totowa Road in Totowa, NJ.
