Muslim burials during the pandemic

Working with the Blackburn Muslim Burial Society (BMBS) and Lancashire Council of Mosques (LCM), we have produced a video about the extra precautions being taken to carry out Muslim burials safely during the pandemic.

It offers advice for bereaved families on keeping themselves safe during the mourning period that follows a death, with advice on adhering to the rule of having no more than 30 people at a funeral and not allowing visitors to the home.

The video is available in four languages:
