“Oh my people, this worldly life is only temporary enjoyment, and indeed, the hereafter is the home of permanent settlement” – Quran 40:39
Al-Marhama is the only sharia-compliant funeral & burial service in Massachusetts.

In addition, the service also secures the burial permit, secures the death certificate, opens and closes the grave as well as transports the deceased between the hospital or home, the washing facility and the grave.
