Meeting of Islamic Burial Council of South Africa at IPCI


The Islamic Burial Council of South Africa met in late May to discuss challenges faced by burial societies. The discussion was with a specific focus on verifying the Muslim identity of the deceased at the time of burial. This is especially related to reverts and foreigners. If a person wants to have a Muslim burial, then authorities need to specify or validate this at a central point.


There were about fifty people in attendance from various Burial societies. Presentations were made by Chairman of the Burial Council Ahmed Paruk, and IPCI Director Mahmood Amra.

A working decision was made to send out messages or draft a Jumuah message to be read out in mosque or advertised in newspapers. This is to be finalized.
