كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ۗ وَنَبْلُوكُمْ بِالشَّرِّ وَالْخَيْرِ فِتْنَةً ۖ وَإِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ - سورة الأنبياء
Every soul will taste death ۗ And We will test you with evil and good as a trial And to Us you will be returned - Al Anbiya
With Allah's grace, Yaseen Foundation developed a compassionate service to help our community members ease the difficult moment of losing a loved one and fulfill our Islamic duties. Post funeral services, Yaseen provides its facilities to Yaseen Members to host condolence receptions.
AlhamduliAllah, we offer Yaseen Members use of the Yaseen Belmont Masjid or Yaseen Burlingame Center to host condolence receptions for one night up to three hours free of rental charges. We only request a deposit to cover staff and cleaning at cost. This is on condition the deceased is an immediate family member (grandparent, parent, sibling, children) of the host (must be an active member of Yaseen Foundation.
Facility use terms apply. The host of the reception receives the current terms and signs an agreement before the condolence reception. Mind you hosting a condolences reception at the YBC require staff to handle the setup, tear down, and cleaning.
Under current condolences use terms only water, coffee and dates are allowed indoors. Food is prohibited at Yaseen condolence receptions until further notice.
When performing the duty of offering condolences please observe the following etiquettes:
