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 it is facilities to Yaseen Members to host condolence receptions.
AlhamduliAllah, we offers Yaseen Members use of Belmont Masjid or YBC to host condolence receptions for 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 a immediate family member (grand parent, parent, sibling, children) of the host who need to be a Yaseen active Member. (Yaseen active Member requirement will be enforced starting from the Ramadan 1443/2022 InShaAllah)
Facility use and COVID-19 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, check-in and enforcement of use policies.
Under current COVID-19 health safety terms only water is allowed indoors. Masks are required all the time and before entering the facility. Chairs are positioned to maintain required physical distancing. Please don't move chairs or request more chairs. Staff are instructed to not give additional chairs. Food is prohibited at Yaseen condolence receptions at all times even post COVID-19. If you want to follow the Sunna, please provide food for the immediate family at their home privately.
