Process

Purchase for Immediate Burial

When you contact us we will explain the process, guide you through all required paper work and scheduling. It is required that you must have Power of Attorney over the deceased and be available 24x7 during the process.

Step 1: Contact Mohsin Beg or Ezzeldin (Dean) Abualhasan via (650) 200-8582 any time 24 x 7. In according with Hadith and Sharia, burial should be done within 48 hours of death. Family, relatives or friends who wish to participate in ghusul, janazah and dafan MUST be present within that timeframe.

Step 2
: We will then contact Crippen and Flynn to start the transportation process. You will need to complete and sign their necessary legal and release documents with them. To start the transportation process you must also provide the deceased’s:
- Legal Name
- Date of Birth
- Social Security Number
- Location
- Weight


Step 3: Crippen and Flynn may require you to remain at the Location until the deceased is picked up. You will need to coordinate with them directly on this after our introduction.

Step 5: You will meet Yaseen Garden same day or next day and bring
- a check in the total amount due and
- signed Interment Rights Agreement Contract.


Step 6: We will coordinate a time for you to meet Skylawn representative and sign necessary documents for burial, including paying any weekend/overtime costs associated with burial (e.g. holiday or long weekends).
- Without this in-person meeting with Skylawn we CANNOT do BURIAL or GHUSUL or confirm JANAZAH schedule.
- You must have Power of Attorney when meeting Skylawn.


Step 7: Yaseen Garden will confirm Ghusul, typically for 11am on the same day of burial.

Step 8: Crippen and Flynn will transport the deceased to the Belmont Masjid (or Belmont Sports Complex if Friday) for Salat-ul-Janazah, typically 1pm.

Step 9: Crippen and Flynn will transport the deceased to Skylawn Memorial Park for burial, typically scheduled for 2pm.

If the death occurred over the weekend, contact the doctor or hospital to determine if the hospital can store the body and contact us immediately. Please note that a death certificate must be obtained prior to burial from the County office. Most County offices are open only during weekdays and for a few hours on Saturday. In the event of death on weekend, the burial may have to wait until Monday afternoon.

Note : It typically takes about 6 hours to make all the arrangements at a minimum (obtain death certificate, open the grave, arrange the transportation). As such the arrangements will be typically made for burial the next day. Yaseen Foundation also offers financial help to families who’ve lost loved ones and are having financial difficulties covering the costs. If your family finds itself in that situation, please lets us know in confidence.

Purchase for Future Burial

Step 1: Contact Mohsin Beg or Ezzeldin (Dean) Abualhasan via (650) 200-8582 for details or to schedule an in person meeting.

Step 2:
Once you’ve decided to purchase the plot(s), schedule a meeting with us and bring a check in the total amount due and copy of signed Interment Rights Agreement Contract.

Step 3:
Identify the plot locations of your preference. We will confirm the allocation for your contract in our in-person meeting.

Step 4:
After your payment is fully processed, a signed pdf copy of Interment Rights Agreement Contract will be emailed to you. You should keep this contract with your Wills and Trust documentation and/or with your survivor(s) so it can provided to Yaseen Foundation when needed.

Step 5:
Optionally contact us for Ghusul and Transporation if and when there is a loss in your family, if not bought as part of your contract.
