The World Federation India Office conducts Ahkam-e Mayyit Workshop

The World Federation India Office in partnership with KSI Jamaat Mumbai conducted Workshops on Ahkam-e Mayyit on 9 February 2014 for gents and ladies. The Workshops were well attended by 45 participants. There were a few participants who were as young as 15 years of age.
The workshop aims were to give practical training to the participants on:
• How to handle a Dead Body with Respect
• How to conduct Ghusl, Hunut, Kafan
• How to conduct Namaz-e Mayyit, and Burial
• The rules concerning Post-Burial
The session for gents was conducted by Sayyid Ehsan Haider Jawadi who is the principal of Hawza Jamiat Fatima (sa) in Mira Road and the ladies session was conducted by Zakera Nahed Rezwan who is a teacher at Ladies Hawza at Najafi House in Mumbai.


All the participants gained practical experience of performing Ghusl, Hunut, Kafan and burial. The participants were able to clarify and dispel lots of myths and misconceptions.

A volunteer group has been formed wherein the students of the workshop have agreed to come forward to look after the death rituals of deceased community members.
