Attawheed Islamic Center has acquired burial rights on 319 lots at Chartiers Cemetery located in Carnegie, just 2 miles from AIC.  AIC section is reserved for Muslims' only use and will be enclosed with fences.  This section is also treated and used as 'Green Cemetery' (eco-friendly), without a use of a casket or a concrete vault and hence cheaper and more typical to burial in Muslim countries.

We have also contracted Leo J. Henney Funeral Home in Carnegie to satisfy funeral needs that includes all transportation, and providing Ghusl facility.

AIC is seeking volunteers of both genders who can provide Ghusl service on short notice basis.  Please, contact AIC Janazah Assistance Team for further information.

  • Full name
  • Age
  • Date of birth
  • Date of death
  • Gender
  • Marital status 
  • Home address
  • Place of death and address, if available

 We require following information on the next of kin of the deceased:
