In accordance with tradition, we understand that no embalming is to take place. Cost is to be kept minimal. If burial cannot take place soon after the death, Crain has refrigeration facilities available to so the prayers and burial can be delayed to accommodate those who must travel. Crain has facilities in the tri-state area for washing and wrapping of the deceased, and will transfer to the site for funeral prayers, in the most modestly priced wood coffin available. Burial will follow in Al Baqih, with a bottomless polypropylene vault, no metal whatsoever. Prior to burial, the body will be turned to face Mecca , and in accordance with Muslim protocol a modest marker may be placed at the final resting place, and this can be arranged through Crain Funeral Home.
