Burial Services

"Every soul shall taste of death, and you shall only be paid fully your reward on the Day of Judgment; then whoever is removed far away from the fire and is made to enter the garden, he indeed has attained the object; and the life of this world is nothing but a provision of vanities"
(Quran 3:185)
