BMF CEMETERY

This site is has been acquired to establish an independent cemetery to meet the religious needs of the Muslim Community. The site is located only 8 miles from Birmingham City centre. It is at planning stage now. You are humbly requested to pray for its success. 

The system of natural burial is as ancient as the human race. According to Islamic, Jewish and Biblical texts, the very first burial took place during the life of Prophet Adam and Hawa (Eve), peace be upon them.   

In Surah Al-Ma’eedah, verse 28-31 of the Holy Qur’an Allah (SWT) mentioned the incident of the burial of one of the sons of Adam.

“Then Allah sent a raven, scratching in the earth, so that he might show him, how he should bury the corpse of his brother. He said, 'Oh woe! Was I not even able to be like this raven so that I could bury the corpse of my brother? Then he remained repenting.”

From this event, people learnt the system of burial which is continuing till today. 

All the prophets built two sites; Places of Worship and Places of Burials.

When the final of all the prophets, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) migrated from Makkah to Madinah he also located two sites; one for constructing the Masjid (which is known as Prophet’s Masjid in Madinah, Saudi) and the other for burial (which is known as JannatulaBaqiCemetry in Madinah Saudi). Both sites are within metres of each other. During the construction of the Prophet's Mosque, on the site he purchased from two orphan children when he arrived after his migration from Makkah to Madinah, Asa'ad Bin Zararah (RA), one of the Companions, died. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) chose the spot to be a cemetery and Asa'ad (RA) was the first individual to be buried in al-Baqi Cemetery in Madinah Saudi. 

Practising on this Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) we have purchase 15 acres of land to establish the first independent Muslim cemetery in the Midlands where people will be buried according to the Islamic requirements, facing the Qiblah direction. The Cemetery will also be maintained according to the Shari’ah rules.
