By the grace of ALLAH (s.w.t.) we now have a graveyard of our own, where we are able to bury our deceased Muslim Brothers and Sisters according to the Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) as outlined in the Islamic Shariah. This Cemetery is located in a quiet countryside environment in Laval East at 1099 Montee Masson, St. Vincent de Paul. This is the first and only one on a large scale fully equipped graveyard in Canada where Muslims are buried. This Cemetery is maintained by the ISLAMIC CENTER OF QUEBEC.

We do our best not to refuse a burial of a Muslim for any. It is our collective obligation to the deceased to provide a respectful service, funeral arrangements and graves etc. As required by the Shariah, the deceased body is treated and handled with care and respect.

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّي عَلى مَحَمَّد وَ عَلى آلِ مَحَمَّد كَمَا صَلَّيتْ عَلى إبْرَاهِيْم وَ عَلى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيْم؛ إنَّكَ حَمِيْدُُ مَجِيْد. الَّلهُمَّ بَارِكْ مُحَمَّدْ وَ عَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدْ كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيْم وَ عَلَى آلِِ إِبْرَاهِيْم إِنَّكَ حَمِيْدُُ مَجَيْد ،
ألْلَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِحَيِّنَا وَ مَيِّتِنَا وَ شَاهِدِنَا وَ غَائبِنَا وَ صَغِيْرِنَا وَ كَبِيْرنَا وَ ذَكَرِنَا وَ أُنْثَانَا؛ أَلْلَّهُمَّ مَنْ أَحْيَيْتَهُ مِنَّا فَأَحْيِهِ عَلََى الإسْلَامْ، وَ مَنْ تَوَفَّيْتّهُ مِنَّا فَتَوَفَّهُ عَلَى الإيْمَانْ
ألْلَّهُمَّ اجْعَلَهُ لَنَا فَرَطَا وَاجْعَلْهُ لَنَا أَجْراً وَ ذُخْرَا وَ اجْعَلْهُ لَنَا شَافِعًا وَ مُشَفَّعَا
ألْلَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا لَنَا فَرَطَا وَاجْعَلْهَا لَنَا أَجْراً وَ ذُخْرا وَ اجْعَلْهَا لَنَا شَافِعَةً وَ مُشَفَّعَة
