Islam as the complete code of life has a set of complete instructions for both the dying person and for those around him or her who are charged with the sacred duty of performing the last rites. Due to non-Islamic influences, Muslims have drifted away from the established practice of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and his Companions (may Allah be pleased with them all). Many Muslims no longer know or practice the necessary rites, and often mix in un-Islamic practices with the funeral ritual. Dr. Bilal Philips has written Funeral Rites in Islam in order to serve the needs of English-speaking Muslims, using easy-to-understand explanations and instructions based strictly on the fundamental sources of Islam-the Qur’an and the Sunnah…more [PDF] Funeral Rites in Islam by Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips

In his own words: Imam Hassan Guillet’s address at Quebec City funeral for 3 mosque victims

This guy was empoisoned. But we want Alexandre to be the last one to have a criminal act like that. We want to stop it. One of the definitions of madness is to do exactly the same thing and expect a different result.
