Muslims value the “eternal burial peace” and therefore often choose to be buried in the country of origin, such as Morocco or Turkey.

Halsema: “It is increasingly difficult to bury the deceased in the country of origin. Many Amsterdammers have long saved for a funeral in the country of origin and have already bought a grave there. Because of the coronavirus and the associated restrictions in air traffic, this funeral cannot take place, this causes a lot of extra suffering. This concerns the funerals of various groups in society, including the Amsterdam Muslim community. ”

Ease suffering

“To mitigate the suffering somewhat, the municipality wants to make it possible that additional costs that must now be incurred by families who cannot bear it, are partly paid by the municipality,” writes the city manager.

At the moment, the municipality of Amsterdam does not have the option of eternal burial rest, but there are possibilities in, for example, Almere or Zuidlaren. In the capital, however, it is difficult to realize eternal grave rest. Graves are cleared over time because space in cemeteries is scarce. “The college empathizes with the Muslim community and understands the desire to make eternal burial peace possible. However, this is not easy, various implementation problems make it difficult to realize eternal burial rights in the short term. ”

In conversation during Ramadan

Halsema will meet with representatives of the Islamic community next week, during Ramadan, to discuss future plans. In her letter Halsema also points out that other funeral ceremonies are also affected by the corona measures and that people cannot gather en masse.

It is therefore possible at municipal cemeteries and crematoriums that people who cannot be physically present can follow the service via a live stream. This service is provided free of charge, as is a DVD with recording of the ceremony. In addition, the municipality makes it possible in certain cases to have a renowned poet write a personal poem for the deceased.
