We Need Graveyards

Editor's Desk
As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu.

As we all know the Muslim populations in the greater Washington DC area of Fairfax County, Loudon County, District of Columbia, Prince Georges County, Montgomery County, Howard County, Baltimore County & City, Frederick County keeps on increasing every year by great numbers.  When we try to bury one of our community members, it has become troublesome for some and very costly for others.  To solve the urgent needs some groups have already taken measures to buy portions of graveyards through a sharing arrangement.This is a temporary solution which is not satisfactory to many.

I am therefore urging the areas of 2 dozen masjids to form groups -- 2, 3 or 4 clusters -- to buy large lots in the rural areas of Virginia and Maryland where the land prices are relatively cheaper and which have good highway access.  I know there is already one such Islamic Graveyard (Jannatul Firdous) that is operational in Frederick County, Maryland.  With this issue in mind, I think three graveyard locations can serve the entire capital region: Waldorf/Upper Marlboro, Randallstown, and Loudon County, Virginia.
