More Birth Rites In the Islamic religion, marriage is seen as both a civil contract and a joyous occasion. Passages from the Quran are to be read during the ceremony. Following the ceremony, there is usually a feast. Marriage In Islamic religion, death is seen as the most important event in a person's path to god. Family and friends surround the dying person while passages from the Quran are read as the person repents their sins and if possible, will perform rituals of purification. Death Those at the deathbed whisper ‘Shahadah’ into the dying person’s ear. If possible, the dying person will recite it themselves as well. As the person draws near to death, family members recite Surah 36 from the Quran, which describes God’s raising on the Day of Judgment. The deceased must be buried promptly, preferably by sunset on the day of death. The family of the deceased must prepare the body and say the funeral prayers. The body is to be buried in a plain white shroud, and if the person had attended a Pilgrimage to Mecca, then he or she is buried in Pilgrimage Garments. Male family members are to put the body into the grave on it’s right side with it’s face pointed toward Mecca. The last person in the grave then whispers ‘Shahadah’ into the deceased’s ear. Members of the party then throw soil into the grave. The deceased is now in an intermediary state called the ‘Bazarkh’ until God resurrects the dead on the Day of Judgment.
