Burials in Western Australia are administered by Metropolitan Cemeteries Board (MCB), a state government agency. Allocation of land for Muslim burials is administered by MCB and has oversight by the Minister. Some regional jurisdictions such as City of Busselton is not administered by MCB but its local government laws subject to Cemeteries Act 1986 (WA).
A private Muslim burial society, Perth Muslim Burial Society Inc conducts Muslim burials as is Perth Mosque Inc and Canning Sulemaniye Masjid in accordance with Islamic law. Noorul Islam Society Inc and Perth Muslim Burial Society regularly announce Muslim deaths via a instant SMS messaging broadcast into the Muslim community.
Perth Muslim Burial Society is the oldest burial service established in 1986 prior to that Islamic Council of WA under chairmanship of Mr Abdul Rahman Yahya managed Muslim funerals from 1977.
Islamic Council of WA burial subcommittee has drafted a plan to revive its burial service to cater for the growing demand for quality service for the diverse WA Muslim community.
Islamic Council WA and Perth Muslim Burial Society from time to time meet MCB representing Muslim community’s concerns and discusses issues relating to burial requirements or preservation of heritage Muslim burial sites in WA.
The State Government supports its Muslim community and is aware of the community’s changing population demographics hence extra lot in Guildford has been allocated for Muslim burials. There is no question that our Muslim community will require sufficient burial grounds for the future generations and Islamic Council WA and Perth Burial Society intends to take this issue seriously.
