Mohammad Nasirullah has been acting on creating Muslim Funeral Fund. He says, “As an experienced insurance professional I see many of our elderly in New York are looking for assistance regarding insurance to cover the need for funeral expenses. A small face amount of life policy is helping them to meet their needs for funeral expenses. But premium may not be affordable often. I believe that life insurance premium should not be expensive. It should be free of cost even. We cannot deny that medical science has advanced a lot, but we can never predict the death of our near and dear ones. And moreover, this expense comes on the nearest relatives and neighbors if family cannot provide. Government may provide $250 for this purpose. What this amount can do regarding getting into coffin and going into ground? The Al Qur’an also has a verse (Surah Bakarah, Ayat 240) on protection of family in case the breadwinner dies.”
