How the MFSCA system works?

In case of death of a MFSCA member, the organization inform all members by email or text message about Salah-tul-Janaza’s location, date and time. MFSCA pays funeral expenses to the Mosque from its Reserve Fund created from member's registration fees. Subsequently actual funeral expenses will be divided among all principal members equally except the deceased. The contribution of each principal member of MFSCA is withdrawn from their Bank Accounts after 72 hours via EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer).That is why MFSCA requires a signed form of authorization and copy of a void cheque  from the member to draw money from his/her Bank Account (downloaded from MFSCA website).


When will my services be activated?

Your membership will be activated 30 days after the date of registration, provided we received all required documents from you.


If financially solvent family of a deceased member wants to bear the funeral expenses, what should they do?

If the family of any financially solvent deceased member decides to bear the funeral costs, they can do so. In such cases, MFSCA requires a prior heads up so that the other members are not charged for the funeral costs.


How do I update my information if anything changes?

Please inform MFSCA preferably through email in the event of any change in home/email address, phone number, new born in the family, marriage of a child, etc. You also need to update your profile in MFSCA website.


What if someone dies in his/her home country?

Our service are limited to only within the reach of our partnering Mosques in Canada. Therefore, if a member dies in his/ her home country or out of our operational coverage area, MFSCA does not provide volunteer's coordination service. However, financial assistance is provided upon receiving the required documents. Please review our Policy section for further clarification.


Can an International Student be a member of MFSCA?

Yes, they can apply but there are some conditions. Please check MFSCA Policy section for a detailed explanation before you apply.


If a registered member moves to another part of the country?

If a registered member moves to somewhere in Canada where MFSCA service is not available, please check our Policy section, specifically “Claim Processing” for a member who died and buried outside MFSCA service area / abroad”.


If MFSCA service is available in your new area, make a call to a MFSCA local volunteer and the rest will be taken care of. You must update your address and contact information in your profile on our site and send an email to the Director of Member Affairs, mentioning your recent change of address and contact information.​


What if a Principal member dies?

In the event of death of the Principal member, the surviving spouse can be  the Principal member if she/he accepts to contribute as a principal member. 


Emergency Contact.

In case MFSCA is unable to reach the family of a deceased member, MFSCA requires an emergency contact name and number who can provide information regarding the prior burial arrangement, if any, to fill out relevant documents on behalf of the deceased and help connect MFSCA with the deceased member’s family.​


What should I do if a member dies at home?

Dial 911 . A coroner (Investigation Officer) will come to your home and will issue a death certificate. Call MFSCA area coordinator for your area. Your area coordinator will contact the nearest partnering Mosque. They will provide the deceased’s information to the Mosque.


If an autopsy is required, the deceased person’s body will be taken to the autopsy center. After the autopsy is completed, the MFSCA area coordinator will contact the concerned Mosque to arrange funeral and burial services. You will find the MFSCA area coordinator’s name and contact number under “Volunteer” in the MFSCA website.


Who is an additional member?

Additional members can only be your spouse and unmarred children living with you.​


If a member is blessed with another child what must he/she do?

He/ she must update their profile with MFSCA as soon as possible and pay $15.00+ HST to register the new born as an additional member of the family.​


If a member does not pay his share of the dues, what action will be taken by the Organization?

At first MFSCA will remind the member to pay his/her contribution. However, if he/she fails to do so then MFSCA has the right to revoke his/her membership.


​If the member writes a “will” that he/she should be buried in back home how will MFSCA help?

In such an event Mosque will hand over the body to the family members after completion of the religious rituals and Janaza. Yet MFSCA will stick to its promise to pay the funeral cost actual or upto CA$5,000. For detail please read “Policy” in MFSCA website.
