Death Announcement Criteria

The MCC believes in the power of prayer!

Any resident of the East Bay Area (generally Alameda and Contra Costa counties) may request the addition of a relative and a friend to the weekly Friday prayer services dua list. More than 500 worshipers attend the Jumu’ah services at the MCC. Submit your prayer request here.

Additionally, the MCC will send a community-wide message on its dedicated Death Announcement listserv (subscribe here). The criteria for this additional community service are:

  1. a community member who prays at the MCC (does not need to be a member) or at a partner Tri-Valley masjid (SRVIC or ICL);
  2. the deceased must be immediate family, namely a parent, a sibling, or a grandparent, and;
  3. the death must be reported to us within one week of the death.

The MCC may make an exception for religious or community leaders who have served the wider Muslim community in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Due to the volume of requests we receive weekly, we cannot accept requests from anywhere in the U.S. or the world.

Submit the dua request here.
