Arrange a Condolence Gathering ('Azza)

If you’d like to arrange an ‘Azza at the Muslim Unity Center, please call our main office: (248) 857-9200. What is the purpose of an ‘Azza? An ‘Azza allows the family of the deceased to specify a date and venue for the public to offer condolences. It releases the grieving family of the obligation to entertain a multitude of guests in their home during their difficult time. It also allows the public to offer prayers and kind words at the convenience of the grieving family. A table in or around the prayer space holds a number of Quran copies for anyone who’d like to sit and read.
