Covid-19 pandemic has affected matters of death, and how we honour the rights of our departed loved ones in this time. Muslim funeral rites are relatively straightforward, and quick compared to many other religious traditions. The departed is washed in accordance with Islamic traditions; prayers are recited over the body, which is then buried. This usually takes place within a day of death.In a time of pandemic, when the death toll has over taken the ability of funeral parlors to cope, those parlours in the West which specialise in Muslim funerals have been finding it particularly challenging.

I'm a passionate & self-taught photographer who likes to travel and discover new essence of life through travel & lifestyle photography. Being a freelance photographer, my passion is to explore & study the different aspects of human life, witness different cultures, and document the colorful & contrasting side of it. I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs. Through my photographs, I want to share my views and experience with all.
