Rules & Regulations

AMAA relies on you to follow its rules and regulations and to keep its cemetery grounds clean. Your extra help in this regard can help us save a lot.
  • Any person in need of a grave site for his/her dear one can fill and submit the Online Burial Registration¬†form or meet AMAA representative after printing, filling up and signing the Paper Burial Registration¬†form providing information regarding the deceased for record keeping and receive a copy of the rules and regulations.
  • Notice of at least twenty four (24) hours, before the announced burial time, will be required for digging arrangements.
  • All burials have to be completed during daylight hours only. There is no arrangement for light at the cemetery. Burials have to conform to all state and county requirements.

  • The ground care of the entire cemetery is assumed by the Association. It is, however, the responsibility of the relatives and friends of the deceased to pay generous donations and volunteer help with the future maintenance of the cemetery. We will appreciate your support to this noble cause. All donations should be mailed to the address found on the Donations Page. May Allah (SAW) bless you for your kindheartedness.
  • The association may at any time, without notice, adopt new rules and regulations or amend/alter and/or repeal any rule, regulation and/or sentence in these rules and regulations.
