The Garden of Eden cemetery is dedicated to providing a burial place for Muslim families with humility, peace and dignity. It assures Muslim families that their loved ones are cared for according to Islamic code and buried in conformity with the observed traditions of the Islamic faith.

The first phase of about 2,000 burial lots has been in use through the last four years. Before the need arises, the second and the third phases will be developed. Those two additional phases will ensure that we can continue to serve the Muslim community for the next one hundred years.

Purchasing burial lots for yourself and your loved ones before the need arises makes considerable sense. Aside from enabling this Islamic cemetery to pay its debts, it protects you from the soaring prices of burial lots. Purchasing burial lots ahead of time provides peace of mind and relieves families from a heavy burden at the time of death.

The Garden of Eden offers burial lots for less then half of the current prices charged by other local cemeteries. Furthermore, Garden of Eden offers special discounted prices for multiple lot purchases for families, mosques, or Islamic ethnic groups.
