Co-worker is Islamic and her aunt just died. Our department wants to do something appropriate to show our support for her. Any suggsestions would be greatly appreciated.
Is it appropriate to send flowers to an Islamic funeral or family after a death in the family?
Dear reader i don%26#039;t think the question here is about what%26#039;s appropriate or not,i think it%26#039;s more about the sentiment and how it flows into people%26#039;s heart,people%26#039;s soul.
if you send flowers it will be a respect of two cultures one that doesn%26#039;t know what to do to appeal to the other but tries by having flowers sent, i am sure good will will be understood and highly appriciated,and that person will know that out there beyond the realm of family and relatives there people who do Really care in a world where people pretend that they do ,you have a complete and pure heart towards that person,and that will always be clear regardless of the religion at hand.
wish you all the best
Reply:I don%26#039;t see why sending flowers would be wrong.
It shows you care and are there for her.
That%26#039;s all that matters.
Reply:Of course, flowers would be very thoughtful.
Reply:Yes, maybe a plant would be another choice. I know that they would appreciate the thoughtfulness.
