As the Muslim community is aware about the uphill battle that we had to endure in order to establish the Las Vegas Islamic Cemetery, one of the conditions which was placed upon us is to keep the gate to the cemetery closed at all times. Therefore, we ask for the utmost cooperation of the beneficiary of the cemetery and their families to observe the following rules:

  1. Visitation hours will be between 8 AM- until half an hour before sunset. The visitation will have to be arranged with the Funeral Director’s availability and by appointment.
  2. Private property. Visitors use the cemetery grounds at their own risk and should be aware of the following.

Whether the damage is direct or collateral.

The cemetery assumes liability only if, while performing routine cemetery operations, the   cemetery or its employees cause damage to any grave or its marker. Liability in this case is limited only to the extent of the damage.  The cemetery personnel shall make a reasonable effort to correct any damage that may have occurred.
