Dear sister,
Thank you very much for your kind words. May Allah continue to shower the Hamdani wisdom.
I will be interested to know or read the word of the service. It may be something very new to me. In my area, once a person dies, he/she is given a ritual bath (in a very traditional way), then the corpse laid on a table is covered with a piece of cloth on which is written some Arabic words that probably only very few people may know the meaning. Then people will be turning round the table to see the deceased. Family members and friends will be crying silently to avoid that the deceased be bitten by the angels if once raises his/her voice. Then the local imam will come and the corpse put in front of him for prayer. Only men stand behind the imam for prayer, women are far away. Once the prayer is finished, the corpse is buried and the day of Dua'a is fixed generally in the next three days. On the third day, there is large crowd to pray for the deceased. The local imam will merely talk about God but the most important thing is the big party that follows (a lot of food and drink). After that, another dua'a will be on 40th, 100th day and one year later...:-P

May Allah guide us.
