Some services I’d really like to see Masjids offer

Tattoo removal (for brothers and sisters)

Electric breast pumps for new mothers

Contacts for Muslim midwives

Training for sisters to become a certified midwife and/or birth attendant

Training in how to prepare a deceased sister/brother for burial

Contacts for sisters and brothers who know how to prepare the deceased for burial

A place for preparing the deceased for burial

Training in how to properly slaughter meat animals

Some all-covering prayer outfits in the sister’s shoe room for anyone to use if they need to.

Some kufis in the brother’s shoe room for anyone to use if they need to. (Perhaps local sisters who can knit or crochet could donate these so a brother could keep the kufi he used.)

I’d  like to see the wealthier masjids who do offer some of these services already help masjids in low income neighborhoods with volunteers and space.

I realize there are websites and such for some of these things, but frankly nothing beats hands-on, in-person training.
