Christian wife is insisting that her Muslim husband be buried in a Christian graveyard
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a muslim to burry another muslim in a christian graveyard because the wife of the deceased is a christian and is insisting on it?
JazakUm Allah Khair

Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, who replied as follows:
It is not permitted, and this woman should not be listened to. He should not be buried anywhere except with the Muslims (in the Muslim graveyard).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
