Muslim burial in any other graveyard

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum 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:

Asalaam Aliquem.

Is it true that a Muslim should only be buried in a Muslim grave yard,my mother feels that it is not a requirement according to the true Islamic teaching!

Best regards,

Muslim burial in any other graveyard

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His  forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


If there is a muslim graveyard available, then it is obviously purer and better to have the deceased believer honorably buried in a muslim graveyard.


But if one dies in a place where there is no muslim graveyard in the vicinity, then there is no harm in burying the deceased believer in any other 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.


Your Brother in Islam,
