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

Answer

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).
