How much earth should be placed on the grave?

Question:

Should we put back all the earth on the top of the new grave that came out of the ground whilst digging the grave, or should we only make a small hump above the grave (about the length of a hand)?

Answer:

We should only make a small hump on the grave.

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
