Transferring a graveyard from one place to another

Question:

Is the transfer of a graveyard without a valid reason from one place to another allowed?

Answer:

If the transfer of a graveyard is done for the purposes of building a house, mosque or school and given a new land for the graveyard, then   it   will   be   absolutely Haram, (impermissible). The reason behind it being illegal is it leads to a change on the endowment, which is not allowed. Also, it is an insult and disrespectful to the Muslim graves.

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
