Burying the decease on land which is rented


Is it allowed to bury a person in a land which was taken on lease? Is it obligatory to own the land prior to making it a graveyard?


It is allowed but the permission of the landlord is compulsory. Similarly, the scholars have ruled that it is permissible to build a mosque on such a land that has a lifetime lease.

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
