How much earth should be placed on the grave?


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)?


We should only make a small hump on the grave.

And Allah ﷻ knows the best

Imam Ahmad Rida Khan رحمة الله تعالى عليه
