Where should a Muslim be buried?


Which type of cemetery is suitable for a deceased Muslim?


The deceased should be buried close to the graves of righteous people because their blessings cover all the people around them, even if they were punishable. The Prophet ﷺ advised us: ‘Bury the dead bodies between good and righteous people.’ He ﷺ also added: ‘The deceased who are around them are not unlucky. If it is not possible then bury them between their relatives and friends, it would please them, as though it was before their death.’

And Allah ﷻ knows the best
