PLACING OF CLOTH OVER THE GRAVE


DIFFERENCES IN THE UMMAT AND SIRAAT-E- MUSTAQEEM, Fiqh / Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

It is also impermissible to place cloths over the graves. Never was a chadar (cloth) ever placed on a grave during the eras of our Nabi (sallAllaahu alaihi wasallam), the Sahaabah (radhiAllaahu anhum), Taabieen or Aimmah-e- Huda (rahmatullahi alaihim ajmaeen). Allaamah Ibn Aabideen Shaami (rahmatullahi alaih) states:

“It is stated in „Al-Ahkaam‟ citing from „Hujjat‟: It is Makrooh (e-Tahrimi) to place a cloth on a grave.” [Raddul
Mukhtaar, page 228, vol.2]
