If there are no bricks to use for

Q: The Lahd (a crevice on the side of a grave facing the direction faced for Prayer) used to be closed with a bedding of stones, but now they are closed with cement bricks. As cement is made by fire, we are confused about this.

A: The committee sees nothing wrong with replacing the stone beddings that were used to close the Lahds with cement bricks. As for cement being something that is made by fire, this is not true, and it has no effect on the permissibility of using it for the stated purpose.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
