Illuminating the entrances to graveyards in order to light the road
Q 6: Is it permissible
to illuminate the entrances to graveyards in order to light the road when there is a funeral at night,
knowing that the lighting is not intended for the burial process, but only to light the pathway to grave? Please give us a Fatwa, may Allah reward you!
Permanent lighting of the pathways of and entrances to graveyards is not permissible. As for using some means of temporary lighting when there is a funeral procession at night, such as torches, there is nothing wrong with this. (Part No. 7; Page No. 375) May Allah grant us success. May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and his Companions!
