Is it permissible to raise the hands after burying the dead person and recite Al-Fatihah

A: After burying a dead person, it is Islamically prescribed to stand by the grave, supplicate to Allah to forgive them and grant them steadfastness. This is to be done individually and not collectively. As for reciting Al-Fatihah or other chapters of the Qur'an by the graves, this is a Bid`ah (innovation in religion) that is unlawful to do, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Anyone who does an action which is not in accordance with this matter of ours (Islam) will have it rejected. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
