Praying in a Masjid where someone is buried

Q 2: Is it permissible to perform Salah (Prayer) in a Masjid (mosque) where one person or more are buried due to necessity as it is the only available Masjid for offering the congregational Salah and Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer?


A: It is not permissible to perform Salah in a Masjid where one person or more are buried. This grave or graves should be dug up and moved to the public graveyard. (Part No. 1; Page No. 403) Consequently, you must do your best to find another Masjid to perform the congregational Salah and Jumu`ah Prayer.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
