The Lahd (a crevice on the side

Q: I would like to inform you that there are many graveyards in our area. Having no stones to cover graves with, we manufacture concrete stones for this purpose while we do not know whether it is permissible or not. Hoping to free myself from accountability and for fear of being sinful, I wish that Your Eminence will give us a fatwa on the issue.

A: It is not blameworthy. However, it is better to cover them with mud bricks whenever possible. (Part No. 8; Page No. 442) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
