Burying A Muslim In Non-Muslim Graveyards

The fifth question of Fatwa no. 3081

The Islamic Society has purchased some graves in a Christian graveyard, is it permissible to bury non-Muslims or those who have deviated from Islam, such as the Qadiyanis or others, in the graves that have been specified for us, the Sunnis?

A: It is not permissible to bury Muslims in Christian graveyards, as they will be harmed by their torture. Muslim graves should be in a place separated from a Christian graveyard. As for the Qadiyanis, they are Kafirs (disbelievers), and should not be buried in graveyards designated for Muslims, because they are not of them.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
