Is Reciting Quran at Graveyards Prohibited?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I saw a board inside Janatul-Baqi that says that ” it’s not allowed to recite any Surah of Quran at graveyard because there is no such evidence from Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) life” and furthermore an instructor at Janatul-Baqi advised not to recite any Surah from Quran at the graveyard. Please advise.


A: Refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/12620

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
