Q: Me and my wife life where there is no Muslim graveyard. There is only a Christian graveyard. My wife also reverted to Islam. If me or my wife die can we be buried in the Christian graveyard if we don’t have money to send the body to a Muslim country. If someone makes our funeral in a Muslim country masjid while our body is not there, will this funeral be valid while we buried in this non muslim country?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
