Living in a place where there is no Muslim cemetery

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

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? 


A: It is better that both of you move away to a place where there are muslims to take care of you and where Muslim people are available.

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