Planting flowers on graves

Q: What is the Shar’ee law of planting flowers or planting trees on graves?

A: There is no basis for this. It was not the general practice of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum).

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

فترى العامة يلقون الزهور على القبور، لا أصل لها في الدين ولا مستند لها من الكتاب والسنة (معارف السنن 1/265)
