Hadith query

Q: Is it true that there is a hadith stating something to this effect: “Only ambiyaa are allowed to be buried in structures.” If it is a صحيح حديث then why are the two khalifas (hazrat Abu-bakr and hazrat umar) buried in a structure?


A: We have not come across this hadeeth.

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