Strengthening the graves with cement

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


It is impermissible to strengthen the graves by using cement or with baked bricks.   (Raddul Muhtar p.144 v.3)

Imam Sarakhsi (RA) has said, “Do not reinforce the graves because its forbiddance is proven from the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam.”   (Mabsutus Sarakhsi p.26 v.2)

Imam Kasani (RA) has considered it disliked (Makruh Tahrimi) to strengthen the graves.   (Badaaius Sanaai p.320 v.1)
