Aslaamualaikum

I’d like to know about burial.

We buried our father and we put the coffin into the six foot dug grave and poured the soil on top. So basically the soil poured directly onto the coffin. A board or a piece of wood was not placed above the coffin. Hence the soil returned in the grave reached my father’s coffin.

I have read that a board or a piece of wood should be placed above which should not touch the deceased but act as a roof for the deceased. Hence the soil returned in the grave will not reach the deceased but the upper surface of the board.

Have we done the burial wrong?

Jazakallah

Although proper procedures was not followed, it is not sinful.
