Being burried

Question ID: 25840

Assalamu alaykum

I have been told that if I am buried near a grave with a soul which faces the punishment of the grave I will also be (somehow) affected by this punishment because of my grave being so near to the grave where punishment is going on.

1) Is this correct?

I’m a reconvert living in a majority non-Muslim country and the government does not provide facilities for Muslims to be buried according to Islamic rules. This means that if I die tomorrow I might be buried in a wooden box, NOT facing qibla and on a non-Muslim cemetery.

2) If the above-mentioned occurs will my soul be affected by this in the barzakh?

1) Yes
2) Your situation is different. May Allaah keep you with Imaan and let you die with Imaan in Madinah. Due to your special circumstances the angels will protect you.
