burying more then one person in a grave

Question ID: 31102

Below is a question which you answered.I have copied and pasted the question and answer because I have another question relating to this: the question is: what if the husband dies as a shaheed then what will be the rulling because a shaheeds body does not decompose
Please could you clarify the position of a person in India who requested he be buried in the same grave as his spouse who died 9 years previously? This was mutually agreed by the husband and wife and the request was carried out according to the wishes of the couple, did they act according to Shariah?Answer
This is permissible. Generally there will be just bones after 9 years. Move it aside, bury the next person.
And Allah Knows Best

The body of a Shaheed generally does not decompose, is not the rule. Grave can be opened, if body there, close, If only bones, then put aside and bury wife.
