Christian wife is insisting that her Muslim husband be buried in a Christian graveyard

Question: 4824

Is it permissible for a muslim to burry
another muslim in a christian graveyard because the wife of the deceased is a christian
and is insisting on it?
JazakUm Allah Khair

Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah and his family.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih
al-‘Uthaymeen, who replied as follows:

It is not permitted, and this woman should not be listened to. He
should not be buried anywhere except with the Muslims (in the Muslim graveyard).
