View Full Version : Is this allowed? Reading Quran in grave

To create a grave and put a blanket or something soft there so you can go inside and read Quran and reflect about death. I read we should think about death often. I just remember seeing on the net someone who created a grave and was there maybe reading the Quran. I think it's for the purpose of preparing for the hereafter and to think about death.

“Whoever visits the grave of his father and mother or the grave of one of both on Friday and recites surah al Yasin there, Allah (swt) will forgive the owner of the grave.”

Tabarani and Bayhaqi narrated from Ibn Omar (ra):
