Apologizing to a person at his grave

Q: If a person died and the other person did not get a chance to apologize to the dead person Can he go to the person's grave and ask for an apology? Will the dead person hear him from his grave?

A: The moment a person dies his actions terminate. There is no such a thing as apologizing to the person of the grave. Make taubah. Perhaps you could make some isaale thawaab for the deceased. Maybe Allah Ta`ala will accept this in place of an apology.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
