Erecting a structure over a grave and making zikr by a grave


1. Can a person build a wooden structure over a Muslim grave as my family members want to do this over my fathers grave as well as erect a granite headstone and I dont feel it is islamic.

2. Please advise regarding making zikr every sunday at the grave.


1. No, it is not correct.

2. This is baseless.

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